About our changes at Kansas.com

Q: Where are the obituaries?

 

A: Click on "Obituaries" in the blue bar near the top of the page to go directly to the Obituaries.

 

Q: Where is the e-Edition?

 

A: You can find a link to the "e-Eagle" on the bottom of every page of the site, on the left under "Subscriptions." You'll also see links to sign up for newsletters, access our Facebook page and Twitter feed, and other interactive services.

 

Q: Why change?

 

A: Our main goal for the new design has been to make the site easier to use and less cluttered, while still providing all the information you expect to find. You should immediately notice that the speed of the site has improved. And, the site is now designed to work well on your phone or tablet as well as your desktop computer. Just type "kansas.com" in the browser on your device.

 

Q: Am I going to get used to this only to have you change it again?

 

A: This is the first version of our new site, and we do expect to add features and enhancements in the weeks and months ahead. But the look of the site will basically remain the same.

 

Q: Will I need to register again?

 

A: No. Your existing username and password have been carried over to the new site.

 

Q: I can't find something because it's not where I'm used to seeing it. What do I do?

 

A:  Go to the search window at the top of any page, and type in a keyword for what you're looking for; it should appear in a listing of content with that keyword in it. The search window is a great way to find content on our site, and is much improved over the search we had on the site before today.

 

Q. What are the primary sections of this new site?

 

A: As listed in the blue bar near the top, our primary sections are News, Sports, Business, Living, Entertainment and Opinion. In addition, if you hover over those primary sections in the blue bar, you'll see links to the key subsections, blogs and columns, plus the top headlines for the section. Click on what you're interested in.

 

On your phone, you'll see three horizontal lines on the left of the nameplate. Tap on those and you'll see the primary sections. Tap on one of those and you'll see the subsections and blogs.

 

 Q: Where is the best place to find breaking news?

 

A: Check the "Latest News" digest at the top of the home page for latest news. You can also find news on your favorite topics - sports, business, etc. - by going to that section.

 

Q: I have my favorite sections or pages on your site bookmarked. Will those bookmarks still work?

 

A: Yes, they should. We did remove some redundant sections.

 

Q: How do I find what other people are reading?

 

A: A list of "Trending Stories" of the day can be found on the right side of most pages on the site.

 

Q: I can't find what I am looking for, what do I do?

 

A: One of the improvements on the new site is a stronger, more efficient search function. You can go to the search box at the top of the site and type in a name or description for what you're trying to find.

 

Q: How do I find photo galleries and video?

 

A: Galleries and videos are published in their relevant sections - Wichita State, Local News, etc.

Q: I can "like" a story on other sites and have it show up on my Facebook page. What about here?

 

A: Yes. When you are on a story or gallery page, a Facebook "Share" button is located just beneath the headline. You can click on that and share the story on Facebook.

 

Q: Can I still comment on articles?

 

A: Yes. In fact, you can now comment on photos and videos as well.
