CHARLESTON – The Web site for state Attorney General Darrell McGraw's office has a new look.

The site – www.wvago.gov -- underwent a complete overhaul late last month, according to Chief Deputy AG Fran Hughes said.

"It's up and running," she said. "We're still working on it."

Hughes said the site update was done to meet changing demands.

"There was a recognition that more and more people are using the Internet," she said. "We wanted to make the site more user-friendly and to provide a lot of information to consumers.

"For example, we wanted to utilize some sort of scam alert so we could notify consumers when necessary."

Before, the main page featured a message from McGraw. Now, it has more of a "newsy" feel, with headlines, consumer alerts, product recall information and news headlines. It also includes links to pages contact information, a staff directory, FAQs, forms and publications as well as specific information for consumers and seniors.

Hughes said the redesign was done in-house by computer people in the AG's office.

"We didn't think that it was a very professional-looking Web site," she said. "We think it looks better now."
