Life is simpler

The old site was hand crafted using Macromedia Dreamweaver 8. This was easy for me but proved a bit of a problem for Rob. Besides not being a programmer Rob would need his own copy of Dreamweaver or Contribute to work on the site. We did have a copy of Dreamweaver that Rob could use, provided as part of the Package from 1and1, but he’d need training. Training never happened, either or both of us were always not available.
So, what to do? Well, we could have plodded on and not got anywhere or tried another approach.

That approach turned out to be to use WordPress 3.0.

    Hi Kevin It’s Dawn, Ronnie’s daughter I’m just wondering where the old photos went that were on the old site? Are you planning on moving them across onto this one?

      Hi Dawn
      Its Robbie here.
      I have a stack of photo’s to load up on the site along with some stories, just time stopping my progress they are uploaded, but not released as yet, I will try to get the pages done over the next few days. Also working on some remixes of some of the old stuff and Doug has written a song to Ron’s memory, he was quite deeply upset as were we all, but we havent finished that either yet. I’ll email a rough mix when we get there.

    Hi Dawn, there’s big plans to move everything over (and to add more). It’s time that’s holding things up though.
    If there’s anything specific you want, let me know and I’ll email them directly to you. (At the address you gave when you registered).
    If there’s anything specific you want including on the site, I’m happy to do that too.

    No nothing in particular, just having one of those weeks (it was his 60th yesterday)where I wanted to look at the old pics and they were gone!!

    It’s quite embarrassing that I didn’t know it was his birthday.
    Anyway, I’ve emailed you some photos. I have lots more (I nearly always had a camera with me) but they need to be scanned.
    There’s probably some more knocking around that I can send you (but I’m supposed to be working!)
