Just been thinking about the website.

If we setup the website a brand for The Longest Day, not about any ride.

Then have a page for the current ride and page for past rides.

Future rides would be easier to add, and the whole site wouldnt re-need done each year. basicall the ride moves to the past ride and new is add.

just a thought

I will get a free web host setup tonight, so you see what i am thinking

Doesn't DaveS host the site on the XRV server?, any template you use will have to allow online registration (is this something you can do?)
Some of the free hosts do not run all the fancy plug-ins on their servers so also may hinder online registration :thumbup:

The current site (used for two years now) is a wordpress site. It can be radically overhauled by anyone with a knowledge of wordpress. I can give a webmaster some help or train up a few people in how to add content. I won't be able to commit long-term though. Posted by Whealie in the Planning thread.

Bazza I would suggest you speak to DaveS who does host the TLD web site on his server.

The current site is hosted and a wordpress site. This means anyone with a password and log in can get in and add material. We can archive what is on there and start again.

Happy to help get started, just cannot commit to loading each and every rider's details etc. But I can show you how it is done.

happy to spend a few hours with people one weekend getting it started.

That looks pretty much like the theme we ave and it can easily be adapted to that. I'd need to look at the exact image size etc but should be no probs to get something very similar.

Dave has kindly setup the dev area, so we dont have to touch the current one, i have asked him to copy the current site over. once he has done that i will PM you the details.

I was/am going to have a look and play, to see what i can do. Dave has also gave us access to a database, which could be used for the rider details as they register, then this could be use to populate the rider area :thumbup: saving re-entering them

i have knock this up for the last few days at work :D

The content needs sorted, but it more for the layout.

I have tried to create a generic site, aimed at being about 'The Longest Day' Event and what we, the XRVers do. one page for current ride

you will need a usernm and password to access the site. its in developement area, until we have something we are happy with.

username xrvdev
password xrvdev
