It’s been a bit quiet here lately and here’s why. Look around, we have a brand new site! Read on to see what’s changed…
One Of Us has been redesigned - I’ve been working away on this for a long time now and I’m sure I’ll be tweaking it as I go along.
I’m managing the site in a completely different way. I’m using a fantastic Content Management System called Expression Engine which should let me change the website much, much quicker than before. I should also be able to do some groovy things with it. This weblog that you’re reading now is just the beginning! I’ll explain more of the new features as I implement them.
Not everything is perfect. I wanted to get the work that I’ve done so far up on the web as soon as possible. This is mainly so that I have more motivation to get things done! So you may find a few things that don’t quite work the way they should. Don’t worry, this is normal. There may be some quirkiness around the forums too as I try to put some templates together (read that as “mangle a lot of things until they work”).
Some things are missing. I’m doing a major overhaul of the writers’ directory section so I’ve put this to one side for now. Also you’ll notice that the “further reading” section and the “recommended” box aren’t quite filled out on all pages. This should be temporary.
Some cool things are starting to appear. If you read our brand new news section we have magically updating (RSS feeds for those in the know) news from the Guardian Books website and the Writer’s Weekly website. More of this stuff to come!
Let’s hope everything runs smoothly and I hope you like the new site!
