Website refresh

If you’re reading this post then you are seeing the refreshed Hughenden Valley Residents Association website. The old one was starting to look a little tired, and there was some unnecessary technical complexity behind the scenes. The refreshed site has a clean, fresh new look and feel that I hope you like; all of the existing content is here (except for some older material which has been tidied away), and there are some (hopefully) useful new features.

All the News from the Association and some other village organisations is on the News page as before, and now includes any items related to Planning and HS2, which used to have their own pages. Remember that you can search for News, or access the archives by Category or Month. Remember too, that you can sign up to receive all News by email, so that you don’t miss anything. A new feature is that you can now share News stories with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or Google+ – just click on the buttons. If you have a News item that you would like to contribute, please send it to the Secretary or Webmaster.

The Calendar is now a fully functioning Google Calendar embedded in the website, so you can change between weekly, monthly and list views. If you have an event that you would like included in this Calendar, please send details to the Secretary. The next five upcoming events are also listed on the Home page.

The Links page is unchanged; if you have a new link that you think would be useful, or an update to an existing one, please email details to the Webmaster.

The official documents of the Association are now on a Documents page, including the Constitution, AGM minutes, and Executive Committee meeting minutes.

Behind the scenes, the site is now hosted at WordPress.com, which means that technical things like security, backups, keeping the underlying software up to date etc. are all taken care of by one of the largest and best companies for website of this kind. It’s also easier to use for editors, and we get better usage statistics.

All comments and suggestions to the Webmaster welcome.
