FAQ: Welcome to the refreshed StarTribune

  • Updated: April 5, 2011 - 1:19 AM

Since its creation, the Star Tribune website has continually evolved to keep up with technology, innovations and our users. The changes you see today are the latest step in that progression.

Here’s a guide to some of what’s new:

What’s new on the home page?

The redesigned homepage displays the top stories in every section, offering a menu of the very best the Star Tribune has to offer. 

What sections have changed?

Key sections such as Business, Politics, Entertainment and Opinion have been retooled. We’ve also made Business and Politics easier to find by adding them to the menu bar at the top of every page. Also, Fun+Games has been renamed to Comics+Games and can be found in Entertainment.

What if I want to contact the Star Tribune?

We’ve made it easier to get in touch with us. Whether you want to place an ad, manage your newspaper subscription or contact a reporter with a news tip, there are links at the top and bottom of every page to help. Have something to tell us right now? Go to startribune.com/contactus.

What’s missing?

Faith + Values coverage no longer resides in a separate section. This important coverage now can be found in Lifestyle and Local, as well as in Rose French’s blog, Acts of Faith. Steals+Deals has been dropped as a stand-alone section, but you can find great offers at startribune.com/steals and in John Ewoldt’s DealSpotter blog.
