Readers of will notice the website has a new look this morning.

Aiken Standard has revamped its site to make readability and usability much easier. The site introduces a cleaner look that includes larger, more readable headlines, better organized local content and much more.

Regular readers need not worry. Features available on the old site have not been removed, and Aiken Standard has no intention of doing so.

Also, the site features more refined content, more specific content links and better-targeted RSS feeds.

A print replica edition is also still available on the site but with an improved, more flexible look and feel. Not only does it offer a replica of the newspaper in a manner that allows readers to flip through pages, but it also allows readers to zoom in on each page and story. The print replica edition also offers many more features that were not available before. Readers now can customize how they want to view their e-edition and get access to every story in the paper through the new features, as well as access old editions.

The print replica edition will be available to all readers for a limited time and is available through a link on the homepage in the upper, left-hand corner.

We would appreciate your feedback on our improvements. If you have any questions, email Melissa Hanna, multimedia development director, at or call 644-2364.
