We’re updating our Member Gallery in the club’s new website and need your help.
The Member Gallery is designed to include a favorite photo of your car(s) along with your name and a brief description of your car (Year, Make, Model, and a short description)
Right now the Member Gallery has some “place-holder” photos to give you an idea of what it will look like. Most of the captions have only the owner’s name and make of their car. The last photo in the gallery has an example of a larger description. I would suggest that we keep descriptions to no more than 50-100 words?
You can reply to the recently sent email or send me a message from your favorite email software mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
At a minimum include a car photo, your name, and the year, make and model of your car. After that . . . it’s up to you! You can view the gallery at http://iflbcc.club/member-gallery/
Thanks for your help!
Illinois Flat Land British Car Club
The Illinois Flat Land BritIt’s here! New IFLBCC websiteish Car Club (IFLBCC) is proud to announce the release of our newly redesigned website. http://www.IFLBCC.club
Our old site, managed by member Gary Brown, has served us well but web technology has moved on and it was time for us to look for a new platform. A BIG THANKS to Gary for working in the old HTML platform. It was a time consuming effort!
By updating our main site, IFLBCC.club with a stylish new look and feel, we’ve been able to improve navigation and provide enhanced communication tools. The improved capabilities will allow faster delivery of event information through the new Event Calendar and the “What’s Happening?” blog.
We encourage you to visit and explore the site. It’s BRAND NEW so consider it a work in progress.
For the “Techies”:
- The new site is a WordPress product,
- Hosted by GoDaddy.
- Change the domain name from a .com extension to .club
- Allows for multiple Administrators
- Updating is via the web and has a simple text editor interface
- WordPress blogs have access to an extensive widget and plug-in catalog.
Our new website, aside from being aesthetically pleasing, is more agile, interactive, and is easier to scan, read and navigate, enabling members and visitors just like you, to find what they need quickly.
One of our main goals we wanted to achieve when designing the new site was to help our members and visitors get to know us better and get a feel for who we are as a club. We are now using a responsive design, which means that you’ll see essentially the same design optimized for your smart phone, tablet and desktop.
Logon today and let us know how you like it!
