Website update

After extensive testing behind the scenes, Bristol Wireless’ website has undergone a makeover and is now wearing its new clothes in public. In addition, the more observant will note that the Bristol Wireless logo in the top right of each page has also changed to the design we commissioned from Beef. We have nevertheless retained the ‘in your aerial’ strapline which roots us firmly as a Bristol organisation.

Your correspondent would like to thank our web wizard Chris Wach for all his work on the update. When are we upgrading WordPress Chris?

    Thanks Chris, this is looking very good. The rss feeds add extra dynamic content and functionality. I reckon it rocks!

    I’m still getting the old logo on the RSS feed. I also had to login to view the home page. Perhaps that’s just me though?

    I too have had the login box come up, so it’s not just you; however, if you just close it, I’ve found the page loads normally. Nevertheless, it’s something that needs sorting out.

    Heh, sorry about the login box – my browser stored the login details, so I didn’t notice in time. Doh! Should be fixed now. Andy, what do you mean you get the old logo on the rss feed? I suspect that’s your RSS reader caching it, having picked it up somehow.

    The comments rss feed, for example (, has a link to which is actually the old postage stamp logo.

    Is that fixed now, Andy? I’ve upgraded the news to WordPress 2.0.6 and added podPress support.

    Many thanks for the WordPress update, not least because the Akismet plug-in now catches all the spam comments 🙂

    Strangely, when I upgraded, Akismet said it had 547 comments waiting for approval. I suspect that this may be because I used a WordPress key that’s used elsewhere. Perhaps we need a unique key?

    Andy: that must now be a cached file in your RSS aggregator – nowhere is that file mentioned in the source of the comments feed (except in our comments, of course!) so I cannot see what, if anything, I can change to fix it for you. Hmm.

    I’ve tried it on a different machine I’ve never looked at the Bristol Wireless website with before. You’re right, it’s the cache on my RSS reader. IE7 displayed it correctly. There’s no logo now.
