Site Update

We updated www.stnicholascenter.org to a new platform in September 2019. Here are changes that make the site more user-friendly and functional.
  • The new design is responsive so it displays and works well on all kinds of devices.
  • Old bookmarks and links to pages will still take you to current pages. Links to gallery, gazetteer and event modals will need to be updated. To link to a modal, right click  the item on its index page and click “Copy link address.”
  • Some sections have been reorganized; whenever a section gets too big, it is divided into smaller segments to make it easier for you to find what you want. When this happens, some old links won’t work anymore. 
  • The new site search works, though it will be further refined. Searches are not case sensitive. More search info and tips
  • Search Box
  • The New Search lists all new and updated articles and lists for the current year. The NewSearch link is on the top of the right sidebar on nearly all pages and links from the search results page (on smaller screens it will be at the bottom of articles). If you want to go to it directly the address is /pages/newsearch/ or use “See all” on the home page. Updated articles aren’t showing now, as it thinks nearly all articles were updated as their formatting was changed.
  • New Search
  • Significant or interesting updates will be posted on our Facebook page. To get updates join us on Facebook.
  • Find us on Facebook
  • Print format is still automatic. The banner prints on just the first page; the sidebar or footer material doesn’t print at all.
  • Print page
  • We are now using a lightbox for our “pop-up” images. Most site photos and illustrations click to a larger version; they will show above the grayed out page. All linked images on the page may be clicked through in sequence. Images that don’t enlarge may be enlarged with your fingers on mobile devices.
  • Pop-up image
  • The Google translator is now nicely positioned at the top of the left sidebar on every page. It translates into 103 languages. It works even if the Google Toolbar translate feature doesn’t work in your browser.
  • Google Translator
    These are the most obvious changes. There are others, mostly affecting inner site workings, making it easier and more efficient to update.

    Please email if you find things that aren’t right. The site is HUGE and, even though I’ve gone through it carefully, repeatedly, there are still things that have been missed. So, please do let us know if you find things that are not right—missing images, duplicate article titles, garbled text, wrong fonts, words wrongly showing glossary definitions (such as “see” as a verb, rather than the noun), etc.

    Thank you ever so much! I hope you enjoy our changes and continue to visit www.stnicholascenter.org.
