Well, I’ve finally finished the new website design and incorporated it into WordPress. I do hope you all like it.
Firstly, although our site has been tested for Internet Explorer, it has been designed for Firefox, so if you are using Internet Explorer you won’t see a lot of the design elements I’ve included.
Everything you normally look for is where it normally is. Mostly you are after the latest posts which is always on the Home page. If you ever want to go back to the homepage just click the Home link in the top navigation bar.
Georgie, Elmo, Dora, Minnie & Human bios are all in the top navigation bar as well, although we are now known as ‘About Us’.
If you would like to find a post on a specific date, use the pink filter buttons (Calendar, Recent Posts, Categories, Links). Each filter is self evident, click a day in the calendar to go to that date, click a recent post in recent posts… etc.
If you would like to share a blog post, click the share button (above the post title and on the right of the page), which will open a small menu for you to select which social networking site to share with.
If you would like to comment on a post click the ‘write comment’ button at the very bottom of the post itself to take you to the comment form.
I’ve included links to our various social networking sites in case you’d like to follow us on any of them. This is just above the right sidebar.
To search for posts use the search box on the very top of the right sidebar (hit ENTER on your keyboard to search).
I’ve included our Flickr photo library in the right sidebar, any new pictures in Flickr will show up there, click the thumbnail to get a larger view.
Our 2 latest videos from YouTube are also shown. In the coding I’ve merged both mine and Rev’s videos into one list, and the 2 latest are selected from that list.
I hope no-one has any troubles. There are still a few things I’d like to tweek and get right, but that’s a never ending task.
I would love to hear your thoughts on our site (critisism included!). Click the ‘Feedback’ tab on the right hand side of the page to get in touch!
