We’re also unveiling another months-in-the-making upgrade to PublishersMarketplace.com and Publishers Lunch today. The Publishers Lunch news page and archive has left behind the 10-year-old platform we’ve been working with and moved to WordPress, with a new design and a number of new features.
For now the change in your daily mail is simple: click any headline and it will take you to the site-based permalink, where we welcome your comments. Also, readers are so accustomed to getting Lunch by e-mail that they often didn’t know how to find the story links to share via blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc. In the old scheme, stories for our “free” readers were not archived at all. But now, every story will display at least a free “snippet.” Those stories that we publish to our free readers will also remain on the site as open, permalinked stories.
Some other niceties we hope you will enjoy:
– We have a snappy new design, and it’s easier to scan all the day’s news in a single page.
– The biggest news categories now have quick-click tabs at the top. So it’s easy to find people news and stories on digital developments, earnings and statistics, bookstores, new books, and the archived Lunch Weekly mails.
– Our curated Automat “highlights” appear on the main Lunch page, too, making it a more comprehensive one-stop news spot
– Remember that Lunch news is posted to the site first, and archived there as well, so keep your eyes on it all the time. For the many readers who use RSS to stay on top of our latest postings, please updated your Lunch Deluxe feed to:
