Hi all,

Just a quick update, 

We've made a lot of progress on the new site over the last few weeks. I would hope that we would be going into beta testing with it certainly before Christmas. 

The new site is faster, easier to use, and can be accessed on mobile/tablets etc.

Bear with us.....

Looking forward to the improvements, Craig and thanks for keeping us up to date on the work.

Wonderful news........it should be a huge improvement and hopefully it will target some new members and bring back the ones who have gone. Thanks Craig for the updates!

That's the best news I've heard in a really long time. Thanks, Craig.

Great news looking forward to it

Thanks,Craig. Maybe they should feature it in the magazine to try to attract people back.

Great news and looking forward to it.  I agree with Fraoch about highlighting it in the magazine. Thanks Craig.

Good luck with the Beta testing! If you need "real" members to help with the testing just ask :-)

CraigK CraigK 08 November 2017 15:28:24

Funny you should say that Hazel, closer to the time we MAY need some beta testers. I'll put a post up at the time.

Jackie Jackie 08 November 2017 19:29:58

Oooooh excellent......just let us know and I am sure you will have lots of takers! Sounds very exciting!

Oh Craig I owe you an apology - I have just tried to upload an album and got very cross that it still isn't working! I'll be so glad when it's all up and running again. :)

Hi Craig, when the new site is up and running will our previous journals still be available? I would hate to lose those as they are a record of how our, well definitely mine, gardens have evolved over the years. If they were to disappear, would it be possible to have a copy of those journals beforehand? I don't mind if there was a small charge to do that but I would love to be able to hold on to them. Thanks

Hi Jackie

I'm not sure about that question. What I'd suggest now is that you start saving copies to your computer or device, by either copying and pasting, print screening or printing as a pdf, depending on your needs. 

TheH (Hazel) TheH (Hazel) 14 November 2017 18:03:36

Oh Dear Craig! That is a very big task for people who have been on the site for many years and posting regularly! Each journal has to be copied separately so that the comments are included - this is often the most valuable part of the Journal. Would it not be possible to keep the existing information accessible as an archive when the new site comes onstream? I have been on the site since 2009 but there are many members who joined before me!

Jackie Jackie 14 November 2017 18:32:53

It would be such a shame to lose them. They are a great source of information to everyonenit just the person who wrote the journal. It’s what the site is all about. Our blogs so to speak!! If it disappears I will be gutted. I do remember Gerry saying these journals are stored. Surely there must be a way to get some form of copy from the site.
