Forum and registering

I have noticed that a good number of people have registered for the new forum and site, which is great. There is also a growing number of people for whom registration has not been completed. I did have an issue with registration, password reset and recovery which I fixed with the help of one member, so if you are one of the people still trying to register, please first try the Lost Password link and see if that now works for you.

Thanks, Howard

Here’s your new site

Welcome, one and all! Please have a browse around, search out any bugs, register for the new forum and get posting 🙂

I’m sorry that its taken a little later than I promised, but finally we’re running on the correct domain. I’ve learnt a lot along the way, and if I were to do it all again at least I now know how to do it quicker.

Cheers,
Howard.

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.
