“Registration required” – needed once again

This came up during our annual correspondents’ meeting in Istanbul. For years we’ve had the ability to tag news stories as coming from sources that require users to register. For a time, this proved to be unnecessary as most websites were opening up to users without any barriers. But with the increasing use of paywalls – by, for example, the Murdoch papers – increasingly we need to warn readers that if they click on a link, they may be required to register to read the rest of the article. This feature, which worked in an earlier version of LabourStart, has now been restored.
