The Press Democrat’s redesigned website is now live, and we welcome your feedback about the changes.

The site was rebuilt to allow easier navigation of key topic areas, better display of our stories and photos, and much faster load times.

We last redesigned our website five years ago, and this new design is aided by the many advances in technology since then. It also reflects what you, our readers, have been telling us. In your emails, letters and calls, you’ve asked for a website that is more stable and less prone to technical problems, that delivers news faster and makes it clear what the big local news stories are, that better showcases our award-winning photography, and that is easier to get around.

We’re grateful to the many community members who helped shape the direction of this new site with their candid feedback and insight.
