To enable completion of this project I would like to request that we again hire the services of Nathan Lisgo to assist with the final stages. We estimate that the new website can be completed and uploaded to our sever within 33 hours of Nathan's time. The estimate is broken down into tasks as follows: Integrate website menus into the migration : 1 day Configuration of views; Views calendar, front page images and others : 1 day Fix possible problems with forum 'quote' module : 1/2 day (depending on what's found) Fix as yet unknown issues : 1 day Upload to digital ocean server for test phase : 1/2 day Implement of new site on live server : 1/2 day This represents 33 hours which will be £1980 (including VAT). If work is completed in under these hours the remainder will be used on further improvements and tweaks. It would be hoped that the new site would be online before the new year.”
Since then cde Poynton has resigned from the Internet Committee… and the party.November 5, 2017 at 12:21 am #130326
That is a pity. I understood he resigned from the IC but i must have missed the bit where he left the Party. However, i am sure he still maintains a comradely attitude and so is there a possibility he can be asked to pass over the reins of the new website and the contact details Nathan Lisgo so that the project can continue.If we approved payment for professional assistance, can we approach DJP and ask if he, too, is willing to accept a paid commission?November 5, 2017 at 1:41 am #130327
There doesn't appear to be a whole lot more to do, it has been a huge undertaking converting from the one Drupal 6 CMS (content management system) to Drupal 7, so it's only dependent on how much and how often Darren and Nathan can commit time to it.Once the website update project has been completed, we will be running on two instances of Drupal 7. The site has been built using a GIT repository meaning that the project can easily be passed on to a qualified developer as all the stages of the build have been documented.A new department member Neil Kirk who has experience, has got involved with this update also and will liaise with Darren, again this week and potentially every two weeks after that until it's live.I can't give, I don't have, any more detailed info than that.February 25, 2018 at 9:11 am #130328

An unforeseen issue has arisen with the website upgrade which will hopefully be addressed by Conference.October 5, 2018 at 10:32 pm #151323
Still had great difficulty logging in. Is there not a more user friendly way of doing this. How does a newcomer to the forum go about registering?October 6, 2018 at 9:03 am #151411
Not impressed, eitherOctober 6, 2018 at 4:47 pm #151545
I only just saw this. It has been flagged up for action. Perhaps under ‘Forum’, we should have a ‘Join the Forum’ option. Please be patient while it all is worked through.October 6, 2018 at 5:16 pm #151548
Thanks, Matt, for taking me through the complicated way to rejoin. It worked (I hope). Soon find out.October 6, 2018 at 5:22 pm #151549
