Mobile Content is King
Tearline employs a "mobile first" and responsive design philosophy so the reporting will travel further in a world of more smartphone and tablet screens than desktops, especially in emerging markets. The web browser version will respond well on any modern smartphone or tablet.
Green Data Links
Readers will notice two types of links within this section: regular blue hyperlinks and green data links. Green data links point to underlying data sets. If you hover over a green data link with your mouse, a pop-up box will show the data type as listed in the "Data Sources" section.
Tracking Changes within the Living Document
Tearline uses a "living document" model to update the public reports. Readers will be able to see when the story was last updated within the long center button, and track revisions by clicking the rewind and forward buttons. Green and red color coding will highlight the changes to the text.
As you scroll up or below the fold, navigation buttons will guide you to the revisions. You can remove the revision formatting by clicking the "Last Major Revision" link within the long center button.
If the buttons are grayed out, this signals to the reader that major changes have not been made to the story. A responsive browser view of fewer than 767 pixels in width (average tablet portrait width) will not serve out the revision buttons. If the buttons are visible, test it now. Hit the rewind button several times then move the story forward for the best experience reading the changes.
