About our website

The website is maintained by a small voluntary committee, the Woodsworth Website Committee. Committee membership has a lot of overlap with the Editorial Committee, a good fit, since both committees are in the business of communicating co-op news and information.

Our site is hosted on Namespro. We use WordPress, a free and open-source content management system (CMS) to build and develop our website. Our website is regularly and automatically backed up. Our site is https compliant. Additionally we use a variety of plugins like WordFence to secure our site from malicious attacks.

Although you can find content by using Recent Posts or select a topic in Committees & Topics, we also have a search engine (Relevanssi) that can retrieve your search term from PDFs. The site also has a tag cloud and a sitemap.

Many posts are marked Protected – these are password-protected. These are posts where members’ names are mentioned. Members have access to these posts, but not the general public. Webpages that are of public interest or useful to potential members are not passworded.

Our co-op website has been selected as a runner up by CHFT in their annual awards (2018). It is nice to be recognized!

Finding Stuff on the Website

A tipsheet on finding information on our website. For mobile use, see below.

using the coop website tip sheet march 2018

If you are using a cellphone, the content will all be there but organized a bit differently. The same is true for an iPad if held vertically.

The navigation menu will be at the bottom of the screen. Scroll down. Or better yet, click on Menu to display it first, in a list, rather than a horizontal menu.

And a bonus! You can find the Weekly by month and year using the date picker, the bottom item on  sidebar.

Don’t forget, members can sign up to receive an email whenever something new is posted on our website.


J. S. Woodsworth’s Grace Before Meat


For your holiday celebrations and gatherings, a non-secular grace written by our namesake, James S. Woodsworth.

We are thankful for these and all the good things of life. We recognize that they are a part of our common heritage and come to us through the efforts of our brothers and sisters the world over. What we desire for ourselves, we wish for all. To this end, may we take our share in the world’s work and the world’s struggles.
