In November we introduced the new DeseretNews.com. We explained our cleaner design and asked for your input on everything from color schemes to font sizes.
We’ve spent the past few months responding to your feedback and making sure we’re living up to our “new look, same great taste” goal. If you’ve been using the new site during this time, you may have encountered some missing pieces or bugs. We’ve worked through most of these kinks, and a few of our most recent improvements include the following:
1. We’ve cut the load time of our pages in half.
2. We’ve improved the accuracy of our search results.
3. We’ve moved our remaining pages, including TV Listings and High School Stats, into the new design.
4. We’ve improved the accuracy of our data, so the Most Popular stories list better reflects what readers like you are enjoying right now.
With these changes in place, we are ready to make the redesigned site the default for all users. For a few days there will still be a link at the top of the site that allows you to switch back to the old design.
If you find yourself using this link to return to the old site, or if you have suggestions for the new site, please use the blue “Feedback” tab on the left side of the site to help us understand how we can improve your experience. We want the new DeseretNews.com to be your go-to news source.
