Between September 2011 and February 2012, I led MinnPost through a site redesign and migration to an open source CMS. MinnPost launched its new — and responsive — website on February 14. To learn more about the redesign process, read "The new MinnPost." Or check out some of the responses we received when we launched.
A few of the new features we are particularly excited about:
- Articles now have related stories and "More Like This" to help you find stories that interest you
- You can visit section pages, like Politics & Policy, to see more from our most popular topics. You can also subscribe to these sections.
- It's easier than ever to find stories from your favorite authors — just click on their name to see their bio page and a list of all articles they've written
- You'll find department pages, like our Data & Maps hub, and topic pages, like our collection of articles about the marriage amendment
- Quickly find your favorite department on our Columns page
- The site is built to be responsive, which means it will adjust to your tablets and mobile devices for easier reading and navigation.
We're still working on a number of features that we'll be rolling out over the next few months. That's one of the great things about being on an open source system — the progress never stops.
None of this would have been possible without the amazing work both by my team at MinnPost and by Gorton Studios.
