Moving Hosts

By |2019-02-11T15:10:11+00:00February 11th, 2019|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , |

Last year, a website was set up on WordPress.com for a client,
 The Art of Living and Dying, a group of women helping those facing life’s highs and lows with practical information and professional support. The group required a single page website for event and contact information.

Over the weekend, the website was quickly moved over to a self hosted WordPress install to give the site a full range of functionality and customisation options that a self hosted WordPress installation provides.

The domain name changed too with the Art of Living and Dying now found at https://www.theartoflivinganddying.co.uk

Picfair Top Ten Pick

I was very pleased when last week one of my photographs was featured on the Picfair blog in the post ‘Picfair’s Top 10 Image Uploads of the Week: 9th March‘.

The photograph was a recent image upload to Picfair shot during a snowstorm while walking in Consett, a town in the north east of England, at the start of the ‘Beast from the East’ winter storm that took hold of much of the UK in late February and early March. The photo was taken on the way back from shopping in the town, just as the snowfall had started to increase.

The image was also featured on the Picfair Twitter feed on March 8th.

Single Page Website

Websites come in many different sizes and don’t have to be multi page to do the job. A recent commission was to build a one page website for The Art of Living and Dying, a group of women helping those facing life’s highs and lows with practical information and professional yet sensitive support.

The group needed a simple, single page website setting up to provide contact and event information. The cost of building and running a hosted website didn’t really stack up for just one page so the website was created using the fully hosted wordpress.com with a domain name forwarding to the page. An effective and affordable solution that provides the option to expand the website if needed.

Looking for Something?

I’ve been doing some upgrading to website pages over the last couple of weeks and decided that the website could do with a search page. There are a few search forms located in the sidebar on a number of pages, but i think a dedicated page, just to search through the website posts, pages and portfolios, makes finding things that much easier.

Initially I started out with a simple search form and a photo, but then decided to try something a bit more radical. Again i started out just using one of my images as a background, but then hit upon the idea of using video shot in Skye during a visit in 2014.

Rather pleased with the results of using time lapse video as a background. A nice use of the footage from one of my favourite places as well.
