Welcome to our new website, which is finally here, albeit in a not totally finished format. Hopefully you’ll agree it’s a huge improvement and will bear with us while we catch up with all the technical tweaking needed to deliver the site we want, and we hope you’ll find easier to use and more appealing.
The new design is just the beginning. We still need to port the forum to the new format and a new software platform. Not only will this bring the old forum up to date, it will also let all our users loose on the rest of the site, and we look forward to blog contributions and comments from you soon. There’s a techy challenge involved though, so we’ll probably need to get Chocolate Week out of the way first. Please not that while the old forum sits and waits for its upgrade, we’re not accepting new registrations at the moment – we were just getting an uncontrollable amount of spam that the old ‘Snitz’ software just couldn’t handle.
Another big upgrade is bringing the review section – the old ‘Chocopaedia’ – into the new WordPress platform. This is not such a big job, but it’s still going to take some programming effort and data transfer. This is also going to take a little while, but we hope soon to a nice shiney new review section, along with new reviews and new reviewers, and we’ll be recruiting new volunteers in the near future as well.
Please let us know any comments or thoughts about the site, and look out for more changes and improvements hopefully appearing fast and furiously!
