I just added some filters/tags to the Gallery.

Please have a look as I'd appreciate some feedback on the way it works, and if anything needs improving.

Thanks.

Hi Andrew, just an idea but is it possible to add members names (and maybe shortened names/common nicknames too) into the site dictionary please? I don't know how many times I've had to ignore 'Chand', for example, when I'm spell checking my entries!

Funnily enough, most people on here find that Rob's last sentence also makes perfect sense using just the first eleven words.

Hi Everyone, I've made a few changes around here as you've probably noticed.

I'm only half way through, as I intend to change the structure of the site to allow it to change shape depending on what screen you're viewing it on, i.e. mobile, tablet or desktop.

The first obvious change so far is the location of the menu, this has been moved to the top of the page to create more room for the content below. This paves the way for the structural change later on.

I've also removed a few features, which may upset some people, but they weren't used very often:

The Classified section. This survives on the Wotton Town Council website, for now, and it's also on [external link]

Weather Forecast: I've never been happy with the accuracy of the forecast. Most people I talked to preferred to use the BBC forecast instead.

Cinema Listings: This was always up to date, but not as good as been able to view images, trailers and being able to book online on the cinema's own website!

Your constructive feedback will be appreciated!

Thanks for taking the time to make these changes Andrew; looking forward to seeing the finished result.

Personally, I'm not upset by the removal of the features you've mentioned. I'm guessing other bits have gone temporarily and will return - eg, the number of people online for the discussion board (hopefully?)

Ah yes, I forgot how handy that was. I've reinstated it in the menu, under Discussion Board.

Anything else ... ?
