Updated tablet and mobile versions of the home page.
Updated blogging system.
Contacts pages for Desktop and Tablet redesigned.
New Solution for Calendar problem. Can swap between two versions to show the relevant September. In the present case September 2018 and the September 2019.
SEO - Search Engine Optimisation
Tinkering under the hood. Improved page load speeds. Mobile getting 90/100 - which is excellent. Desktop - for first time - getting score of 100/100.
Redesigning the look of the website. Still to complete this.
Changed fonts on all pages.
Changed home page to make it easier to access Calendar.
Now, only a small section of the home page needs to be converted to CMS - bottom menu items. The website content can now be updated by members that are able to use a text editor. The content can be updated on a phone, tablet or desktop computer from any place in the world!
Mobile phone - landscape view
I have disabled the use of viewing our website in landscape when using a mobile phone. The landscape phone experience was poor. I may come back to this when I have much more time to concentrate on this aspect.
Updated footer icons - changed from FontAwesome to SVG files that I created. This gives a page speed boost. (23rd June 2019). All of the content of the footer can now be updated via the CMS.
Using different devices
Viewing the website on a phone will be a different experience from viewing it on a desktop or tablet computer. You may see different images, and different content. For example, there will be more content on the desktop computer for the history page.
I have created a range of SVG icons and more will be added when time allows.
Why change the existing icons?
1 SVGs will look sharp on any device.
2 They are usually small is size. The page loads faster.
3 The Font Awesome icons require HTML code - whilst I or other Council memebers, can use markdown to insert SVGs into new content.
SEO Technical note:
Only for real web geeks.
Canonical urls added to all main pages! This is not for mortals to see any effect. It is to help Google understand our blog page. For D - this is an example of under-the-hood changes!
