Content Updates: Articles & Treks

Thursday, Jun 06, 2013 at 15:58


This is the first of what I hope will be regular, maybe daily, blogs itemising the various content updates of relevance to the audience as maintained by Michelle Martin - ExplorOz Content & Marketing Director. Here's a quick catch up with some things that have been done over the past week (not complete, but hey, I have to start somewhere and its a task to remember to log it in the first place).

Tues 21/5/13
Major changes to the article category structures as follows:
Top level – added 3 new categories (1. Power & Electrics – moved from Vehicles, 2. Navigation – moved from On the Road, 3. Communications – moved from On the Road).
Within On the Road – renamed some categories and moved around some articles
Within Vehicles – renamed some categories and moved some articles into different categories
Within Caravan & Camper Trailers – renamed some categories and moved some articles into different categories.

Removed the "ExplorOz" category from being counted in the "Most Popular" articles scroller on Articles Index page.
