Buying a Subscription
The Idaho Press offers both print delivery and digital subscription options. All print subscriptions also grant you full access to our digital products, which include the website and e-edition, which is digital replica of the printed paper.
Please see our subscriptions page for up-to-date prices and links to our signup forms.
To get started with your digital subscription, you'll need to have an account on idahopress.com. This account at idahopress.com is your key to your paywall-free access to the Idaho Press website, the daily e-edition, the ability to place items on our local events calendar and the ability to comment on stories.
- If you don't have a website account already, you can create one here
- If you have an account and can't remember your password, try our password reset form.
Note: It's possible that our subscription representative will set up this account for you if you don't have one already. If that's the case, you'll receive an email with your username and password.
Accessing the Website
In order to access our website with your subscription (and without having to answer survey questions to read stories) you'll need to be logged in with your subscriber account.
How to log in
Because our site's layout adjusts depending on the size of your screen, you may find the login buttons in slightly different places.
On our desktop- and laptop-sized site, you'll find the login icon in right corner of the menu bar on any page.
On a smartphone or tablet, first hit the menu button in the top left corner of the black bar at the top of the screen to bring out the mobile navigation menu. (It looks like stacked horizontal lines.)
When the menu slides out, choose the login button from near the top of the screen.
If you can't remember your password, try our password reset form.
How to Log Out
Simply look to where the login buttons were located. If you're logged in currently, they will say "log out" instead.
Accessing the E-edition
The e-edition is the online replica of the printed paper. It's available six days a week, just like print, though it's published online each night as soon as our designers are finished with the paper, no waiting for delivery!
Where's the e-edition?
As with the login button, depending on the size of your screen, you may find the e-edition links in slightly different places.
On our desktop- and laptop-sized site, you'll find the e-edition link on the right side of the menu bar at the top of any page.
On a smartphone or tablet, first hit the menu button in the top right corner of the black bar at the top of the screen to bring out the mobile navigation menu. (It looks like stacked horizontal lines.)
When the menu slides out, the link for the e-edition will be located near the bottom of the menu.
Alternatively, you can simply navigate straight to idahopress.com/eedition.
E-Edition Index Page
The links discussed in the previous section will take you to our e-edition index page, where you can select an edition of the paper to read or search the archived e-editions.
At this time, the e-edition only archives the past 30 days worth of issues. For older local content, please search the website from the search form at the top of any page.
On the index page, you'll also be able to find the most recent e-edition versions of our weekly newspapers and our Lazy Sunday puzzle/comics section as well as various special sections.
Using the e-edition
Once you have selected an edition to read, click on its title to enter it. You'll know you're looking at an e-edition page when you see the red-orange bar appear at the top of your screen. (That's your visual indication you're reading an e-edition page.)
This is what a typical e-edition page will look like (on a larger screen). Here's how the parts of the e-edition work:
- The menu button brings out a slide-out menu with options to choose a different edition of the Idaho Press or to even download a PDF copy of a single page or whole e-edition. There are also a few display options in this menu.
- The previous and next navigation buttons do just what you might suppose: They'll take you to the next or previous page in the edition you're currently reading.
- The reading area will show the page you are currently on. You can double click with a mouse to zoom in on different portions of the page. On a touchscreen device, you can pinch-zoom to magnify the words. (Swiping hard to the left or right will also behave like the previous/next buttons.)
- The page navigation thumbnails will allow you to jump quickly to another page in the edition.
Manage your subscription
The Idaho Press uses a separate service to manage your subscription called iServices. You can access it via the "Manage your subscription" link in the top navbar on any page (or on the slide-out menu on the mobile version of the site).
With iServices, you can:
- Start a new print subscription
- Change your subscription plan
- Put your subscription on hold while you're away
- Pay your subscription
- Give your carrier tips or donations
- Offer feedback on delivery
Unfortunately, at this time iServices does not work with your regular website username and password. You will need to create a separate login for iServices.
Register for iServices
To register for iServices, first go here to the iServices registration page. You will need several pieces of information to get your account created.
Two of the following:
- The phone number you listed with us
- Your last name
- Your subscription account number
To report problems with the e-edition or the website, please use the website trouble report form. There is a link to this form in the dark-colored footer at the bottom of every page on our site.
