Don’t Forget Me -Update News

Hello and Welcome to Sweeney’s Blogs!

Today’s blog is all about my Alzheimer’s Awareness page, Don’t Forget Me. Don’t Forget Me was the first website that I ever created and is a website that I hand-coded myself. I am going to be converting the website from a hand-coded page to a WordPress hosted site. By converting the page, it will be a lot easier to update and manage the page as well as track how it is doing, performance-wise.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with my page. Don’t Forget Me was a website that I first created for a project as part of my HNC Computing and Information Systems. After completing the project I decided to keep the page going and I was going to try and update it as much as I could. I decided to make an Alzheimer’s Awareness site as my grandmother has severe Alzheimer’s and I wanted to help families going through similar things to what mine has gone through/are yet to go through.

I ran into a few problems with the old page as I was limited in updating it to my knowledge of HTML, CSS, JQuery and JavaScript. Due to differing workloads, I did not have time to update the site as much as I would have liked. Now as the page will be on WordPress I will be able to update the site as and where I need to. It will be much easier to tailor content to what people need and want to see and will also look a lot better.

I am not 100% sure of all the content that is going to be on the page yet as it is still a working progress. What I cant tell you is that there is going to be a page on what is Alzheimer’s, a page on support techniques and a page on where you can go to get help, among others. I am working towards getting the original URL for Don’t Forget Me over to this page but it is going to take a few days.

Here is the link for Don’t Forget Me: https://www.dontforgetme.org.uk/

This link will take you to the old page until the update has passed through and it has been updated to the new page. If you want to see the old page for a few more times it will be available through the link above. If you want to see it after that get in touch with me and I’ll happily send you the other link!

That’s all I want to talk about in today’s blog! What do you all think? Are you excited about the new changes coming to Don’t Forget Me? Is there any content that you want to see on the page? Is there anything you don’t want to see? Let me know what you think of these questions and any other thoughts you have in the comments or through our Facebook page, Sweeney’s Blogs or Don’t Forget Me!
