128 KPA newspapers upload to FTP site

Posted November 18, 2011

Kansas Press Association newspapers continue to join the effort to upload PDFs of pages for use on KPA's public notice website.

The PDFs of all the pages from 128 Kansas newspapers, including 26 of 31 dailies, were being uploaded to the KPA's official FTP site as of Nov. 18.

The newest additions to the site are the Riley Countian and the Fort Leavenworth Lamp.

"Rich Gannon has been plugging away on this for the past seven months, and newspapers are responding," said Doug Anstaett, KPA executive director. "We are phasing this in because we want newspapers to continue to be the primary repositories for public notice well into the future. Having a web site to complement print that is outside the control of government is essential to its independence, reliability and trustfulness."

When you are ready to begin uploading PDFs of your pages to the KPA’s FTP site, see if you can add the new FTP site as a "second recipient" at the same time you are uploading your pages to your printer's FTP site.

If your printer's FTP site doesn't allow for a "second recipient," click here to download a short procedural description for what to do next.

Remember, we're asking you to upload your entire newspaper — not just the pages with public notices on them — so we can eventually do electronic tearsheeting, create a morgue for each individual newspaper's use and also create a source for your newspaper’s Awards of Excellence contest entries.

“We will absolutely not allow access to your PDF pages to the public so they can avoid paying you for an electronic edition,” Anstaett said. “This site will only be available to the company operating our public notice website and to KPA staff for tearsheeting and the news and advertising contests.”

Please contact Richard Gannon at rgannon@kspress.com or 785-271-5304 if you have any questions or concerns about the process or need the codes to use.

Those pages are being scanned for public notices and then uploaded to kansaspublicnotices.com.
