I am excited to announce that the Manchester Press is making some improvements to our website to provide our readers with the best experience possible.

Beginning Thursday, Oct. 15, will begin using a new log-in system. We are working to make this transition as seamless as possible for our readers.

Subscribers will get an email today (and a reminder email in a few days) with a link to activate your online account.

With this change, we will allow non-subscribers to read a few stories for free every month. We encourage you to share links to your favorite stories with friends and family.

We’ve also made some improvements to protect your privacy and payment information. While we have not had any issues, we believe in keeping our security up-to-date.

If you’re already a subscriber, and we have your email address on file, then we’ve already created an account for you. You can use the “forgot password” feature to choose a new password and you will be able to read our articles.

If you run into a problem, reach out to our circulation team at 563-588-5620 or email our website support team at

As always, we welcome your feedback on this change.
