Sun-Star launches new Web site

Welcome to the new online home for the Merced Sun-Star.

Sun-Star staff, with developers from McClatchy Interactive, have worked hard over the last few weeks to give readers a better mercedsunstar.com. The site should be easier to navigate, with the main stories appearing in the rotating graphic at the top of the home page. You'll also find links to all your favorite categories in the drop-down menu at the top of every page.

Links to the Sunspot community forum and the Reporters' Notebook blog site can be found under the "blogs" tab.

The Sun-Star is also proud to unveil its community video and photos site. Located at http://videos.mercedsunstar.com, any Sun-Star reader can submit videos and photographs for online publication. This site is also where you'll find the Sun-Star's news and sports videos.

We're aware the site isn't yet perfect and we'll be working hard to iron out the wrinkles. If you're having trouble, please e-mail the Sun-Star at webstaff@mercedsun-star.com.
