4/10/2013 Full Functionality Restored.
On the good note, we received the go-ahead from the State Deputy to form a Web Committee, with real Tech Support and real Training to be provided. We have one or two spots left to fill on the Committee, please let me know if you would be interested. Things are really looking up, and we can begin to implement long-awaited features, like individual log-in, protected content, user searching, etc.
On the down side of things, the original provider was the institution behind the "Council Websities" initiative, so that wonderful idea is gone along with them. There are many ways to effectively communicate with your constituents, and Website presence represents a part of the whole picture. I'm trying a few things out on my local Councils, and I've advise quite a few of the larger Councils on their questions. Stay tuned for further developments.
