Sky-Hi launches new website

Sky-Hi News Staff Report

Starting today, you’ll see a new website design at

Why the change?

It’s part of a completely new computer software system that not only is used to create the content on our website but also supports all the stories, photos, headlines and pages that we produce for our print newspaper.

It’s called a content-management system and the Sky-Hi News is getting a new one. It represents a major investment in how we put together the print newspaper, as well as move stories, photos and other items to our website. And as part of the change, our website will look entirely different. Readers may also see differences in our print editions.

The website is being re-designed to be easier to read no matter what platform readers use — computer, tablet or mobile.

The design is based on reader feedback and research on how people use news-oriented websites. The home page design is simplified and cleaner than what you experience on most newspaper websites, including our former site. Photo display will be better and related article links will be much improved.

As with any change, the new website will take some getting used to simply because it is different from what online readers have become accustomed.

And as with anything new, we know it won’t be perfect on day one. So, in advance, we ask that you please bear with us.

We will have someone in our newsroom this week to help us work through problems, and we expect the fixes to be quick.
