At the recent executive meeting I was asked to make the font of this website larger.
I’ve done that. It should be larger (relatively) on all devices.
If that’s not enough, get new glasses or, on a phone or tablet, you can always use the “pinch open” gesture to make everything bigger.
We are switching to a new and better mailing program.
All who were members last year and those on Joanne’s women’s list have been subscribed to the new list.
We have linked CCNBikes to the new service. As members register on CCNBikes, they are automatically subscribed. Some of you already have, and it is retroactive.
We want to take the opportunity to house clean, but don’t want to lose anyone. To ensure we didn’t miss you or to adjust your preferences please enter your email address in the Subscribe form on this site. If you are already subscribed to the new list, you will receive a link where you can adjust your preferences. Otherwise, of course, you will be subscribed. You can also sign up from our Facebook page.
We have set up a group for Joanne’s women’s rides and placed all female members on it. (If a couple shares the same email address and both are members, that email address will be on the list.)
We are also experimenting with a group for Time Trial results and might send weekly results only to that group. That would allow those of you not interested to opt out.
The race results sub-system now responds to different screen sizes.
It’s been tested on my small Android phone, a Samsung tablet, at 1152 x 864 (on Linux) and at 1680 x 1050 (on Windows).
It still needs some tweaking – especially the search forms when displayed on the larger screens.
Please let me know if you find any problems with layout or usability.
It’s still a work in progress, but should adapt better to mobile devices.
Also, there can be multiple header images. The image is chosen at random every time a page loads or when you click on the header. If you have any featuring club members or local rides, please let me (firstname.lastname@example.org) have them. Bear in mind that I have to crop them to approx. 1140 × 350 (i.e, wide and skinny) and I think 2MB is the max size for upload.
Those of you with Hotmail accounts may not be receiving club emails, sent through our mailing program. Our service provider believes this is due to Microsoft (wrongly)designating the server where our site runs as “blacklisted.” They are contacting Microsoft, but it may be a while before they hear back.
New members, or returning members with a new email address can subscribe to our email list using the link that is at the top, right of every web site page.
I have fixed a security issue with the race results sub-system.
And the “style” was fixed to look like the old website’s.
If you notice any problems with the results, or any other part of the web site, please let the email@example.com know.
Finally a modern website.
- Your execs can change pages themselves.
- They can post news items directly to the News page.
- Members can use RSS to receive updates.
- Subscribe to our newsletter in one step, from the front page.
Some work still has to be done: Not all newsletters are archived and the points from 2015 are not displayed.
The theme is still not very mobile friendly. I hope to find one that is and has all the other features we need.
