gets a makeover

Take a tour of the new and let us know what you think.|

Click over to today, and you’ll see our website has undergone a major makeover with the help of the Press Democrat's Online Department, creators of the award-winning

Using updated technology, we created a site that will allow for easier navigation, a better display of our stories and photos, and much faster load times. You will also find a new mobile site for improved access to news on the go.

We’ve long heard that our site is difficult to navigate, and our goal was to fix those problems with a sleek new design.

The new homepage makes it easy to sign up for our daily news blast or view our e-edition online. You’ll also see prominent social media icons on each page and each story, making it simple to share with friends.

Changes of this magnitude often take time, so bear with us as we perfect the site to give you the best experience possible.
