Can I just add, that Drupal won hands down as its so easy to use. We
will show you how to add your blog and static pages to the site when we
next have a meeting with a web connection ((!!??!!), but it is really,
really easy to use.
The idea is that all your pet projects can now have an outlet for you to
tell the world about, or about your first wanderings in the world of a
new distro, or Linux itself ;-)
Mark and I logged in and wrote our first blog posts /in/ /minutes/
without any tuition; it is that easy.
Hopefully, we can add more pages, (some from the old site still at
http://xtype.phil-taylor.co.uk/~hlugorg/content/view/17/51/ ), and more
new features too.
But all in all, its YOUR lug, and we want to involve more members.
You can also add comments to posts on the website, if you wish to add a
point that the original poster missed, or just for a bit of healthy debate !
I hope the new website, and the time that Mark and I have spent putting
it together will energise the group and enable us all to get a bit more
involved and get more out of it.
It's your turn now .....
