As we continue our transition to the Better Newspapers family, the Daily Journal unveiled its new website online yesterday morning. It can be found at the same web address as before — https://dailyjournalonline.com/.
While we would love it if the website was up and running perfectly, it simply isn’t there yet. At this very moment, more than 20 years’ worth of archives are in the process of being uploaded to the new website. Because of this, for a number of days, there will be occasional glitches experienced by our website users.
Still, we would rather offer our readers limited use of the website contents now than go completely dark until the massive upload of data has been completed. This is a trade-off that is simply unavoidable but better than the alternative.
Once the new website has fully transitioned, our readers will be able to find the latest news from the Daily Journal, Farmington Press and Democrat News, as well as search our archived stories and photos from the past with ease.
Current E-editions of the Daily Journal and Democrat News are accessible now for viewing on the website. The Farmington Press E-edition will be available beginning with the Aug. 2 issue.
Our latest stories will be uploaded to the website and available for viewing by 9 a.m., Monday through Saturday.
Note that while the Daily Journal iPhone and Android apps are no longer operational, the website can be easily accessed using any mobile or computer browser of your choosing to keep up with the latest local news wherever internet access is available.
Along with our new website, Better Newspapers is announcing more affordable subscription rates for Daily Journal and Democrat News readers.
Subscription rates for the Daily Journal are:
- 1 month – $28
- 13 weeks – $65
- 26 weeks – $120
- 1 year – $170
- Saturday only – $35 for 13 weeks
- E-Edition-only – $10.99 a month
- An annual subscription to the Democrat News is $78.
- The E-edition is included with all subscriptions at no additional cost.
With this announcement of our new website and lower subscription rates, the Daily Journal is taking another step in better serving our readership throughout the southeast Missouri region.
