What is this site?
This is the html-based website of Shanghai Daily, the city’s only English language daily newspaper. Shanghai Daily owns the site and its online department is in charge of its operation. Shanghai Daily has just upgraded the site to present you with a brand new www.shanghaidaily.com starting August 1, 2013. The new site features more selected news stories, a friendlier user interface, bigger pictures, a highlighted business channel called BizHub and more.
What's the difference between the site and the newspaper?
Most stories published in the print copy are also available online. Advertisements, cartoons, puzzles, horoscopes, and some advertorials are not included on the site.
In addition to the newspaper version of stories, ShanghaiDaily.com also publishes online version of news stories based on reports from Chinese newspapers, wire services, radio, TV and major news or government websites as well as breaking news provided by Shanghai Daily reporters. They may or may not appear in the newspaper published the next day.
When will the newspaper stories appear on the site?
Shanghai Daily's online department will upload stories for the next day's newspaper in real time as each page is approved in the newsroom. In most cases, all newspaper edition stories will be on the site no later than 3am Beijing Time.
To ensure a timely display of newspaper stories online, the night shift staff will upload only some of the pictures suitable for the website. Other pictures will be uploaded later in the morning.
Is this site totally free?
Like most newspaper websites around the world, ShanghaiDaily.com is a partly fee-based website. Non-subscribers will be able to read the full text of 10 news stories a week. The site offers three subscription choices, including print plus all digital access, as well as standard and premium digital subscriptions to meet different demands.
What is PDF file download?
Shanghai Daily updates PDF files in real time as each day's newspaper is being produced in the newsroom.
With these PDF format files, you will be able to print out every Shanghai Daily page on your computer. To view a PDF file, you should be a subscriber and you will need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer.
