Kennington’s new website

Welcome to Kennington’s new look website!

We hope you like the look of this new layout and find it easy to discover the things you need to know about the village.

New features

The site is designed to be more intuitive and more interactive than previously. Here are some of the new features that will make your visit to the site more effective.

Graphical content

The new design maximise use of photos and other images to make the reading experience more vivid. If you have your browser set not to show images, you will definitely lose out!

The galleries showing photos of events and places in the village now allow you to view full-size images, although they first appear as thumbnail reductions, to save download time.

RSS feed

rssBy clicking on the logo above right, you can subscribe to a newsfeed. This means that whenever the Kennington Village website is updated, your newsfeed reader will automatically be updated too.

To use the newsfeed, you will need a reader. The good news is … you’ve probably got one already. Most modern browsers, including Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, Safari and Chrome automatically check for feeds when you visit a website, and display the orange RSS icon when they find one. Many of them allow you to add RSS feeds as a browser favourite or bookmark folder, automatically updating them with the latest content.

Search the site

At the head of the right column, you will see a search box. Type any word, part word or combination of words and you’ll be given a list of pages that include your search text.

Navigation

At the top of each page you will find ‘breadcrumbs’ so that you can see how the current page relates to others that might be relevant to your visit.

Site map

There’s a link from the Home page to a site map which shows all the pages included in the site. Naturally, this is updated every time the site is added to, so you can always see at a glance if there is a page devoted to the subject you’re interested in.

Comment on any page

You can make a comment on any of the content on the site, including comments others have made. To do this, you need to be logged in as a subscriber. The first time you try to log in you will be asked to register on the site: enter a user name and your email address and a password will be emailed to you. Thereafter you can log in with the user name and passord; you can change the password if you like to make it more memorable.

Your comments may not appear immediately since all content is moderated.

Update your pages

If you represent an organisation in the village, you can choose to update your own pages on this website. Contact the webmaster to arrange to be established as an author on the site.

Generally, creating and updating pages is similar to using word processing software. You can preview your page before it appears live. You can even arrange for a page to be published from a future date.

Work in progress

Please bear with us as some of the content is transferred from the old version of the site.

Your comments will be particularly welcomed. Click on the link below to log in (or register if you haven’t alreaday done so) and have your say.
