New Website Launch

Sam Dauncey has been our webmaster for the past twenty years and anyone who has looked at the FCSA website will know that it is like a compendium of all the happenings within the society over those years.

A huge debt of thanks must go to Sam Dauncey for creating and maintaining the website and for all the work he has put into keeping it updated all this time. Thank you, Sam.

In May 2016 there were 2859 pages made up of HTML and Javascript. There must be considerably more now. Sam informed the committee that the system he was using was obsolete and the search was on to find a new platform that would work well on iPads and iPhones. However, it became clear that to translate all the pages on this website into a new programming language would take hours of work and cost the society a large sum of money.

After exploring a number of different ideas, the society was fortunate that one of our members, Olga Salgado and her husband Steve Hammatt offered to help build a new website from scratch. The old website will be archived and available to members on a memory stick.

The new website was launched on Wednesday 1st July. Grateful thanks to Olga and Steve for volunteering their expertise and for leading the subcommittee in creating the new look website.

The new website is accessed from exactly the same web address at https://www.fcsaonline.org.uk.
