Old website

From December 2007 to June 2012 this website was produced on iWeb and hosted by MobileMe. During this time the website received nearly 25,500 hits. In June 2012 I migrated the site to WordPress.


Unfortunately, in moving from iWeb to WordPress I lost all of the comments that people had made over the years. If I have time, I will try to restore them. However, as things stand, there are no comments on posts before June 2012. Apologies to those who have commented at different times.

    Dear Prof. Elgie,
    Is there any way one could have access to the old website? I must confess that it was more user-friendly (at least for me). There were lots of good posts that I used to revise for my research.
    On the other hand, congratulations for the blog. It is really a piece of work.
    Yours sincerely,

      Hi Fernando,

      Unfortunately, Apple shut down their hosting service. So, I had to move it to somewhere else. I still prefer the look of the old blog, but this one is probably more user-friendly.

      All of the old posts are still available on this site. So, nothing has been lost, apart from the comments from the old site. It should also be easier to access the old posts because you can now identify countries and themes much more quickly in the sidebar than you could in the previous version. In addition, all of the papers, downloads etc that used to be on the front page of the old blog are now available in the headers. (You’ve probably gathered that!)

      Plus, there’s now the Facebook page, which provides a much more efficient way of posting current events.

      Thanks for your kind words. Much appreciated.
