New website coming soon

Posted

The Frederick Press-Leader is in the process of redesigning our website. As a result, we have taken down the paywall for the month of January so that residents can read the newspaper online and let us know what complications they experience with the new website.

Some of the new items will include new tabs at the top of the site to take you to particular areas of interest such as News, Sports, Obituaries and Agriculture. But we’re also implementing a way for you to purchase photos by our staff. Right now, all photos are on there, even ones submitted to us. That’s one of the kinks we’re working on because we aren’t going to be selling submitted photos that we don’t have the rights to.

We’re also working on a Calendar where you could submit your events and it would populate the site. That’s in the works.

If you find items that aren’t working properly, send an email to rick@altustimes.com to let us know. He’ll advise the web developers of the issue.

We have also implemented a special discounted online rate of $60 a year and a daily rate, in case people just want to read one edition. The daily rate of $2 helps to cover the cost of offering the one-day service.

But don’t get addicted to the free news. Our reporters like to get paid and paid circulation, including the online version, helps augment advertising to pay for our salaries.
