The Newnan Times-Herald’s new-look website – times-herald.com – has been up and running for almost a week.

Most people tend to agree anything for free these days is a really big deal.

And to celebrate this week’s launch of the new Times-Herald.com website, The Newnan Times-Herald has announced a limited time, free offer to all online visitors.

The NTH digital edition is a paid, subscriber-based online product. It is an exact digital replica of the print edition. For a short period, it will be opened up.

“The digital edition is a little over a year old,” says NTH Digital Editor Joey Howard. “These days, most every newspaper has some form of a digital or e-edition. Our launch of the new website seemed the perfect time to re-introduce our readers to the digital edition.”

“Our online readers have seen the paragraph on our premium content stories ... ‘to read this story in full content, you must be a Print or Digital Subscriber.’ This is an opportunity for everyone to have access to the digital edition for a short time and to touch it, use it and see just what the product offers.”

In addition, visitors reading individual stories normally behind the paywall will be able to click a link and read the entire story for free.

“Many of our online readers think that everything in the print edition appears on Times-Herald.com. That’s simply not the case. There’s always plenty of local items that never make it to Times-Herald.com.”

The digital edition can be read in either a single- or double-page mode, either in text or a graphic format, translated to as many as six languages and all stories – along with photos – can be printed or emailed. And all links are live… whether it is an email or website address in a story or a website address in a retail advertisement.

All print subscribers to The Newnan Times-Herald have free access to the digital edition just by activating an account. And that’s important, especially if someone is out of town on vacation or a long weekend and wants to see a page-by-page account of the print edition online.

Non-print subscribers can purchase the digital edition either by single days (daily $1, Sunday $2.50) or 3-, 6- or 12-month packages.

And with the relaunch of Times-Herald.com on Monday, progress is continuing to be made each day with the addition of both new and old features. Some of the new features since early in the week have been social media (Facebook and Twitter) share tools, “live” links for email and website addresses, quick access to Sound Offs from the day’s main editorial, commenting through Facebook and photo cutlines/specific credits.

One aspect about the new-look Times-Herald.com we think our readers will find appealing is the “Responsive” design feature. By “Responsive” design, we simply mean that you’ll get the same Times-Herald.com website no matter which device you are using — desktop computer, tablet, laptop, iPad, Kindle, Nook, iPhone or Android. And the body copy, photos and advertising will adjust in size proportionately to the view portal of each device.

Another key feature is you can use your handheld device in either portrait or landscape mode and the website will automatically convert to the proper viewing.

At the bottom of the website, an easy-to-use reference is divided into six sections – Advertising, Archives, Blogs, Traffic/Weather, Services and Follow Us.

The Quick Vote should return early next week as well as the full complement of Associated Press lineups.
