This product has been developed on, and ideally for use on Microsoft desktop platforms. It may not look good on smartphones, and a variety of issues can occur when users try to access information on Apple products, sadly considering how popular they have become.. Your editor is at least for the moment concentrating on content rather than platform accessibility, and apologises to all you Steve Jobs fans. Should you encounter access issues please contact us – assuming of course you can get this far…
As part of the testing process, we have thus far (March 2021) found more than one browser/operating system issue, as follows: These may of course be surmountable, but we are unsure.
- Safari on Apple Mac – possibly also an issue with Safari/Microsoft
- Chrome on iPad
- Opera on Microsoft – only one user but unpredictable results
The browser/operating system combinations through which the website has been accessed are as follows:
- Chrome on Microsoft 8 and 10
- Edge on Microsoft 10
- Chrome on Apple Mac / Mac Book Pro
- Firefox on Microsoft 10
- Android 5.1.1 on Samsung Galaxy J3 (although the photo galleries don’t work)
Finding what you are looking for
Hopefully we can help you out sort out your conundrum, issue, perplexity, confusion, difficulty, obfuscation, bewilderment, but then again, possibly not. We have various solutions to help you find your way: Firstly there is the ‘Search’ facility, which is on the top right of each page. Try it; it works, but only if you have some clue of what you are looking for. One issue with WordPress search is that it simply lists the topics where your keyword entry exists, requiring a search of each topic to locate any matches. Secondly, we have an Index and Glossary page, which hopefully will explain what is in the history; you might choose to use the Search facility thereafter… Thirdly, we have a menu structure and explanations in each menu item which hopefully will act as their own ‘help’ facility. Your last resort (before sighing, then signing off ) is to contact us.
The What’s missing page may help – the project is very much WIP, and will be for some time. If you have info. which you think should be added, contact us.
e.g. photos, articles, videos, jumps to other pages etc. In general, these will be shown as bold dark red. Apologies from your web-editor if any have been missed…
Photo Gallery tips
Some users have mentioned that they seem to be unable to exit the full-page photo gallery display without closing the page. Galleries can be closed by clicking the small ‘x’ at the top right of each page. An individual image can be revealed by clicking the ‘View full size’ at the bottom right of each gallery page.
Glossary and Index
A Glossary page is available here, and an Index should be available in due course
Other Help topics will be available soon…
