ByLaws Webmaster requirements: As of Jan. 2014 I have been doing it by hand coding html. You can also get George Newsome to make changes for you. On 1/11/2014 George Newsome wrote: Adrian's latest email is that the .asp site will be supported to the end of 2014. He keeps talking about simplified migration to drupal and I keep waiting to see what that means. I don't think it is essential to know Drupal because the whole point of a Content Management System (CMS) is to make it much easier to handle content without needing to do any html coding. I would hold the request for a new person for a while while National get their drupal act further together. With any luck, I can worry about the move to the drupal platform and your next web master should only need to handle content. Of course, if you can find someone who already knows about Drupal, I would love them to handle the whole Chapter move to drupal. H'm... maybe I should be asking for that myself! George
