Feb. 17, 2011 - The Leonard Graphic is excited to announce the new company website is online and ready for viewers/readers at www.theleonardgraphic.com. The site currently has most articles from the beginning of 2011 posted and will be updated weekly with the previous issue's news. Though the online version includes just about everything published in print, it is arranged a smidgen differently and will take some getting used to.
Those visiting the website will see several tabs across the top of the site where the articles are organized. The Home tab will take you back to the main page, and the rest are categories for the news items and other sections.
The Leonard News tab is home to most front-page news that runs in print - with the exception of school and church news and the occasional Celeste news article that runs front-page - and also hosts the Legal and Archive sections. The news articles are organized between a couple of categories under that tab depending on if they're stories (headlines) or briefs (newsflash).
The Celeste News, Four Corners and Eye of the Tiger tabs are pretty self-explanatory and the news in these sections coincides with what runs in the print edition on those same pages.
The Advertise tab provides information for online and print advertising. There are currently five different options available in online advertising - large square, skyscraper, small square, top banner and bottom banner - and prices vary for each. Anyone interested in one of these spaces should contact Ava Barlow at 903-587-2850. Nothing has changed with print advertising - including the fact that the newspaper needs more in order to print a bigger paper.
The Subscribe tab currently just has the subscription information posted, though there are hopes to have a way for customers to order a subscription straight from the site in the future.
Above the main tabs and down the right page are two satellite menus that contain additional routine options for most news websites - a forum where we hope to stir up some hot topics, a photo section where the excess photos taken at certain events that don't make print will have a home, a games section for the gamers, a classified section, contact us information, about us and finally, web links, which provides access to other important sites related to Leonard, Celeste and their local governments.
One future plan for the site is to have an e-delivery system where readers may purchase editions of The Leonard Graphic in PDF format.
