Logo - The logo on the bookings website was a lot clearer than the one on the main website so I have made the logo as sharp as the one on the bookings site. the old logo was a bit grainy and was compressed too much so now we have a stricking logo to welcome visitors + I've added the word Centre.
Feature on home page - A recent module which has replaced the images at the top of our website, It is eye catching and has the latest news, featured articles and links to popular pages. to improve it even more I will be taking images to put with these articles over the next few weeks - the exisiting photos will also feature here.
Bookings website - The new website which has replaced the bookings page on the main website is dedicated to people who want to book the whole premises out or just a room or two. This includes lots of information to help them decide wether our premises are suitable for them - in the very few months I will be putting a large scale of information online. I know that alot of businesses look on websites before phoning to enquire so to make sure we are with the times it is crucial we keep up and give the information they want. It is eye catching and has a new template which we may roll out on the main website next year.
News About Website 1 month on from Launch
Well the last month has gone fast for the website and lots of articles have been added, over the past month we have had some 1622 viewers looking at our website and had over 844 views to the popular page of all (News) We also have had 25 likes from users on Facebook and 15 people liking the Facebook group. If your on Facebook please like the page! Also if you are on Twitter you can become a follower of the church Centre where you can find out information regularly if you like a page on the website other than the home page please like it! and write a comment we would love to hear your comments. There is now a new module on the left side under bible verse of the day this will show new photos that have been put on the website. I'm afraid Internet Explorer users can't access this at the moment but I am working on getting it up. If you want to see new photos have a look on gallery every so often 2011 has different folders for the events. I am also starting to transfer sermons from the old website to the new one but this is a lengthy process but please check the sermon page for the changes. I will also be working on the Photo Gallery over the next couple of months. I am always finding ways to make the website look better and on the Anniversary of the website next year I am hoping to implicate a new Template for the website making it look even more sleek and modern. The website is based on a free open source software and it gets updated quite regularly and since I stated designing the website new versions have come out so will be looking to implicating version 1.8 when it finally arrives in April next year. It might sound along way off but I have to plan how its going to work with the template at present. Hope Everyone is enjoying this new site.

Report from last Update
0n the 6th September 2011 We released the Website to the public. We had a problem within hours of releasing the Website to the Public. The problem was found on Internet Explorer 9 which is the most recent Internet Explorer browser. "The side View boxes were overriding and the text in the boxes. Looking on Google I found it wasn't just our website but others too and it was a render problem on Internet Explorers new browser. The next day 7th September 2011 I found a plugin which allowed IE9 users to see the boxes the same as other internet users. - I Have tested every Major Brower so you should all now benefit from the new website and see the new website in all its glory.
