Many years ago we were asked by Friends of the Earth Scotland to develop a template website which could be used by their local groups.
At the time the options for content management systems were limited, so we opted for building a bespoke system, using a basic but very handy tool called SnippetMaster to provide a visual editor for site content areas.
Friends of the Earth Tayside used our system for several years, but it was showing its age and in need of updating. We offered to move their site to WordPress free of charge.
The new site offers many features not available with the old system, such as an events system, as well as providing a more user-friendly interface for site administration.
