October site news

Beside chasing typos (!), a few extras have been added this month to the UCCA community site: today’s date in the upper middle of the page; banners of animated ads on the left and in the bottom of the page (thank you for your patience, Terri!); calendar of events that can be edited by the community online; classified ads that can be posted again by the community online and a search engine for the site and the web. Please, try the calendar, the classified ads and the search engine, it is easy! To implement these new features, applets have been used from Bravenet, at http:// www.bravenet.com/, free of charge. For the number crunchers, to this date, the site represents 58 pages, that's 257 files in 12 folders for a total of 21 Mo and... 981 visitors.


September site news

It has been about 2 months since the 17th of June when our new community site www.uccanews.org went online.

By mid September, 755 visitors checked out the site. That is about 7 a day, far from the unique visitor per day of the previous site! Twenty-six percent of those visitors are
returning visitors, that is, visitors who have previously visited the website. An image being worth a thousand words, please, see the graph here below and... be
that special 1000th visitor!

Thanks as well for voting. 83% think Swanson pool should stay open year round and 17% - it should close 3 months. For now, the Will Faeber Band comes first with 59% of the votes. Please, continue to vote.

There have been though less contributions in 2 months with the new than with the previous Internet site, may be because of the hot Summer months or... the new richer interface which may appear intimidating with its 51 large, colorful pages.
