Updating the Community Site

As the Site becomes busier, we’re learning more about what we need to do to make it more user-friendly.   As you may have noticed, Mark, our technician, is assiduous in updating it with new functionality every few weeks.  Here’s what his latest update has provided:

  • A more detailed Group Search facility.
  • A username search so that you can message other Site users confidentially via the Site.
  • A new way of letting you know when the next Site Events are coming up.
  • A refinement that lets you go directly to the latest comment in a comment thread.
  • A ‘donate’ button - we’re always grateful for your support!

We're now looking at simplifying the colours, and explaining the different kinds of content that populate our pages.

Please let us know what other improvements you’d like to see.  Just email us here.
