Improving Our Website
June 30, 2014
Some of you may have noticed problems with our website, particularly objects appearing where they shouldn’t and the like.
Our website is built on a platform that was okay years ago, but is now obsolete and not supported by its creator. All kinds of creaks and aches appear, as with lots of things that have gotten old. You occasionally get unexplained surprises, like this morning, when our automatic email notification service (for those of you who subscribe to our blog) inexplicably sent out several stories that are months old. That shouldn’t have happened. We don’t know why. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The good news is that we’re in the process of migrating our site to WordPress, the most robust platform around and very widely used, especially for sites with lots of new postings. The new site will have all the features of the current one, plus an improved store and other new features.
We hope to have it up by the end of July. Until then, thanks for your understanding and patience.
