New Blog

Monday, August 18th, 2014

Ever since I tried to update one of my photo galleries and killed it in the process, I have been wary of updating the versions of software running on the site.

Having been forced to do an upgrade of some background software to get a new package running, this temporarily knocked out this blog (and another blog that I run) due to compatibility issues with the new background software.

Having got this blog back, I decided that I should install a fresh version of WordPress on the site which will update automatically. I also found out (thank you Google) how to copy over the posts etc to the new blog.

This is located at: http://industrialheritageireland.info/Blog/

There are still a few touches left to fix the new version, but I would appreciate comments from users on the new blog, which should have exactly the same content as this one as of today - 18th August 2014.

Going forward, I will be posting in it, rather than this one, so change your bookmarks to http://industrialheritageireland.info/Blog/. This site will be removed once I finished checking that all has transferred over to the new site correctly.

Site update

Wednesday, January 1st, 2014

Another year and it is time to review what I have achieved in 2013 with the site and outline plans for 2014.

In 2013, I finally transferred all of the book reviews (railway and non railway related) out of WordPress to the IH Wiki. In doing so, I have created multiple categories for the latter as follows:

*Book Reviews - Alcohol

*Book Reviews - Canal

*Book Reviews - Extraction

*Book Reviews - Marine

*Book Reviews - Other

Railway book reviews are located at:

*Book Reviews - Railway

The other big task completed was to update all the open railway stations on the Irish Rail and NIR networks to the new format, where the information is stored in an offline Microsoft Access database but structured therein to allow the semi-automatic creation of a webpage with all the relevant information.

For 2014, plans include:

* Updating all of the Open Railway lines by means of a site visit to confirm what exists on the ground in 2014
* Adding further book reviews - both for new books purchased but also for those out of print books in my possession that I have not reviewed
* Continuing to incorporate maps produced by me throughout the site.
* Finish the process of transferring information from WordPress to the IH Wiki. The WordPress site (where you are currently) will remain as a blog for IH related matters and for website updates such as this.
