New Website now live

The promised new website is now live. Apologies if you have tried to access the website over the past few days. Problems occurred with re-directing the website on Sunday night and it has taken a few days for our hosting company to investigate the problem and correct it. In the process some routes to the old website were lost thus removing service. I am waiting an explanation from the management as too what happened and why it took so long to fix.

Also added to the website are recordings from the past and copies of all programmes since Spring 2005. The secure area for members does not now exist. If there is a perceived need for this in the future it will be re-implemented.

The new website is written in WordPress and it is much easier to manage. This website was written in about 10 hours total, albeit using much of the text from the old, amended as required. Having never used WordPress before the steep learning curve which happened with the old Joomla site did not materialise.

Choir news will be distributed via this blog and also by twitter (@bhchoir). Watch this space for important announcements over the following few days/weeks.
