Have your say

The Star’s popular web site gets a brand new improved look today to enhance our paper experience online - check it out and let us know what you think.

About 600,000 people a month already visit and our users view more than a million pages a week.

Now we have given it a great new look, making it even easier to navigate.

All your favourite content will still be available and existing registered users will be able to use their current log-in for commenting.

But you will find three distinct editorial sections, bringing everything together - news, sport and what’s on.

Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham, Doncaster and Chesterfield will have their own news pages, with the addition of Worksop and the High Peak.

Sport, features and columnists will also have a bigger home page profile.

We have extended the moving picture carousel, at the top of the home page, with a mini version on the right of every article page, called Picks of The Day.

There’s also an improved player for our videos with more content coming than ever before.

Our new What’s On section will have direct links to our amazing listings site, where you will be able to find thousands of events happening near you.

In addition, out tweets, offers and services are more prominently displayed.

So too is our contact information, for when you want to get in touch, book an ad, subscribe or buy photos and other things from us, like holidays.

To make sure we’re giving you what you want, please let us know what you think by commenting online at the bottom of this story at
