Just a bit of excitement for me - how sad

Posted by markf , in Website news 17 December 2010 - - - - - - · 468 views

Been doing a lot to improve search engine rankings lately and had some pretty good results but since we started in 2003 I have never been able to get touring and tenting on the first page of google search results using the keyword "caravanning" this is because we haven't got caravanning or similar in our name. So for example the camping and caravanning club have a head start whereas touring and tenting struggles. So today I was chuffed to bits (how sad is that) to find touring and tenting not only on the first page but 2nd with the key word "caravanning"

For any reading this it probably doesn't mean a lot but to me its a big deal and gives me a kind of personal endorsement that the redesigns have or are have a positive affect. Better search results mean more visits, more visits mean more members and with luck more activity all round.


Showroom Upgraded

Posted by markf , in Website news 03 November 2010 - - - - - - · 236 views

I have upgraded the Showroom today with a few new features.

If you have added your caravan, motorhome, towcar etc but not managed to add a photo please have another go and maybe use the resizing tutorial here

Some of the features are:

When you add a new vehicle it automatically creates to a new topic in the forums (clubhouse) and notifies you if someone comments on it.
Easy links so you can link to your vehicle
Share links so you can share your vehicle on FB, Twitter etc
There is now a Vehicle link in your profile
Various other changes include the correction of the pound sign etc

Hope you like it and please let me know if you have any probs.

If you really struggle with uploading a pic please feel free to Email me with it

Forums trimmed down

Posted by markf , in Website news 03 November 2010 - - - - - - · 337 views

After a lot of thought and some conversations at the rally I have trimmed the forums down as it was felt they were getting to long and was maybe confusing for new and existing members for example workshop is back to being 1 forum where previously it was 6 broken down into various sub forums etc.

Hope you like it and if you feel there are other areas that could be improved please let me know

From: New system "Showroom"

Posted by markf , in Website news 07 February 2010 - - - - - - · 420 views
showroom, caravans, motorhomes and 4 more...
I have added a new system on the forums basically for you to show off your outfits (Caravans, motorhomes, tents, tow cars etc) to other members of the forum, but it will have other uses.

You can add up to 5 vehicles. Don't forget to add a piccy or 2 (let me know of you have problems)

At the moment I have only the basic switched on and there is still a fair bit to do but for that I need your help as you can add modifications or extra details so I need you to tell me what you think would be good to add.

As an example I have added "Weight or mtplm" as an option for caravans but if you have a motorhome you might want other information added.

Let me know what you would like to see added or altered.

Hope you enjoy it, thats the main thing

You can find it at the top of the forum "Showroom" or there is a block on the right

Have added some new fields under extra info

Max Gross Weight
Weight unladen
Awning Size
Overall Length
Overall Width
Overall Height
