ILSR Website 2.0 –
- The Internet Service Provider decided, about September 1, 2010, to no longer support FrontPage Password Protection.
- Since that is essential to our web site, and since FrontPage is very old and inefficient, the decision was taken to move to WordPress software.
- An experimental domain (gtrain.org) was paid for by the ILSR board and an experimental website was created in order to learn the new system, it has been discontinued
- With excellent help from, and many hours invested by, a very experienced WordPress expert, the site was completely rebuilt on the experimental domain
- The rebuilt site was moved from the test site back to the original domain (indylargescaler.org) on May 23, 2011
