HERE’S THE SCENARIO: You’ve finished Page 1. All stories, photos and other design elements are in place. Everything’s done, including making sure your longer stories carry over to your jump page.
Everything is finished.
Then comes a late-breaking story. A downtown landmark is burning to the ground and other stores and businesses are threatened.
You hustle out and get the story—and some great photos. You run back to the office, tear the front page apart and move some stories around to make room for the fire package. And you hold that feature on the new pastor at First United Church.
So, you’ve got a super front page.
Problem is, when you held that feature on the pastor, you forgot to kill the jump on page 12.
Yes, it happens.
So…when you begin moving items around on the front, always keep the jump page in mind.
