Why are complete Arkansas Democrat-Gazette stories not available through the News, Sports, and Features links in the menu bar?
ArkansasOnline provides brief versions of many Arkansas Democrat-Gazette articles and full stories from various wire services without a membership. However, complete versions of Arkansas Democrat-Gazette stories are available for 7 days after publication only to newspaper and online subscribers who have a username and password. To get a username and password go to the subscription required tabs on ArkansasOnline.com..
When I click on some articles or comics in the "printed edition online" edition they don't appear in a larger screen.
Due to copyright and permissions agreements some articles and comics are not available online. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette makes every reasonable attempt to republish all newspaper content in our online editions. The Sunday comics section are produced by an outside company and inserted into the newspaper; therefore, those comics are not available online. Here is a quick list of items that are restricted: How your Delegation voted, Foreign Rates, Most widely held stocks, Money market funds, Cathy, Cul de Sac, Doonesbury, Garfield, Overboard, Tank McNamara, and Dennis the Menace and Judge Parker.
RSS is a syndication function for news outlets and blog writers that allows readers to quickly see new content without going to the site. For instance, readers can view the latest headlines from ArkansasOnline from the Firefox or Safari browers by clicking on the orange link in the address window. This will give you an option of saving the RSS feed as a link. Once this bookmark is saved, you go to that bookmark in your list and get a drop down list of headlines. This way you quickly see new content and link directly to a story you want to read.
When you recieve an email at an old address, simply click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email. This will remove your old email from the email list. Then come to ArkansasOnline.com and subscribe to breaking news emails by entering your new email address. If the old email address is no longer valid, it will be automatically removed. Just click on the "Get Daily e-mail updates" link on the homepage and enter your new address. Entering a new address through the "Get Daily e-mail updates" link will not change your login information, which must be corrected through the "Change email" page discussed in the previous question. Make sure you add email@example.com to your address book and to your list of allowed mailings to keep your email provider and email program from moving alerts to your Junk or Trash folders.
Scrolling over the page will highlight pieces of the page in blue on a PC. The highlighting is absent on a Macintosh, but the function is the same. Clicking on a piece will bring it up in a preview window; clicking on a headline will bring up the entire article and associated text or images in a display window. Then by clicking in the menu bar, there is choice of views: text (plain text without in a scolling window) or paper (an image of the article and all associated elements as they appear on the newsprint page). Some elements (such as information boxes) related to the story are viewable only in the paper view of the page. In the blue bar near the top of the browser window, date and section pulldowns and a page number box with forward and back arrows allow access to any page in any section in the chosen issue. The red bar at the top of the page offers the choice of Northwest or LR edition. At the left of the browser window are navigation buttons to "Quick Headlines," providing easy access to selected items from the news sections.
ArkanasOnline is continually updated with the latest news from all of our resources. The ePaper is updated daily with content from the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. The ePaper editions are made available online after the newsprint editions go to press. Generally, the LR edition will be available around 4 a.m. The Northwest edition will usually be available by 5:00 a.m., though it may be as early as 4 a.m. All editions should be available by 5:45 a.m.
The easiest way is always to use our search feature at www.arkansasonline.com/search/. Type obituaries and hit the "Search" button for links to every file from the past seven days containing the word obituaries. You can also search for the person's name to quickly locate a particular reference. To search for a phrase, enclose it in quotes: "daily record" or "World Series". In the ePaper, use the search engine in the horizontal navigation bar at the top of the page. It is a "Find" box on Macintoshes, and a "Search" button on PCs.
Arkansas Online provides access to newspaper and online subscribers to stories from the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for 7 days from the original publication. Some selected stories and features are available longer to provide a community service. After 7 days stories are available through our online archives system at library.ardemgaz.com. These articles can be retrieved using our self-serve electronic archives search. There is a small fee per article to download the text. The archives require a separate registration with a credit card number through a secure server connection..
