Local Veggie Web

Postby StevieP » Tue May 03, 2005 10:45 am

Local Veggie Web is a free content management system for active veggies to spread their local knowledge.

Here's the spill:

Does your local veggie group need a web site?
Do you not have the time or the knowledge to write one from scratch?
Maybe you can't afford one.

Is your current web site too hard to update?
Does your current web site not have the features you need?

Then Local Veggie Web is for you.

LVW is a web site building and maintenance tool designed especially for those
who run local veggie groups.

An example LVW site is http://www.tvvvs.makessense.co.uk

* There's NOTHING TO INSTALL, everything is done through your web browser.
* It's REALLY easy to use.
* Its FREE to use.
* NO web technology SKILLS are required.
* Hosting is FREE.
* A FREE sub domain is provided.
* FREE technical support.
* You will be integrated into a community of other ACTIVE veggies.
* You will be able to help guide the development of LVW.
* NEW FEATURES to make your job easier are frequently added.

Yes

It's not there to make money or anything nasty like that.

It's there to try and make local contacts more effective and bring others into the fold. Building a website is a very big undertaking if it not your job or hobby. If you try to do any thing flash, it just takes up some much time - so let that time spent be mainly mime and the rest of you can do the real work.

Since LVW's initial release there have been great changes to it especially on the configuration side.

Here is a tour of LVW:

from the perspective of the site you get, a little on how it works and how the configuration side works.

It doesn't get any easier than this to have a web site.

Just to say that this is the system that is being used to create the Vegan Runners website, amongst others.... I've had a play with it and it is very easy to use.

As skinny whippet says, it is very easy to use, and help is always available.

It's also what Vegan Bristol use. :D
