We truly appreciate that you have chosen The Times as your source for local and state news.
We take that responsibility very seriously, and we’re committed to doing everything we can to make the experience a great one for our readers. In that spirit, we’ve rolled out some important changes that will make our website, nwi.com, even more useful.
We’ve revamped the digital experience to make it easier for you to connect with what you’re looking for, whether that’s up-to-the-minute breaking news, expanded content from the daily paper, sports scores, recipes or information about the products and services our advertisers have to offer.
The first thing you might notice is a cleaner appearance all the way around. We have streamlined the navigation and content on our home page, so you can quickly find what you need.
We now have access to analytics that allow us to know how readers use nwi.com. We weighed every bit of that data as we redesigned our website. We hope you’ll agree that it’s an exciting change for the better.
The redesign incorporates responsive design. In the past, the desktop version of our website and the version you accessed on a phone or tablet were different, although they did have some similarities. Our new technology allows The Times’ website to automatically adjust to fit the size of your screen no matter which device you are using.
All the content you rely on is still there, and now it’s even easier to find breaking news updates, along with feature stories, entertainment options, a wide variety of voices in the opinion section and of course, prep, college and professional sports coverage.
Site menus have been redesigned, too — we’ve collected all the tools you need in one easy-to-find location on our site to find your news, play games or capitalize on our classified advertising.
One link is especially important — in fact, it’s so important that we’ve placed it in two spots. In the left navigation bar and at the bottom of the page, you’ll find a “Contact Us” feature. That’s because we always want to hear what you think and answer any questions you may have.
These changes mean that now is the perfect time to activate your digital account with The Times. Digital Access is part of your Full Access subscription package and entitles you to all of our digital products and services, the daily e-edition and unlimited stories, galleries and videos on our website. All you have to do is click on the “Activate” button on the website. Even if you love the print product (and we’re glad you do!), we’re happy to be able to help you stay up to date while you’re out of town or to help you keep others in touch with the latest news in the Region.
We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
