new-siteI hope you like this new version of our long-established website. It is based on WordPress, which was originally meant to be a blogging platform but it has developed into a very versatile full-blown Content Management System (CMS).

What’s a CMS? It is designed to simplify the publication of Web content to Websites, allowing content creators to submit content without requiring technical knowledge of HTML or the uploading of files. In simple terms, it means that I do not have to make all the changes to the site’s content myself, as I have done for the past umpteen years.

I have used my technical knowledge to create the design and structure of the new site, but I can now delegate the day-to-day content editing to others who don’t need to be website experts.

Rob Pullen has volunteered to become the Editor-in-Chief, but he would be glad of help from anyone else who fancies creating, submitting or even entering content. I will give training where required, though it is actually very simple – even Trevor could do it!

We haven’t moved all the data across from the old site yet, so you will find some pages empty for a while, but we will be filling them – and creating many more – in the coming weeks. Please call back often, and let us have your ideas for what you’d like to see on the site. One other feature of the new site is that you can leave comments for any of the “posts” (this is a post).
