A powerful new digital tool for our readers

We want to invite you to try a powerful new tool for those who like their news digitally — our relaunched times-herald.com website.

Technology is constantly changing, and our goal is to be at the forefront of that change in order to better serve you, our readers.

As you will see, the new website design is much different than the previous one, which served us well for nearly five years. But five years is an eternity in the Internet age.

We believe this new site is more customer-friendly, especially in the areas of navigation and readability.

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.

Many larger newspapers are already moving toward the “Responsive” design feature. We are one of the smallest to undertake this change, and that is due solely to our dedicated and talented staff.

As with any new launch, we still have the cliched “kinks” and “bugs” to work out. This will be an ongoing process to ensure we meet your needs. We want to ensure you get your Times-Herald the way you want it, whether by print, digital or a combination of both.

We want to thank you for your continued support and understanding as we move forward in this new digital age. So please enjoy browsing around the website as we continue to improve it.
