Right, so the site is now safely ensconced in bonny Scotland, we have been deciding what to do next. The site arrived with two fatal errors and a long list of other things that needed doing, but I must say that I have not even bothered to look: I'm guessing from looking at the control panel, it is only for the new site, so I am guessing that everything from before is gone: it must be a characteristic of Drupal as an open source site. I do know that with regards to ThisisMS, my very first post is still there, and it saves loads of peoples private messages then warns them if their message box is becoming full.

So, Mac and I are going to have a new site built by Iomart, using much of the medical knowledge gleaned from the old site. They will do this using a dev file so that everyone can continue to use this site until the new site goes live.

Thank you to Jim for allowing us to use all the old stuff from the original cpnhelp.

It probably won't look much different from the current site because all the information will still be here. The main difference will be that it will work, and you will once again be able to send private messages and paragraph your posts!

I am thinking of asking the background of the text to be made very light cream and the borders maybe sea greens: what do you think about that?

Of course the text will be kept sans serif because it is easier to read on the screen, unlike in a book where serifs come into their own!

Sarah, it sounds great, so long as the text contrasts enough! And the fact that it will work, as expected, will be a huge improvement! Good luck to you and Mack! Jane

I have been working on it today and certainly you will have enough contrast!

I believe no one will decide better the colors and typo than a painter. ;) I guess the main points were already said: easy for people (sometimes with visual problems) to read. I have never listened about Iomart, is it just a hosting? or a Content Creator? I remember myself using Joomla or WordPress as Content Creators... though, it is not the best of the options as you will get stocked into the features they already offer...

Gisel·la, Iomart is a Scottish company, formerly called Easyspace, which does both hosting and creating. Before, I have just used them for hosting and wrote my own sites, but cpn is more interactive so I want their help. They use Wordpress and Drupal, but mostly they create their own sites, and I think with the fatal errors that came with the site, that is the way to go!

Will we have the option of changing it to our own liking?

To be decided! I just got a message saying that the fatal errors had been sorted so one thing at a time.
