The Anam Cara House Geelong website went live earlier in the year, and now the Anam Cara House Colac site has gone live. The designs of the two sites vary somewhat to give a distinctive feel, however both sites use WordPress with a variety of plugins so that the administration and documentation is similar between both sites.
The site does not use WordPress widgets – a deliberate choice until such time as there is additional content on the site and the volunteers who will be updating the site become more familiar with the administration interface.
As with the Geelong site, one of the stumbling blocks was again the choice of Events Calendar. At first, the trusted EC was used, but it does not handle custom permalinks very well. I’ve settled instead on Events Calendar by Luke Howell, which is more basic but as is often the case, more reliable.
