The ''New'' Site
Posted on Sunday, January 18 @ 20:18:15 PST by Fido

Welcome Back! It's been quite a busy weekend for LWD. If you're reading this post, your DNS server has received our update and you are looking at the new LWD! There is still a great deal of work to be done though, as you will soon notice. Below is a brief run-down of what has been completed so far, and what still needs to be done.
BETA theme / layout design of site
Content infrastructure created
Blocks / Modules configured
Main News content from old site has been imported
DNS Upated

To Do:
Add recent forum activity block
Import SETI Team news
Import Articles
Import Reviews
Update WebLinks content
Update Downloads content
Create "other missing pages" such as Store, About, Contact, etc.
Tweak / Revise theme
As you can tell, there's quite a lot still missing from the site. I've tried to make the trasition as smooth as possible, but when you have a site that has been online for over 4 years, moving and redesigning the whole thing is a lot of work. I'm hoping to have the majority of the items on my "To Do" list completed tomorrow. In the mean-time, feel free to browse around, create an account if you'd like (accounts that exist in our forum will not work on this site), and maybe even submit a few news items to us. If you do notice anything strange going on with the site, aside from missing content, please let me know by using the feedback link on the upper-left-hand side of the site.



Don't have an account yet? You can create one. As a registered user you have some advantages like theme manager, comments configuration and post comments with your name.

I'm not a fan of the font change for the text. The old font was easier to read.

I definitely love the new "digs". What a great job and a lot of great choices you made Fido.
/me hopes to resume contributing news on a regular basis. Can I save a preference for HTML Formatted?
