Hardlinks made easy, the digital first way

As we evolve toward our goal of truly being digital first journalists, our set of skills changes and grows.

It is clear that “hardlinking” a story from our website directly to another site, such as a blog, is an important service to our readers. Such a link provides the reader direct access to the other site.
