Bulletin upgrades website

Posted in:

The Bandera Bulletin is pleased to announce the release of a new website and digital edition of the newspaper.

This new service, which launched on Friday, Sept. 13, brings readers the latest news online along with an exact replica of the printed newspaper, said officials with eType Services which created the products.

Upon the publication of each new issue of the Bulletin, a registered digital subscriber will receive an email, notifying him or her of the issue’s availability and providing a link to connect the subscriber to the current edition.

With its flip-book page turning format, zoom-in functionality and search capabilities, the new e-Edition offers the latest in digital newspaper technology while continuing to provide a classic newspaper reading experience, officials said.

The new website is built on the latest open source code that creates a more clutter-free online reading experience that also allows the reader the opportunity to control what he or she is reading.

The replica online edition is available as an interactive flip-book presented in a format that allows for double-clicking on an article to open it up in a full-text, pop-up window that is easier to read.

The format also allows readers to sort content if desired.

Jon Deeley, the publisher of the Bulletin, said the online upgrade “is just another component in an ongoing effort to improve our connection with the community we serve, as well as increase the exposure of the town of Bandera, its news and events.”

He has redesigned the print edition of the newspaper since coming on board in Bandera in July and has initiated a quarterly magazine for the newspaper called the Bandera Bulletin Trailhead that will be introduced to readers in another week.

The new digital edition of the paper is available to currently registered digital subscribers and to some print subscribers.

Print subscribers may need to register at the pay-wall on the site with a username and password for digital access to the online products. There is a button at the paywall labeled “Already a Print Subscriber?” that allows existing print subscribers to set up the username and password.

Subscribers can log in to the new website using his or her email address as his username and the word “bandera,” in all lower-case letters, as the password.
