We understand that navigating websites can sometimes be a confusing and frustrating experience. This page is an attempt to provide some simple steps that you can do on your own to resolve some of the most common issues experienced with our online products.
Step 1 – Determine your subscription type
The Gazette offers several different subscription types. Some come with access to different digital products. To find out which subscription type you have, please open this link: https://myaccount.thegazette.com
If you get an error message saying your password is invalid, you may need to reset your password. Click the “Forgot your Password?” link on the box that pops up (see image below).
If you have a Print subscription or our Complete Digital, you have full access to all of our digital products. This includes thegazette.com and the Green Gazette, which is a digital edition of the print paper.
If your subscription is called “Gazette.com Access” you only have access to thegazette.com.
You can access the Digital Edition of the printed paper by clicking here or on the “Green Gazette” link at the bottom of thegazette.com.
Step 2 – Logging into TheGazette.com
The same username and password you used to determine your subscription type should work to allow you to access thegazette.com. Use the link in the upper right-hand part of your screen.
Or, if you have hit our paywall, click the “Login” link or button. Enter your username/password. Once you log in, you will have access to all the articles on thegazette.com.
The same username and password you used to determine your subscription type should work to allow you to access the Green Gazette if it is part of your subscription. Use the link at the bottom of thegazette.com to go to the Green Gazette and sign in. It is also linked in a button at the top of the page called “Digital Edition“.
Step 3 – Solving login issues
