We started to test and evaluate various options for a new site in the autumn of 2011 - finally we chosed Drupal 7, which is a powerful CMS (Content Management System) and as our provider of web-hotel, we chosed Oderland, which is based in Gothenburg. We were previously linked to Smelink, but demanded more than they could deliver.
We also decided early to use HTML5 and CSS3 - these are new technologies and standards are not nailed yet - this can create problems for you with older Web browsers (mainly just cosmetic).
This entire site, we have made our selves - for better and worse - but we have learned a lot along the way and can finally present this to you. New is for example the following:
- This new "Blog" - which we will try to update 2-4 times a month.
- All pages are now designed for new gadgets as "Smartphones", "iPAD" and so on. - The layout will change after the receiver's window size.
- Ability to put up bigger updates for you to download.
- Now you can also select to read this in either English or Swedish.
- We will about once a month, be doing polls to you concerning the development etc. , these you will find under support.
- Our new "Forum" - where can you as a user ask questions and discuss with other users, etc.
- You as a user can also comment on several points, including this blog below.
Also new are your user accounts that will become personal - When you first log in with your company account, you can choose the user name password etc..
Now we will not take up more of your time - surf around and check everything - then comment below what you think...
