The CHA Site Phase 2 is launched!

Post by jtaylor » Mon May 01, 2006 7:10 pm

Louise and I are pleased to tell you that all our hard work has finally paid off and
the new version of the CH Association website has been launched!


www.chassociation.org

Key highlights:-

:arrow: All information has been transferred from OldBlues.com (OldBlues.com will remain live for the moment, but will eventually be pointed at the CHA website)

:arrow: The new Old Blues section contains the amazing Blue Yellow Pages which lists Old Blues by Last Name. You can search through the information by name, years, house(s)/ward(s), or keywords. Alternatively you can view the lists of "Publications", "Where are they now?" and "Obituaries". This is a fantastic resource that will make your searches for fellow Old Blues much easier.

:arrow: The News Section now includes the News Archive which automatically includes all current news articles, along with Old Blues News and the email newsletters from OldBlues.com.

:arrow: RSS delivery:- Get the CHA News and Old Blue Information via RSS feeds - news and info "pushed" to your desktop via Click here for details of what RSS is

:arrow: Events, Event Reviews and Event Galleries now have their own sections and include all the reports and photos from past events previously on OldBlues.com.

:arrow: Mobile Phone delivery - get the latest CHA News and Old Blue Information on your mobile phone. This section of the site offers the last 30 news and Blue Yellow Pages articles in a low graphics format perfect for your mobile!

Full details and links to the RSS/Mobile sections are to be found on the CHA website:- www.chassociation.org

We hope you like the new version of the site, and that you'll find it a useful resource for information on your contemporaries and Old Blue friends.

Kind regards,

Julian & Louise

NEW CHA WEBSITE

Dear Louise & Julian,
I have had an initial look at the new site and think that it is terrific - very well done to you both. It will take many hours if not weeks to work out the full extent of the facilities and information that you have now made available to all of us but I am sure that I speak for all Old Blues in saying that you have done a remarkable job for which we are all very grateful.

Yes, congratulations all round. I imagine that a fair bit of work has gone into this.

Adding the Old Blues content is an excellent idea, and having a way of letting people know when the content is updated is extremely important.

Now, how can I get the updates sent to a Windows 98 based system? :? :oops:

Think I'd better start reading all the links.............

The RSS and mobile delivery are the most powerful additions, combined with the database of Old Blues Information and the News database.

For Windows 98, try this:- http://www.feedreader.com/

Wouldn't these be the green pages?

Nice site by the way.

I keep meaning to get around to it.

Actually, I bought my set-up for £90 all-in from the liquidators when the company I was working for a few years ago went bust, so I suppose I shouldn't complain. It is a bit creaky now, though.

Also, I've heard that people who create viruses don't much bother with Windows 98 any more (touch wood).

I don't think I had better go there from work or I will never get anything done but it sounds very exciting.

Hubby out for the rest of the week (not an invitation) so I will have time for a peruse at home.

You won’t find yourself in the B/Y pages unless there is an article/information about you on the web. Having said that, why not e-mail the CHA (http://www.chassociation.org/contacts/index.php) and ask them to add the following link, which is the link to your forum profile:
