A new platform for Sparroworks

Having had great success with using Joomla CMS to build the Sparroworks website for the past few years I have been converted to the alternative WordPress platform as a result of moving the Bird Protection Quebec site over to it recently. WP does not have all the bells and whistles of Joomla but it has all I need and is a lot simpler to work with and has many advantages … so I have moved this site across as well.  I hope you like it – the journal is inside the site and accessed from the above link, though you know that already if you are reading this.

As you can see, the design is simpler and cleaner.  I found a really good template for the BPQ site and decided to use it, with some modifications, here as well.  It has also allowed me fully to integrate the journal (= blog) within the site at last instead of having it hanging off the end as an appendage.

And for those who just like to see pictures but are not facebookians maybe this will persuade you to become one … most of my galleries of photos that are worth sharing are now accessible through this site (see link at the top of the page).  Really they are themed collections but I have found that ocacsionally I just have one photo to share and so have have made a new gallery by the name of “An Occasional Sparroworks” and new entries for that also get posted on Facebook.  Recent “Occasional Sparroworks” have included these pictures …
