This week’s work has been mostly behind the scenes – the 2 priorities were sensible display of the photos at the top of news items and tower pages, and the general improvement of news feeds so that archived news is not included. In detail:
- The “featured image” photos at the top of pages and posts used to be displayed in a rather ugly way – thanks to Chris Smithies (Sacred Heart) for expert help on this one, the photos now look a lot better! They are centered and the peculiar grey stripy background has been replaced with plain white. Also all the heading text has dropped below the photo, which is a great improvement!
- Work is ongoing to create new style news feeds which select only current news for display on the right hand side of tower and district pages. The webmaster team was struggling with a very slow editor for the news feeds – over the last 2 weeks, the WordPress support team has upgraded the editor and now work on the news feeds is much less time consuming.
