Changes happening! If you have been following me, Thank you. That is my business website evolving behind that link, made possible by an educational adventure first supported by an honeraum given by the Carefree Society in March of 2017 towards the PHP script training I began with. Oh yes, I am Ken, the manager of this WordPress blog behind the Carefree Website among a few others. The Carefree Website itself was my showcase website for the last series of courses I took prior to March 2016 and it was donated to them. I sit on their board. I went on past that initial course with further grants supplied by the funders of Make A Change Canada. I learned about framework software like Bootstrap, blog platforms like WordPress, tricks to get more web traffic with SEO Tools. The Static Website ahead of this blog will undergo a transformation very soon to be accessible for Cellphones as just one of the advantages to updating it. I’ll even do some SEO work on it as time goes on, this WordPress Blog has a plugin or 2 helping it . Thanks for looking in as it progresses. I’ll set up a subscribe link for our feed here soon, as one change yet to come just to this part. Theme changes too perhaps to make it more like the leading website. This has been made possible through the IBDE and Business Abilities courses which are accredited through Selkirk College in Nelson, BC. Well, enough about me.
The website you see as you traverse through carefreesociety.org at the moment was hard coded using bulky “Web Authoring” software called Adobe Dreamweaver V5x, which writes the HTML code in the accessible “extended” format or XHTML and the designer does not have to have a lot of HTML experience to use the software. Better results are seen where the designer knows the code and is able to tweek and add when needed though. The software made it great for persons with visual or hearing challenges using aids to “see” the website with a reader or audio aid with very little editing of the code. Unfortunately the procedure to write it accessible for your cellphones and tablets involved some technical skills difficult to master and that is what the internet needs now, as there are fewer and fewer people who use a computer these days exclusively.
With PHP, it can input fields for application etc, perhaps registration of services if the Board wishes it. Any number of input forms as secure as our website can be. I just need physical input from the board, as we will need to form a website team as the revamp progresses. Bootstrap will make an entire site redesign possible for the smallest cellphones and slightly larger tablets and other touch ready screens. This entire website will again be a showcase site, this time for walknroll.info to launch hopeful success before the next 5 years which will bring a new domain. My first sales of a Website to offer my maintenance services on has yet to happen, but I am sitting here with this one and Volunteer Prince George‘s and advising the Handy Circle Resources Society on their blog, in a team with their writer. We will still need a writer for this one, if you are interested. In closing, a business ad quietly slipped in. Thanks for reading thus far, stay tuned!
