Introducing the new CacheWalker.co.uk website
« on: January 04, 2013, 12:47:13 pm »
Click to visit CacheWalker's new website

By website I don't mean forum - I mean the cachewalker.co.uk website which was long in need of renovation  :D

Mel will redirect the .co.uk domain to it in due course, but it is available to view now under its hosting domain.

It features a simplified look, a latest news feature, Map of walks, and Galleries. Furthermore, it has the start of what will be full integration with the forum, unlike the old site, and is socially plugged in with Cotswold Caching and its Twitter and Facebook feeds. More will be added to the site as time goes on.

Please let me know what you think, and what you want added  :) I still like to think of this forum as our main home though  ;D

No need  ;D It will soon be CacheWalker.co.uk, so all the links elsewhere will take you to the new site anyway - just not yet, Mel hasn't got round to switching it over at present. But she will soon, so don't bother changing them  :)

I can't really compare to the old site as I haven't really looked around that one, but I like the clean clear easy to navigate around feel of the new site. Spotted the Cotswold Caching link too, thank you :)

Presume that will include the Sidetracked links for the Sidetracked caches?
All those Sidetracked caches out there, with links on the cache page!

Now everywhere with an existing link will redirect to the new website, which is now  www.cachewalker.co.uk   ;D ;D

Will work on it some more soon, but if you want to help out let me know and I'll PM you the admin details  :)
