In March 2015 the 4WardEver UK website underwent a second comprehensive upgrade since its first launch in 2006.
This redevelopment was made possible by generous donations of resources and web designers time that was offered from our partner First Stop Web Design.
So what’s new on 4WardEver UK?
The new upgraded website has a number of major improvements and new interactive facilities which include:
Visual and Text Layout
Our page-view layouts are a lot clearer helping visitors to preview news related to the primary articles and pages on display. Improved archive section and search facilities are included, as well as a cleaner overall view compatible with hand-held and mobile devices.
See more from home!
Our new home page has more of our recent news content visible to visitors and other tools to help you to find what you are looking for easier. See the defined news category areas, translation panel, featured video and recent Flickr gallery all in one place.
Getting around the site and finding content from our vast resources is made much easier using our main menus and intelligent search system and recent posts and comments displays as well as the drop-down archive and category modules.
With the new enhanced social network tools you can share our content quickly and easily via Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Linkedin and many other platforms.
Most of our pages now display a news snippets panel near the base (see example below). These are a typically a collection of recent news items in a category related to the content of the page that you are viewing. It’s interactive – so you can scroll the panel to see more of the news archived in that particular subject area.
We post broad areas of news consistent with our purpose in our regular bulletins and e-Updates. We will be further developing the system as time goes on, and we hope that our subscribers find the content of our newsletter useful and informative.
In our new ‘UR Shout area‘ read how to become a ‘Volunteer Writers‘ for 4WardEver helping to build up our case profiles. Get involved with UFFC in their national network, and give your feedback on our website.
We have taken all steps within our means to ensure the new website broadly complies with W3C standards and with The Equality Act ensuring that people with disabilities will be able to use the site and have the same access to content and resources as any other visitors. This is an area of ongoing development that 4WardEver UK will be committed to indefinitely.
