Editor's Notebook

A Daily Gazette news blog
The editors on the news

We got a makeover

Our redesigned website is up and functioning this morning. We launched the site yesterday afternoon, retiring a site that has served us ably for more than five years. In the digital world, that's a long time.

The new site is intended to make it easier for you to find what you're looking for here. We also wanted to make use of the site's power to organize and display our vast local news coverage. One of the nicest features of the site is its communities section, which allows the folks in Rotterdam, for example, to see just the stories we've written about their town.

The site remains a work in progress. We'll be adding features in the weeks to come that should make your visits to our website even richer.

We designed and created our site in-house, with programming done by Dan Goodspeed and Jim Grandy, our assistant general manager. Jeff Haff, web editor, is responsible for much of the design.

Let us know if you stumble upon any problems or have suggestions for improving the site. And thanks for reading.

I'm enjoying the new format very much! Brighter graphics, bolder text, nice layout, easy to find my favorites. Well done!

Looks good but the crossword puzzle and Sudoku links are not working

New format looks good and responds faster than the old; unfortunately, even with an online-only subscription, I am not able to access all articles (it says I need to login to read, even if I am already logged in); resubscription choices do not cover online-only. What's the point of paying for a subscription if access is denied?

Agree - tried to read "We Recommend" - a day old article. Was already logged in, so I'm supposed to pay an additional $2? Not happening.

That shouldn't be happening. What "recommend" story were you trying to read?

We think we have fixed that problem. I apologize for that and hope it's the last one you encounter with this redesign. If it's not, let us know.

Great job with the new website! Nice graphics and it flows well. For a small town newspaper you guys put out a very good product both in print and online. Congratulations.

New format way too cluttered. Take a look at the Times Union site for a neat and clean presentation.
