I’m looking to reduce my commitments by handing over the role of CLASP Webmaster to a willing and able volunteer.
The role involves managing CLASP’s online assets which are:
– the claspweb.org.uk website, domain names and hosting (all in one account);
– the claspweb Yahoo mailing groups;
– the CLASP Google Drive account;
– the CLASP Vimeo account.
I also keep an eye on the CLASP Facebook page: Gina Brown runs that, but occasionally she welcomes support.
The claspweb.org.uk website is a WordPress site: it’s a relatively straightforward one, but a reasonable knowledge and experience of WordPress is needed to edit it. The Whitehall and Local People websites are native html sites (produced in Dreamweaver) stored on the same server as the main website: they are essentially archives, and should not need editing.
All the accounts are owned by CLASP – at the moment Dave Hayward (as Chair) is the named owner, and he takes care of all payments, so that is not required of the webmaster.
I will be happy to be an advisory backstop for as long as necessary for the new webmaster to feel confident to carry on alone – but I am not willing to give training in any aspect of the technical management, for example, WordPress.
