After having served us very well for over 2 and half years, out little old blogging platform FlatPress has been replaced by Shiny New WordPress install. Its taken me the better part of today to perform the upgrade and its still not 100 percent complete.
I have to customize the theme a bit and create categories and then categorize the existing posts. I have also to add some static Pages namely About, Contact us and Join Us for a start.
With WordPress comes a much more advanced system of managing the website and cutting out all that comment spam that plagued the old site.
Our OtterSpotter blog will continue to operate as it has – http://otterspotter.fol.org.za until I also port it over to WordPress in the near future.
The WordPress platform will also make it easier to collaborate via multiple authors and the comments system
I look forward to taking the Friends web site forward and hope you all enjoy the new look.
