We have modernized the web site www.dnevnik.si, which is among the most frequently visited Slovenian online information portals. Since 10 December 2016, the daily Dnevnik has brought to its users fresh and up-to-date news from the world of politics, economy, sport, culture, entertainment and spare time, in a responsive mode. Responsive Web Design is an approach to web design that adapts to the device we use. In practice this means that we can have one web site which can be accessed from different devices and browsers. Yet, its content remains the same and is prepared optimally to be used on our device.
We have also renewed their paywall system or the subscription system. Unsubscribed readers can read four articles in full per month, while the rest of the information is available to them to a limited extent. They can ensure access through one of the attractive subscriber packages that are available here.
Web site Dnevnik.si has been written by means of the ASP.NET MVC framework. It is set up on the Microsoft Azure cloud service. The data search is made through the Solr platform, and the data is saved on the MS SQL server.
We believe that the new features will allow the Dnevnik team to do an even more quality work involving collection, interpretation, creation and communication of relevant news, information, analyses, opinion as well as fun content that bring added value to the general public, business community, subscribers and advertisers. And we can only wish them all the best in doing this.
