“The New York Times appears to have done away with its ‘Single Page View’ on its web site,” Gawker’s John Cook tweeted last Friday.
I was still getting the one-page option, so I figured it was a glitch.
Then today I got this email from a reader:
on some articles the NYT no longer gives single-page options. I think it’s crap to do this with a paywall in place and without announcing it. they’ll say it’s just a test no doubt.
It’s no test; Times spokesperson Eileen Murphy explains what happened:
We unintentionally removed the single-page button when we launched a new version of our share tools last Thursday. By late Friday afternoon, it had been replaced. Users may need to refresh cache for it to take.
(I put Murphy’s last line in bold.)
