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.
