Earlier this year we unveiled a new website for the Citizen’s Advocate, New York Mills Dispatch and Frazee-Vergas Forum.
While we have heard a number of positive comments about the overall design, readability and functionality of the new websites, we have also heard a few concerns in regards to our e-editions. In the past, an email was sent each week when a new e-edition was posted to our website. This was done through a third party vendor that hosted our old e-edition website.
While an email is not sent each week to notify you of a new e-edition, we want to let you know that our e-edition is posted each Tuesday morning, usually by 9 a.m. for the week. Our website stories are being updated throughout the week as well.
Even though you need to go to our websites at www.henningadvocate.com, www.nymdispatch.com or the www.frazeeforum.com to view the latest issue, we also learned of another way to quickly get to our websites from your phone or iPad.
All you need to do on an Android phone is go to our e-edition web page and click on the 3 buttons near the web browser bar. You can then click on a button that says Add to home screen. You’ll be able to add a name to the shortcut, which will allow you to simply click on that button from your phone whenever you want to visit our website.
The same can be done on an iPhone or iPad by clicking on the share button on the bottom of your phone and click on Add to home page.
We hope this small trick will make accessing our websites a bit easier for you, while also allowing you to make the most of the new features we have on our websites.
I would also like to remind you that each week we update the photo galleries on our websites. The photo galleries feature most of the pictures we take each week, many of which are not included in the newspaper due to space considerations. The pictures can be purchased on our website and delivered right to your front door.
If you ever have a problem with your e-edition or the new websites please don’t hesitate to give us a call at any time.
Now I am not a hunter, nor do I pretend to be one either, but every year about this time it seems like one cannot talk to another person for more-than a few minutes without the subject of deer hunting coming up.
We want to continue a tradition of featuring deer hunting pictures in our newspaper. All you have to do is drop off a copy of your picture at the newspaper office, email it to email@example.com or share it with us on our Facebook page. We will run all of the pictures we receive in an upcoming issue of the Citizen’s Advocate.
The picture can be of a doe or buck, big or small. All we need to know is who got the deer and who is in the picture.
If you have any questions feel free to give me a call at (218) 548-5585 at any time.
