It took some blood, some sweat and some tears but The Daily Pennsylvanian finally has a new web site.
The decision to leave an established web provider, College Publisher, and go off on our own was not an easy one and the process was anything but simple. But, ultimately, we wanted the freedom to provide our readers with what they wanted online.
The new site’s differences begin with its URL: www.thedp.com. While your old dailypennsylvanian.com links will still work, the new URL is simpler and easier. The look of the web site, of course, has also changed. It has more emphasis on featuring interesting articles and making photos and multimedia accessible.
But, most importantly, the philosophy of the site has changed. Instead of an issue-based platform where we upload stories once a day, the site will update 24 hours a day. Old articles will be easily accessible on the homepage days after they are published.
Soon, the web site will feature a comprehensive events system. With this system, student groups and university departments can input information about their upcoming events and make it available to readers online and in print. The system will extend our current events@penn listings.
We hope you enjoy our new web site and its new features. Have any feedback or anything you’d like to see? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
