How to use the website
Articles are grouped together to help readers access the information they want. The main breaking news/opinion of the day will feature in the top section and cascades into the lower news, analysis and topic boxes as new information is loaded to the site.
The categories are chosen to reflect major topics of interest, such as Appointments, Arts & Lifestyle, Media, Money and Property. Many of these can be accessed from the Main Menu below the titlepiece. Clicking on the coloured category icons will pull up all stories in that category. Double clicking on the Daily Business titlepiece will refresh the page.
Some items, such as Consumer, Enterprise, Property and Scotland news, are sub-categorised. In the main menu click on the main item to find the drop down list of sub-categories.
Daily Business welcomes comments from readers on any subject. Each item has a comment section and, in common with most news websites, these comments are moderated before publication. Comments also appear on social media sites and are beyond the control or responsibility of Daily Business.
Daily Business welcomes comments about the site or other services including suggestions for change or new features. Please address any comments to the Editor.
