New look to The Bunch, however we still have the old and largely obsolete 'Wheelers' Strava embedded on the Home Page.  

Can this be replaced by the JWCC (official) Strava link which is the accepted standard for recording member activities?

Strava Widgets on the homepage have been updated with the official feeds.

Some background on the activity of the last couple of days.

We agreed to do the forum upgrade to the latest software in the last week, this in itself was a fairly trivial process but it was necessary to keep the forum on supported software versions.

In order to run the latest forum software we had to also update the website itself which was badly in need of repair. Bits were broken, stuff wasn't being updated and the software it was running was also well out of date and insecure. We've very quickly put together what is really just a landing page to replace it, running on the latest software, but crucially one that updates itself by using feeds from The Bunch (General and Club Runs as a separate feed), Twitter, Facebook and the Strava stuff.

The Jets twitter account looks like it's frequently updated so we're actually using the tweets to build the latest news section on the Jets landing page. We can do the same with the Wheelers if the account is active. This means you don't even need to access the CMS of the website to update the latest news, just do it all via Twitter.

We can add and built on this over time with additional information and features.

Happy to take on board any comments, suggestions or issues with anything we've done Hello,beer!!
