New look for ELO

East Lothian Orienteers - New Web Site

East Lothian Orienteers – New Web Site

We’ve given a complete makeover to the web site of East Lothian Orienteers (ELO).  Previously the orienteering club had a static html web site which took a good deal of time to maintain.  Their new web site, a responsive design which renders well in smart phones and tablets, has a number of new features in addition to being easier to maintain:

  • events calendar where forthcoming events can be posted with full details including linked location maps;
  • contact form;
  • subscribe form, where visitors can see up to receive automatic notification of new articles on the web site;
  • rss feeds from orienteering’s Scottish and British national bodies; and,
  • a gallery.

We hope that ELO’s new web site will prove no more difficult to navigate than the forests of East Lothian!
