....just a little update as to some of our new & upcoming changes.

We have a no. of major changes to the site under development behind the scenes right now & have divided the work into 2 phases. Phase 1 includes re-laying out the navigation of the entire site, sorting out the navigation problems (in particular the rather convoluted Gear section) & amalgamating the WCA & CCR websites. The WCA site & the CCR site will still be independent of each other but they will be integrated to some degree so that it will be simple to move between them and easier to share information common to both.

In addition, we are moving the entire site to a Content Management System which will allow us to have various people (other than only the site admin) work on updating the content of various sections. This work is all under Phase 1 of our project.

Phase 2 is an overhaul of the Routes Database section. When it is completed we should be able to (finally!) upload GPX files & have a map with the data automatically displayed (currently done manually for just a few routes). We should also be able to upload photos & other information along with the route info & have the photos display when the route is called up.

We will also be attempting to put a lot of the information that is currently in the Routes Forums into the database so that it is searchable & thus easier to find & use. In addition, the Search function will be modified so as to be more usable.

This is a mammoth job, but we hope within the next few months to be up & running with Phase 1.

An attempt will be made to keep everybody updated as things happen!
