A new website which adapts for different devices has been launched by a regional daily.
The Star, Sheffield, has relaunched its new responsive site to “very positive” feedback from readers.
The site, pictured below, which went live last Tuesday, is tailored to adjust its dimensions automatically depending on whether the reader in question is using a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
The switch sees The Star following the lead of fellow Johnston Press daily the Scotsman, which completed the change to a fully responsive format in November.
Ben Green, acting head of digital at The star, said: “”We are very pleased with The Star’s new website – it looks better than ever – and the launch was an absolute success.
“There was a real buzz around the newsroom on launch day, and the feedback we have had back from readers so far has been very positive.
“The website has been designed very much with our audience in mind. Not only does it look better but it also makes it easier for readers to navigate around the various sections, and find the content they want.”
He added: “”In the week since the new website was launched the audience figures have been very encouraging and demonstrate that our readers really like the new service.”
