The upcoming launch of the Roswell Daily Record’s new and improved e-Newspaper (also called the “digital replica” edition) is aimed at providing RDR subscribers with an expanded and enhanced online reading experience.

In addition to a number of upgraded features, there will changes to the site’s online payment processing system.

Some users may have noticed that their pre-authorized recurring PayPal payments have been canceled in preparation for the new system.

All current subscribers will be active until their renewal date, at which time subscribers will be prompted to renew or change subscription types to continue accessing the e-Newspaper and regular website with the new payment system.

Active subscribers will be required to log in with their email address and password.

Some of the passwords may not transfer over correctly, at which time the subscriber will be prompted to request a new password using the email associated with their online account.

Another change is elimination of the Social Locker system that has been in place on the site, which will be replaced by a metered paywall. The metered paywall offers a “try before you buy” system, allowing readers to view three articles per week before being prompted to subscribe.

The new e-Newspaper is expected to launch in July. RDR readers can now test out a demo version of the new features on the rdrnews.com website to familiarize themselves with the improved layout and tools. Visit rdrnews.com and hover over e-Newspaper for a drop-down menu, then click Test New e-Newspaper. The Roswell Daily Record will also release an e-Newspaper App that can be downloaded for free from both the Apple and Google Play stores in conjunction with the formal launch of the new e-Newspaper.
