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 and the full website. There is a tag cloud and a sitemap.
Many posts are marked Protected – these are password-protected. These are posts where members’ names are mentioned or there is sensitive information. 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!
