The new Cumbria Photo website – www.cumbriaphoto.co.uk – went live today. The site has been rewritten in ASP.Net and moved to a server in the UK which should hopefully speed things up a bit.
It now features a pop-up preview image when you hover your mouse over a thumbnail image and a bit more information about each image such as dimensions and file size. Also, you can now save images in a ‘lightbox’ for later downloading.
Finally, it also features a great new design from DesignWorks in Staveley – www.thedesignworks.co.uk.
After years of ignoring my own website I’ve decided to kill 2 birds with 1 stone and simultaneously update the content and adopt WordPress as the Content Management System (CMS).
WordPress was originally designed purely for blogging but has grown to become a more generalised CMS. Its appearance can be modified by the use of ‘Themes’. At launch this site is using the ‘Cleanr‘ theme. Very basic but if you saw my old website you know that’s how I like it.
The content of the website has barely changed but I’ll try to keep it more up to date in the future and maybe also post to the blog.
