A few technical website updates

Today, I made a few updates to the website, mostly technical so that the site runs smoothly and reliably. You’ll notice a slight change to the social media sharing buttons, which by the way, you’re encouraged to use to share blog posts to your social media pages like Facebook.

I also cleaned up the right side bar. It’s quite a bit cleaner now and should be easier to use.

There is also now a contact page with our contact information and an email contact form should anyone want to send us an email.

Right now, the site continues to cost the troop nothing thanks to free web hosting from DreamHost. I’ve donated the WordPress theme, so that costs the troop nothing, either.

You’ll notice in the ‘downloads’ section of the right sidebar that you can now download the troop directory. You have to have the Acrobat Reader program to open and view it. Most people’s computer should already have the reader. You will also need a password to open the directory, which of course, we’re not going to publish on this website. You’ll have to contact either me or a troop leader to get the password.

I’ll soon be updating the events section of the website once I have a firm list of upcoming events, so look for that feature to be up and working soon.

This website currently ranks #1 on Google for both “colorado springs boy scout troop” and “colorado springs venture crew” … just a nice little bonus, eh?
