Website Upgrade

You will have noticed some changes to the website as we go about upgrading and improving the site for members and visitors.   Some of the changes already implemented are cosmetic only while other ideas are more substantial and require some strategic planning by the committee.

So we’re looking for feedback from members as to how the website can be improved and what kind of information/features you are looking for here.  There is a comments form/button below so please feel free to contribute your ideas here or email them direct to admin@grasslandnsw.com.au

Basically we’re looking for the Grassland NSW website to:

  • have a fresh and modern look
  • provide services to Society members (membership/conference information, etc)
  • publish relevant information on grassland/pasture management
  • publicise upcoming events

We welcome your ideas on how to best achieve these objectives so look forward to hearing your comments.

  1. Is it possible to have a search engine to interrogate the web site by author, subject etc to help when chasing old articles?

  2. Is it possible to have a search engine to interrogate the web site by author, subject etc to help when chasing old articles?

  3. Good idea – the search engine does search on any text now including author, subject but as papers are accessed via articles containing the index only (ie. not directly), this can be quite clumsy.

    We need to think about how to publish articles in such a way as the information can be searched more effectively. Can be done with more work publishing them individually in the first place and using tags/categories, etc but perhaps other ways of tacking this issue. Will need to consider all options as it is an important one.

    Other suggestions very welcome…
