Alderford web site updated to Drupal 5.x

It's been a very long evening, but I just released the new web site to production. domain name service problem fixed

We had problems with the settings of our domain registry that caused this web site to be temporarily inaccessible. These problems have been corrected at the source, and the change should propagate to all ISPs within 48 hours. This also affects the Alderfolk email list.

Alderford Web Site Upgraded

The Alderford web site has been completely rebuilt from scratch using a content mangement system (CMS) called "Drupal". Drupal is an Open Source free software package that can be downloaded from .

The site isn't finished yet. In particular, Drupal's photo albums are really primitive compared to what I had on the old site, so I'm actually going to build my photo album code (with enhancements, such as the navigation aids suggested by Ailith) into a new module for Drupal. I'll then release that module as freeware to become part of Drupal itself.

I hope you enjoy the new site. I will be enabling features one by one over the next few days, as I fine-tune the software.
