Why the new website?

Hopefully, you can see that the new website is an improvement in some ways over the previous Velo Vision site. Various factors were influencing me when I was considering how to work with and manage now old Velo Vision site.

  • The WordPress platform used here is much more flexible and responsive in terms of viewing on different devices and I think this is increasingly important as more and more people use mobile devices for their browsing.
  • The forum on the old site is no longer supported by Phorum, and we needed to find a solution to the persistent post truncation bug.
  • I also wanted to create a site that was more easily updated and on which I could link in the social media that some people find important.
  • The shop too is more flexible and I can more easily add digital content including things for free download which may be a nice feature for contributors who want lots of high resolution files or media that is too large to email.

I hope you will agree that look and feel of the new site is intuitive while being loosely based on the previous menu structure.

If you have any ideas or find any problems with the site, please post them in the Forum or contact me directly.

Many thanks to Velo Vision readers

I have to admit that working through the development of this website and grappling with the administration needed for Velo Vision has been tough. Which is why I am so grateful for the  number of messages of goodwill that have been coming in from the readership, contributors, cycle dealers, makers and distributors. The encouragement really has helped me through.

It is great to hear personally that the magazine has a strong following of enthusiasts and supporters.  Your help now is even more important than ever, so anyone who has an idea for an article that they would like to see in print please step forward!  Also, I will be drafting the survey in the next few weeks and will be reading your suggestions with great interest.  Exciting times ahead for Velo Vision 🙂

Thanks again,
Howard.

A week to go…

Only a week until the new Velo Vision website is officially for public viewing.  Whether I manage to get it online, running from the velovision.com domain on time remains to be seen!

At times it has felt like I’m getting a little bogged down, but if you’re reading this and most of the site looks presentable then it may have been worth it.
Please do add your views on the site and its content below, or contact me directly. If you need some particular Velo Vision content reinstating, I will try to bring it back for you.

Cheers,
Howard!
