Post-Gazette.com Redesign

Thank you for your feedback. We at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette are working to include your experiences and address your questions as our website takes shape. We can’t reply individually to everyone, but we’re grateful for your help.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Keep articles in one piece

    Please stop breaking articles into multiple pages. On a website there's no good reason to break articles into multiple pages - it's not as if the physical paper runs out after a set number of inches like it does in the print edition. It's annoying to have to hop back through 3 or 4 pages instead of one click to get back to the front page.

    • Refine the main page obit box

      "Paid Obituaries" sounds clunky. Why not have an "Obituaries" heading with two options below it: "News Obituaries" with the names of several of the most newsworthy current deaths and a "see all" link, and "Local Death Notices" with as many of the most recent of those as you have room for and a "see all" link for that.

        Clicking on the box title of “Paid Obituaries” on the homepage and on the news page will take you to the legacy site where you can search for obituaries and guest books.

        We’ve added more entry points to the searchable obits/death notices. There is a link at the very top of the page in the black bar, as well as in the local & news submenus (the right hand side of the dropdown box). We’re working to revise the homepage box as well. Thanks.

      • fix the new website (or get rid of it)

        I am a Pittsburgh native who has not lived there in some years. I always check the Post-Gazette sports page, however. Lately, it flashes on and off and is impossible to read. Something is wrong with the new design. I have been forced to read the Tribune-Review's sports page instead.

        • Nix twitter

          The twitter feed isn't necessary because it's not news. It shouldn't be on a newspaper website. Or if you do decide to keep it, change the size and prominent location. Right now, if this were paper, it would be front page, top of the fold. Really?

          • keep the improved use of white space

            I'm not sure why I like it- less crowded feeling, cleaner. More inviting to "browse" even though it requires more mouse and scrolling work. Red time stamps are good- important info for those with OCD checking headlines every two hours for updates on local stories (like the earthquake, or Troy's concussion). PS I am currently on Windows7 Home Premium, with IE9

                • Get rid of NFL.COM ad

                  The NFL.COM flash advertisement seems to auto start playing and at a VERY LOUD volume. Your site is BANNED from my workplace until this stupid junk is removed.

                  • Prominently Display PG Logo

                    Instead of the primary logo being pg.com, display the classic Post-Gazette logo large and proud. Use Boston Globe's or NYTimes's site for an example:

                    http://bostonglobe.com/
                    http://www.nytimes.com/

                    It would give the site a more professional, journalistic feel.

                      I have been on the TV-Radio page for 26 minutes. Where are the listings. This is very hard for elderly to read and find. I am old and your tv schedule was so nice. Why do you have to change a good thing !!!

                        • Make Smizik on Sports available on mobile devices

                          Right now, Smizik on Sports is not able to be loaded on mobile devices, where as the old Community Voices Bob Smizik's Blog is available on mobile devices. There is obviously some incompatibality on mobile web browsers that is preventing this page from loading.

                          Please fix this ASAP. For Bob's readers' sake.

                                  • Home page is too "long"

                                    Shorten the main page so that it gives an overview of all sections, to which i can get more information depending on the headlines. i also liked the breaking news section on the normal page.
