The launch of the new KDHNews.com website is the culmination of months of planning and preparation. We at the Killeen Daily Herald wish to welcome our readers to our new site and invite you to dive into the community by registering for a free account.

You can create your new account by clicking on the link in the upper left part of the page. You'll have several options - either connect using Facebook, Google, AOL, Yahoo!, or Open ID. If you'd rather just create a username and password without connecting via one of the social profiles, that's fine, too.

Once you log in, you'll arrive at your dashboard where you can change your account settings, such as your password and edit your public profile. You can even start a blog if you want.

Another benefit of the new KDH community is the ability to contribute news to the website. You'll notice in your dashboard a place to upload articles, photos, YouTube videos, or letters to the Editor. Registered users can also make comments on the site's content. Of course, everything will go into a moderation queue, but the editorial team will work hard to ensure user-generated content is read and approved quickly.

In addition to being able to submit news items to the site, users who own businesses can claim them, those who are celebrating special events can submit announcements, and soon readers will be able to manage their subscriptions directly from their dashboards - but we'll talk more about those features in future posts.

Meanwhile, be sure to read "From the Geek Cube" regularly, as we'll be sharing helpful tips on how to get the most out of the new KDHNews.com website.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Thanks so much for your kind words! As you can see, the new site still has some work to be done, but we're very excited -- especially about the chance to interact with the community!

    First of all, great job! Your site is very user-friendly.Second, thank you so much for not requiring us to use Facebook. I just canceled my account because of increasing concern over privacy, so I'm happy that I can still comment without having to go there.Keep up the good work.
