A new look for NWHerald.com

A redesigned NWHerald.com launched Tuesday, providing readers with a better user experience on their desktop, smartphone or tablet.

Still with an emphasis on local news, the new NWHerald.com helps readers find the news that's important to them with better visual cues. The website's responsive design ensures that readers will see the same important stories and headlines regardless of the device they are using to visit NWHerald.com.

The website still features more local news, photography and videography about McHenry County than any other website. Users still sign in online in the upper righthand corner of the site for complete access to the NWHerald.com archives.

Navigation across the top of the homepage has been improved to better guide readers through the website, and story pages now include more opportunities for readers to access the top news on NWHerald.com without having to hit the back button.
