I came across an excellent site for sample Terms & Conditions for your website.I created some Terms and Conditions using a Teamplate form Contractology http://www.contractology.com. There are plenty of other options out there but they allow you to modify it and use it for free as long as you leave in a 'credit' line - a small price to pay. You can pay $15 for a license and then remove the credit line.Hope this can help someone.Richard

Another huge milestone achieved today! The technical side of my website is now complete and now I can concentrate on building content. The past week has seen me grapple with a few major technical challenges but now they are done and I am sooooooo excited. I have:Added the Gravity Forms plugin and built a form that accepts information from users as they walk a track and then sends them the answers when they submit the form.Added the Search and Filter Plugin that enables users to select a spec

I have just built a new website over the past few weeks providing detailed information, GPS mapping etc of walks in our city.

They have also said t

I have just commenced a new niche website celebrating the work of my father-in-law who has built bush walking tracks in our city for the past 30 years. As the city has expanded and developers have left significant patches of bush to be enjoyed he has followed through and designed and built walking tracks - quite amazing and something to leave as a legacy to our wonderful city, Auckland, New Zealand.This website has been a different challenge as I have tried to make it incredibly user friendly.

I'm on another whole learning curve - integrating Google Maps into my website.This is not just static information of a location but getting GPS tracking from my sports watch downloaded and then importing via .gpx files into a Google Map. Yesterday I managed to get step one completed - I have a map on my website with the walking track I walked on Wednesday!I now have a couple more action steps to complete:1. Review some more of the WP Plug-ins that work with Google Maps - so far they seem too l

Well - I've been waiting for this time - more time!My youngest girl has finally started some full days at pre-school last week and this now gives me 6 hours, 3x per week of my own time. I am very excited about being able to get stuck into websites and increase the quality of the sites and the amount of blogs I am producing.I have so wanted to do this since being here at WA but just have not had the hours with 4 young ones and a wife who is a surgeon and needs my support so she can be at her be
