Road Map and Improvements

The School Days Team

  • We now have a growing online team which increase our pool of opinion and ideas
    • We'll be introducing people to you as soon as we get a chance!

The Photo Archive

  • is a vital part of our history but re-linking it is a complex procedure because the new software needs to be configured and tested
    • we are also working on a feature where you can view archive pictures in an entertaining way - a little like a slide show

Articles

  • there are some issues with the pictures not having white space around them so the text is harder to read. There are 500 articles so this is going to take a little time
  • some articles are not linking correctly to their full content. We are fixing these as we find them or as they are reported
  • some spelling issue have been reported
  • we have a backlog of articles to publish - These have started arriving now!
  • You are able to Rate and Comment on Articles, you just have to be logged in.
  • Looking to start 1980's - 1990's, 2000's - 2010's sections in Our History
  • Completing the next set of Ralph Mann articles

Ex-Pupil (Old School Tie) Network

  • This was never used as we had hoped so we are changing it to allow you to display the business you are currently working in. Not only is that more interesting but if that helps their SEO and exposure that helps you
  • The Alumni Products and Services will be a part of this as there are many items, such as books ex-pupils have written, which deserve a decent home
