New Solfed website

Any thoughts on the new Solfed website? The design's very accessible and it's good that members can upload content straight away. red n black star

the design's still in progress as i understand it; hopefully there'll be a major CSS overhaul sometime soon. structurally though it's a major change, meaning any member/local can add content, which should mean it gives a much more accurate reflection of what SolFed are up to.

Yeah, let's say the new site is in beta - it's mostly functional, but not ready to launch officially. We'll be making a lot of changes still.
Please don't link to it yet though, as things will change, including the domain name.

really massive improvement, well done.

Does this mean now that locals will just merge their websites into the central one, using a tag (like Brighton, or Brighton Solfed). That would seem sensible to me in terms of centralising resources to avoid duplication of effort

We're a federal organisation, so it's up to locals and industrial networks how they organise themselves, but that's definately the idea. In the medium term, locals and networks should also be able to have semi-separate websites, e.g. brighton.solfed.org.uk, whose content will also be accessible from the main site.

Personally I'd favour retaining the local websites as they emphasise the autonomy local groups enjoy compared to groups of the revolutionary left. Also much of the links section on our local's website is very specific to our area and it's all hooked to Facebook and Twitter which pulls in a lot of hits.

I know it's not the finished product yet, but the website's looking class right now. Good variety of content, regularly updated, lots of members uploading stuff and the internal forums are showing lots of promise. Excellent work!
