Just a short blog to keep everyone up to date with the Forum and website progress as both are ongoing projects that need to be sorted, one the "Forum" is for us the members to discuss matters and birding etc. and the other the "Website" for the CCG if ever we need funding /charitable status issues etc so I think both are important for the Group to have and kept updated so we look a professional body.
I am not the best at these things so any help on web content is always welcome and for anyone who doesn't know the web address or has seen it yet there is a link button on the "Forum".
A lot of the updates to the forum have been very minor as I get to grips with all the technical stuff involved with codes and the like and permissions as to what members can do and what guests can and can't do.
I have added a couple of new smilies thumbs up being one that a lot of the group used in the previous forum and thought would like it back on this one. Anyone have a favourite thats not here let me know and I will see if I can get hold of it.
I have added a couple of direct links to the Forum page one being the Guided Walks and the other being CCG Website so members and guests can access direct from the forum.
The "Guided Walks " link is purely at a trial stage and thought I would see if an online booking system would work ready for April when the public turn up in the hundreds for a tour of the coast. If anyone has any thoughts on this can they let me know publicly or PM as I would appreciate input from the group, do you think it will/won't work.
There is also a Map button on the page and this takes members/guests to google maps and as you will see I have added a few of the regular spots frequented by birders and if you have a location you think might benefit the sight let me know and I will add it also.
Now only three weeks old the site is regularly getting 70 visitors a day reading some 600-700 pages of the forum a day which is tremendous news so thanks everyone for the support.
Members are still joining and we are now up to 24 with our latest member Edward joining today. Along with the members visiting we are also getting a lot of guests viewing the site which is an added bonus so I think word is getting out about the Forum so lets hope it continues.
Enjoy the posts/posting
