New Feature for Subscribers

We have a new feature for subscribers. Up until now, subscribers could read the current issue when they logged into their account.

Sample of new feature for subscribers.

Today, we improved this feature so that subscribers can read other issues of their subscription too.

When subscribers go to read the current issue online, they will also see thumbnail covers of other issues from their subscription below the current issue.

Click on any cover, and that issue will appear in the reader above the thumbnail covers.

New Feature Details

How many issues you can read depends on when your subscription started. If your subscription started in 2017 or earlier, you will be able to read the 2017 issues of your subscription through the current issue.

If your subscription covers more than one year, you’ll see the thumbnail covers of the issues from the same year as the issue you are reading. For example, if you are reading the September 19, 2020 issue, issue 308, the thumbnail covers will be the covers of your 2020 issues. If you are reading an issue from 2019, the thumbnail covers will be the covers of your 2019 issues.

If your subscription covers more than one year, you will see links to your other years. For example, the links to the other years could look something like this:

Read your 2017 issues | Read your 2018 issues | Read your 2019 issues

Select a year, and the 1st issue of your subscription for that year will appear in the reader. The cover thumbnails for that year will appear below the reader.

For this new feature, we made all the 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 issues available to read online for subscribers. So depending on when your subscription started, you can read all of these issues online.

We will be adding the 2016, 2015, and 2014 issues soon. When we finish that, those who subscribed from the beginning will be able to read all the Dad’s Bedtime Tales Newsletters online.

Adding more issue to your subscription

So what can you do if you subscribed recently and would like to pick up earlier subscriptions? Purchase a six month subscription, and let us know that you would like to add the six months to the front of your subscription. We will roll back the beginning of your subscription by six months. After we do that, when you go to read your issues online, you’ll see the covers for those earlier issues.
