We have news. Big, beautiful news: L.A. Weekly has a brand new beta website, and not only is it easy on the eyes, but it's specifically designed for you, the reader. Your experience on the site is important to us, so we didn't rest until we had created a website that was both simple to navigate and fun to read. Now it's here, and it's perfect! Or, nearly perfect. In fact, we want you to tell us what you think so that we can keep improving it before it's fully live. More on that later.
First, here's a look at the major upgrades we've made:
No more “mobile version” of the site. It now knows what device you're using and will automatically adjust to give you the best experience possible on a desktop, tablet or smartphone.
No more pagination
Were you tired of clicking? We were, so we made pagination a thing of the past. Now all of the articles you read on our site — even the longform stuff — will come in one long page. Just scroll down.
Easy access to videos and slideshows
We have lots of video and slideshow content on our website, and now it's much easier to find. Look for it on our homepage, as well as on the news, music, food & drink and arts pages. Slideshows and video also have their own landing pages, so you can find all our great visual content there as well.
Your interests matter to us, so we've designed our website to use them to suggest additional content you might like to read. Take a look to the left on any given article page and you'll find a selection of related stories, videos and slideshows that are likely to pique your interest, all based on the story you're currently reading.
We want your feedback!
Tell us what you like, what you don't like, what you think could be changed, and/or anything we could do to make your experience better. Let us know what you think using the red “Feedback” button at the right of the new site.
Happy reading, and thank you.
