The official website of the White House provides news, press briefings and an overview of live events, including celebrations, state dinners and joint press conferences. The website also includes an archive of weekly addresses, remarks and speeches from the president or the first lady, along with the White House schedule.
As of 2015, the main navigation bar on the WhiteHouse.gov home page includes categories that cover news, issues, an overview of the people in the administration, and ways to participate in White House activities. It also includes a section that provides information about the history of the White House, interactive tours, and explanations of how the U.S. government is structured.
The website presents the Latest News section in the form of a blog that displays links to top stories and provides articles ordered by the date of their release. The photo gallery features slideshows that users can filter by category, while the video gallery provides links to YouTube videos that users can watch on the website or download to their computers. The Issues section includes the latest State of the Union and information about political issues such as the economy, health care and foreign policy. The bottom section of the home page includes links to all categories and subcategories, allowing users to access the desired information without using the drop-down menus on the main navigation bar.
