July 2014: Photo Update

It’s been a busy year and I know that updates to RCW have been few and far between over the last two years. My hope is to provide consistent monthly updates to the RCW Gallery as well as work on bringing back the building database. I’m working on fixing a bug with the old pages and hope to have the database back online within a few weeks (if not sooner). Long term, I hope to revamp these pages to provide accurate, consistent data. I also hope to have photos attached to each building page, a feature sorely lacking at this point.

In the meantime, a more comprehensive update on Richmond construction projects is highlighted below:

We’re Back…

Good Evening Everyone,

I worked most of the day today to clean up the web site account and get the most important parts of this project back online. As you can see, I’ve decided to start fresh with a new front end database for Richmond City Watch (RCW). I’m using WordPress, which I’ve used for the last two years on other projects I’ve set up. It’s incredibly easy to use and even easier to keep updated! I’ve found that I really need to stick with web site software that is easy to use and manage. I want to avoid the web site being taken over by spam bots, again. Check out the navigation bar on the top of the home page to find links to the Gallery and Facebook pages.

The current theme (fonts, colors and graphics) will likely change in the coming weeks. I’ll find something a little more architecturally inspiring.

Also, you’ll notice a big chunk of the web site is still missing. The following features are still MIA while I work on coming up with new ways

  • Building Database: I plan on restoring these pages as soon as possible. A future update to these pages is planned once they are back online.
  • FAQ/About US Pages: These will be updated and placed back online once I revise the content of these pages.
  • Forums: Will work to restore a functional forum for the web site. I’d also like to archive the old forum at some point.
