Welcome to the new SunSentinel.com: What’s changed, FAQs and more
You’re not imagining it: The Sun Sentinel’s website has a new look!
We’ve rebuilt sunsentinel.com on a new platform with a simpler, cleaner design that loads faster so you can spend less time waiting — and more time reading our local journalism. With the new site, you can:
— Get a full and uncluttered reading experience on any device.
The site can be easily viewed on mobile, desktop or tablet devices with a custom view for each. We’ve also reduced a lot of widgets and other intrusions that detracted from the reader experience.
— Quickly find what you are looking for.
The streamlined site navigation is better organized, making it easier to find the sections and topics that interest you.
— Better identify subscriber-exclusive content.
Stories and features that are exclusive to subscribers are labeled on the homepage and throughout the site, better highlighting the value of our digital subscriptions.
— More easily sign up for our newsletters and e-mail alerts.
A sign-up button is prominently displayed on the homepage below Latest Headlines, and in the main navigation bar. Also, our new platform allows us to more easily create additional newsletters, so stay tuned.
While we’ve tried our best to fix what you didn’t like about the old site, we realize there’s always room to improve. We will continue to make tweaks based on your feedback. What do you like? What isn’t working for you? Let us know at [email protected].
