Welcome to our February 2017 newsletter. Finally, finally we have our new website! As you can see, a brand-new design, with up-to-date technology and more user-friendly. So no matter whether you are a new visitor or have been using our podcast services for a while, here are the most important changes/improvements:
Design: We have dropped the dark colours and have brightened things up a fair bit. Some of you had mentioned in the past that the contrasts and the small writing were a problem. Should you have any comments about this, please email.
The media player: Our old audio player was flash-based, so there were always issues on macs and mobile devices. Now our players are .html5 players, so they play in any device, anywhere and are much easier to use. Should you have any comments about this, please email.
Feeds: The RSS feed to iTunes and other podcast providers stopped working a while ago, and we could never figure out what the problem was. Well we have, but there are still a few issues about this which we are trying to solve. So for now we have a feed which works on the soundcloud and the RSS, but that still needs updating a little. We hope to have this fixed very soon. Our uploads to soundcloud are continuing, but this will still take some time, as there is so much of it. You can find the soundcloud entries here, and the RSS entries here. Should you have any comments about this, please email.
The Archive: We know that the archive is probably the most important part of our website, and that is why we have spent much time and effort on this. Have a look! As you can see, the latest talks are on top, followed by a general search bar and calendar. In both you can find archive entries by name, event, topic, or in the case of the calendar, by date. Then there are the entries ordered by year (the orange boxes). This is probably the easiest way to look for, and to find things. Below the indices (or indexes, both are correct, so the internet tells me) you can find the tags, with the alphabetical tag list the easiest to use. We know that there is still a lot of work to do on the archive pages, and we also have many exciting plans for it, so please bear with us on this one. Should you have any comments or suggestions, please email.
