Preparing for 2017

As we the end of the year draws close, and we look ahead to the coming year, it is time to assess where we are at and where we are going.

The past six months have been challenging – new server equipment, moving the server hardware to a new hosting location, new ISP, and dealing with physical issues (one of which is ongoing.) We have just upgraded to the latest stable release of WordPress, and a dozen or so of the opensource and commercial plugins, themes, etc. We have added a Piwik server for counties which wish to monitor their site traffic, and increased storage for all sites dramatically.

In the next six months we hope to add an installation of WebTrees, a collaborative genealogy presentation and management software, and an authentication platform which will work across our primary services (but has yet to be determined.)
