Staff at the Lincoln County Publishing Co. are pleased with the initial public response to the upgrades for TheLincolnCountyNewsOnline.com and The Lincoln County News E-Edition. However, as with many such projects, improvements and adjustments continue to take place; with many of these in response to input from readers.
Among the most prominent points of concern are issues with the new E-Edition, including navigation of the pages.
“We are working on a detailed instruction sheet to assist our readers in navigating the E-Edition, which operates in a fashion perhaps more familiar with users of portable devices,” said Greg Latimer, Special Projects Coordinator for the Lincoln County Publishing Co.
The short version for navigating the E-Edition involves only four basic steps, according to Latimer. These steps are for users of laptop and desktop computers.
One… When viewing the entire page, double click on a story or photo that interests you and a larger, clearer version will come up on your screen. (Note: The “View Size” option on the E-Edition home page, in the upper left of the top navigation area, can be used to enlarge the page in small increments, which will give it more resolution and therefore be easier to read the headlines so you can select a story.)
Two… The larger, clearer version – once onscreen – can be moved by pressing the left click on your mouse and using the mouse to “drag” the page image to your preferred point of interest.
Three… When the reader wants to return from the enlarged page to the full-page images, left click twice on the enlarged page and the reduced image will be displayed.
Four… The navigation area on the E-Edition home page (located above the page text and below the TheLincolnCountyNewsOnline.com blue navigation bar) has numbers such as “2-3” that can be clicked on to allow the reader to navigate the inside pages of the E-Edition.
Portable device users appear to have had no trouble using finger strokes to navigate their way around both the TheLincolnCountyNewsOnline.com and The Lincoln County News E-Edition.
The Lincoln County Publishing Co. staff will continue to make enhancements to TheLincolnCountyNewsOnline.com and The Lincoln County News E-Edition, including the basic steps outlined above.
“We thank our readership for their input, and we look forward to a continuing dialogue as we work toward a positive conclusion,” Latimer said.
