Website News--28 Aug 16
Our website was visited by 426 ‘unique individuals’ last week, (up 126 from 300 in week ending 28 Feb),with 3551 individual pages visited in the week (up from 2002 in week ending 28 Feb). The posting of group notes from the newsletter to individual group web pages every month leads to a wonderful resource for visitors finding out more about our programs as well as providing an historical record and a ready reference for members.
Having a scrolling ‘calendar’ on the front page is proving very useful . This month, however, we realised that any information on the calendar’s location line links automatically to a ‘map’. Clicking on to the map link next to the Garden Team location entry “meeting at Kathy’s” led one member to being directed to Kathy’s Garden Supplies in Canada; clicking on the map next to ‘W4’ led one member being directed to an address in London! Full venue address details are now added to the location line when this doesn’t affect member privacy.
A reminder that the transition to the new website was completed in January. The old website address has now been phased out. Please ensure that the new address has been recorded as your bookmark/ favourite/shortcut. http://u3abenalla.weebly.com

Learning to use Weebly
This website has been set up using the user friendly Weebly platform. It is very easy to use if you have word processing skills - a big plus is that you can see how the page will look on the screen while working on it. Newsletter reports are added to the web page each month, helping it to stay up to date. Photos of group activities always welcome!
We hope some convenors and members will join in with the development of the website and as part of this, learn how to use Weebly. Initial training and support will be provided on request - we've added some training resources below which may be of interest.
