Starting from 1st January 2020, the Museum is changing over to a new
Webmaster with a completely new web-site. I started the Museum
web-site in May 2000 using a free service on BT Internet. As the original
URL was not easy to remember, a URL router was kindly donated by Peter J.D.
Smith, (resident in Manila) who had earlier published some unofficial pages
about the Museum. This router was provided free through the company Name
Zero and enabled us to use the much simpler form of www.seafordmuseum.org.
On 14th February 2007, a new URL and hosting was purchased through
Streamline.net which gave more web facilities and e-mails. The old
addresses remained active for some months as a router to the new site but
were finally terminated in June 2008.
The later "blue version" with
a floating menu was introduced in November 2004 and updated to a multilevel
menu with rearranged pages on 22 November 2008.
The hosting by
Streamline.net was taken over by Fasthosts in February 2015.
January 2016, the whole site was converted to a "Responsive Design" to be
suitable for mobile phones and other small devices. This was achieved
using W3 Schools.com.
On 3rd August 2018, the whole site was
rearranged to use Bootstrap as it is a more recognised standard than W3.
When I started this site, I had no experience so it was "on the job
training" with a lot of assistance from professional web-site designers in
Seaford, to whom I am very grateful. This started me off and I was
soon running nearly 40 sites, mostly as sub-sites of my
for various clubs, associations or services in
The new Webmaster will be Nick Hing, who recently
joined the working group of volunteers with the responsibilities of
publicity. He will also take over the task of designing and printing the
monthly posters that are distributed around the town and published in the
Seaford Scene. I wish him every success in this venture.
