WEBSITE LAUNCH!!!!


Yes, finally, at long last, it’s here!

Today we (Alianore/Kathryn and I (Lady D/Jules) are pleased as punch and immensely proud to announce the official launch of the Everything Edward II website. It has everything from both of our blogs together in one place, plus a few little extras, so be sure to put it in your bookmarks!.

Obviously it has room for lots of growth and new features. There are plenty of areas that still need articles written, and plenty of locations which need photographs taken. If you have any suggestions or comments – or if you notice any typos, missing links or anything else that needs rectifying, please let us know. Thanks for all the support you’ve given us on the blogs so far and please continue to support us on this new venture. We would love it if this could eventually be one of the biggest – and best – historically themed sites on the web!

And for those who are interested…

And for those who are really interested:

Techie Details
Platform:
Mac OS X 10.5.8
Software Used:
Rapidweaver 4 using RWT Moxie2 theme
Rapidweaver Plugins Used:
Blocks, Loghound Sitemap, Rapidsearch (not up yet)
Other Software: Photoshop, Illustrator

Future plans:
Addition of North Wales posts and galleries
Update to Mostly Medieval Bookshop (more books to be added – but if you could buy your books through us it would help fund the hosting costs etc)
Additions to existing photo galleries, e.g. Gloucester Cathedral, Tewkesbury Abbey etc

There is one issue I know about – the size of the italicised text – but any others, please tell. There may also be issues with older versions of IE – this happens with a lot of websites. The best thing to do in this case is, I’m afraid, to upgrade to a newer version (free).

I shall be updating the site once a week, but you can still catch up with any blog updates on there instantly.

Right, after all that, I now need a little break before starting my novel Despenser ;-). More news on that soon!

Oh, and just in case you forget…. CLICK HERE! 😉

About Jules Frusher

With an MA in Creative and Critical Writing, I am passionate about the written word. The other great loves of my life are all things Medieval (especially Hugh le Despenser the Younger) and animal behaviour (especially canids and corvids). Give me a castle in the wilderness (with Broadband!) and I'll be happy!
