Looking at getting a new Christmas jumper. What about this one?
Or this one?
Since 2006 we have been running a food blog consisting of restaurant reviews, recipes, wine tastings and general foodie blogging. It was the brainchild of Madsen Pirie and some of his friends. Its been on the back-burner since 2018 and we are looking to get it back up and running again. Would anyone be willing to contribute?
The site is being synced to a new server so images may not load.
9. Have enabled email notification and email subscription.
Should we enabled threaded comments here? Or is that too much?
Thanks for all the previous responses, we have tried to listen as much as possible.
Ill go through point by point so if you want to make any comment it’s a bit easier.
Just want to test everything before we start writing content again.
Have put together an election prediction spreadsheet. Just enter the amount of seats you think each party will win. Just add your name / twitter etc
Have setup averages etc.
Back with more questions.
We’re going to be launching the CT again in the next few days. We cannot just launch it on here as TW.com is gogle banned and we’d ideally like to earn some advertising revenue.
We have a few options, one is to use a simple theme on wordpress (like this one, but its quite limited and is no longer updated) i have uploaded all the old CT content to a test blog as a content store for now. If anyone wold like to suggest designs or themes i’ll take a look.
Ideally i would like to use the Ghost platform (ghost.org) instead of wordpress, its very very simple and very very fast but does not come with native comments… so..How do you feel about Disqus? We quite like the way it works and can turn off any comment moderation, as well as anonymous commenting. Some of you would have to make an exception for Java in this instance..
I’d like some input before rushing ahead.
As i posed earlier, we listened about making changes to the site and reverted back to the old site.
This begs the question, what changes should be made?
The theme / backend that is activated is 3 years out of date and hasn’t has any security updates or fixes for over three years.
If anyone has any suggestions for a new theme / template for wordpress, please comment below.
We dont want to tinker too much, but just catching up on maintenance…
We’re going to revive con tel, we are just trying to decide in what format. Some of you had some issues with the previous design and how it worked. The main reason is continental telegraph provided a (small but steady) income. TW is google banned for ads (probably because we use the word cunt too much) so cant really be monetised, unless we use affiliate programs which use Java and Tracking (which 90% of you savvy lot arent using). So this begs the question… what format to we revive it in?
Would you like us to use the TW theme, so its familiar and simply has different content? (but with google ads).
Suggestions please 🙂
& also – we noted and listened regarding the redevelopment of this site.
Google has ‘somewhat’ censored this blog and the CT.
Myself and a few others are looking at starting a political news and comment site…
Struggling for names and domains.
Heres a few ideas…
Any other suggestions?
Were now accepting submissions…

Anna Soubry must have been given maths lessons from Diane Abbott last night after claiming that 63% of people voted for remain (or rather didnt vote for leave..)
She says that 63% of people didnt vote for Leave (Remain + Didn't Vote).
Lets look at Broxtowe 2017:
Voted for Anna: 25983
Voted for Other (Lab + Libs etc): 29525
Didnt Vote: 18,385
