De-mystifying the PWs homepage

Just so you know: this page was imported from my old blog. Some pages were rather mangled in the process; my apologies if things don't quite look right.

PWs relaunchWhen we first launched PurpleWednesdays online it was good, but it wasn't so easy to put each week's version online. In fact, it was a bit of a pain to do, so we had a head-scratch and came up with the idea of putting the articles up using the existing system for adding news stories for the various clubs and societies around the site.

We've also changed the way the homepage is built up - by hand instead of automagically - so we can shuffle things around, add new bits, remove bits we don't have any news in, and generally tweak things to suit each individual issue; much more appropriate for PWs because it follows the printed version, where no two issues have the same mix of content.

All we need now to make it a really, really good magazine is plenty more club and society news stories, an extra bod or two in the office to help convert print stories into online ones, and an endless supply of beer and nuts to keep us going... ;o)

p.s. fancy a Wii?
