has a new look

Times-Picayune editor Jim Amoss tells readers that “we’ve heard your requests and concerns about the website” and that the changes unveiled today are “part of a continuing effort to respond. More changes are coming soon as the site continues to evolve.”

The editor points out that the new color scheme is “drawn from the unique shades of our city’s historic houses and buildings.”

Meanwhile, Times-Picayune sister newspaper, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, has introduced the web design used by other Advance newspapers and readers are — of course! — complaining not pleased. “It will take a little time to get used to, it’s a different design,” says editor-in-chief Denise Polverine. “But our hope is that when you start using the site, you will find it much easier to use.”
