The new MinnPost

Learn about our redesigned site and let us know what you think.

Welcome to MinnPost’s new website. We’re excited to share it and to hear what our readers think.

A few of the new features we are particularly excited about:

  • Articles now have related stories and “More Like This” to help you find stories that interest you
  • You can visit section pages, like Politics & Policy, to see more from our most popular topics. You can also subscribe to these sections.
  • It’s easier than ever to find stories from your favorite authors — just click on their name to see their bio page and a list of all articles they’ve written
  • You’ll find department pages, like our Data & Maps hub, and topic pages, like our collection of articles about the marriage amendment
  • Quickly find your favorite department on our Columns page
  • The site is built to be responsive, which means it will adjust to your tablets and mobile devices for easier reading and navigation.

We’re still working on a number of features that we’ll be rolling out over the next few months, including breadcrumbs, which will tell you where you are and how you got there; a “most viewed” module; expanded commenting options; and more. That’s one of the great things about being on an open source system — the progress never stops. You may also notice that comments from the last two weeks have not been migrated to the new site yet; it’s on our to-do list.

Of course none of this would have been possible without the hard work of many dedicated people. The MinnPost team has been working tirelessly over the last few weeks to get everything ready. The beautiful new logo is thanks to web editor/creative director Corey Anderson. Drew, Lynn, Ronan, Denise, Erika and the rest of the team at Gorton Studios built, designed, tested and launched the site. They have donated many hours to the cause beyond what we paid for, and we are thrilled to have them as a partner. The crew at Clockwork — with special thanks to Meghan and Whitney — has helped get us through the transition with ease. They have been a wonderful partner to us over the past four years, and we can’t overstate how deeply thankful we are for Clockwork’s role in our success.

We’re also grateful for the support of our members and donors. Without you, none of this would be possible. If you’d like to help us fund continued development and innovation, please support our mission by becoming a sustaining member.
