    Website Version 2.1

    A few weeks ago (in February) we started the process of switching over to a new hosting service. While some of the processes are quick – such as signing up, paying fees, and setting up the website – others take quite a bit longer. That meant running two websites in parallel for some time. Once certain configuration details are settled, the new website will appear at the old address. Users would not ordinarily be aware of any changes, but in this case there are several. One change is in the contents of the new website. The old website will be missing some recent posts, including this one. Vice versa, there…

    Website Version 2.0

    Welcome to the new look website! It is getting a thorough overhaul after a year or more of neglect. The previous website was missing crucial functions like a messageboard and a subscription feature, was laboriously hand-coded (by me) and was never easy to update.

    A WordPress plugin called Postie facilitates the conversion of email to blogposts (described here in some detail), which means that someone sending a message to a special address will have their message show up here on the website as a blogpost. This message is an example of that feature. For now, it will be used for making announcements about meetings, events, and topics of interest, but I hope to extend the use to subscribers, in order to make it easier for members of Highbury Park Friends to share information about the park.

Given that the website is a very good medium for people to share information, the lack of ease has been a major obstacle to publishing contributions from visitors. The new setup takes a very big step towards making such contributions easy and towards ease of managing the website. The most sweeping change has been in the structure of the website. Where the previous version was made of individually-coded static pages, the…
