KRLX is switching to WordPress!

The main KRLX website (krlx.org) will be switching from Joomla to WordPress for content management on Monday, May 2, 2016. The transition will start at noon and I hope the bulk of the work will be done by 5pm.

KRLX board members are testing WordPress this week, and there is a plugin to move all of our content over from Joomla (hooray!), so the transition next week should be fairly straightforward, just like how everything else moved to Goldenrod. This will mean a new look and feel to the site, as well as better content management from our perspective.

As I mentioned previously, I hope to integrate our new record library cataloging system into the new site, so that users have a seamless experience seeing what we have available in our collection. The cataloging process is going to take a long time, but when it’s done, it will mean anyone can search for and borrow our collection of music to play during their shows. Additionally I will soon start work on integrating SAS into WordPress for better management in the future.

The site will be taken offline during this time, but I hope you’ll agree that it’ll be worth it. The Record Libe cataloging system will also be unavailable briefly, although service should be restored quickly. The stream will NOT be affected – you can still listen at radio.krlx.org, but at least initially, there won’t be a link there from the main site.

I hope you enjoy our new site – the board has been hard at work testing it, and we think you’ll enjoy it.
