New website

Postby thebunyans » Wed May 09, 2012 8:35 pm

I've created a leaner, brighter version of the main website.

It is still a "work in progress", but it should be stable enough to use as the main site now. I know a number of links to files are broken, I'll gradually fix those.

Please post any comments/issues with the site here. I have mainly tested the site in Google Chrome as the web browser. I know there are some presentation differences when older versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer are used, and again I'll try and make the site as consistent as possible across the browser variations.

Under the covers the software that the main site runs on is "joomla" and as part of the exercise of creating the new site I've brought the software right up to date (two major software upgrades). This upgrade should mean there is more functionality for the site authors/admins, and you'll see I've included a headline image scroller for pictures. This can display a number of headline images that you can scroll through (hover your mouse over the pictures to see the controls), plus you can "play" them automatically.

Very slick. Can I ask for a photo section to be put in with pictures that aren't ancient? It would help put faces to the regular names that come up all the time who do races.

Just a suggestion.

John I like the look and the photo's really help bring website to life.

Main comment is that the MaccHalf link is now embedded in the road tab where it was on the front page. Could we have a new tab that lists all the races and where the links can be held? I think this would make it more intuitive for visitors to find out info about our races.

Could you also add a link to the 5K website too?

Love the site John. Very bright and slick. Can we have the forum latest posts window back again or something similar. Probably the most used aspect of the old site.

John's updated it Brian. Great stuff. I notice that the "links"tab isn't up. Have simply added one's I use regularly (FRA; Hayfield) to my bookmarks so not an issue.
