(CA) Forthcoming "EarlyMusicNews.org" Server Software Updates/Upgrades

Contributed by Admin on Dec 30, 2012
In the next few days, there will be much needed updates/upgrades to the EarlyMusicNews.org website software which will bring some performance improvements and website growth software options. Our apologies for any disruptions that may occur, if any.

*** The server changes should occur sometime during the first week in January 2013. ***

How will this affect you?

For most of the visitors to this site, you will not see any apparent differences except for perhaps some speed increase in the way the pages are served to you and perhaps some new options on some pages. However, most of the updates/upgrades are necessary for administrative purposes.

NOTE: At some point during the update period, the website will be offline until all of the updates are properly installed and the data properly migrated. If the site is offline, you will be greeted with a message warning you of such. The email service to admin will NOT be unaffected during the update process and your messages will still be queued up for review/posting.

With many thanks for your patience,

(CA) EarlyMusicNews.org Weblinks Pages

Contributed by Admin on Nov 17, 2012

A question often asked of EarlyMusicNews.org is of linking to our Weblinks pages rather than developing a weblinks page of your own. The answer in all cases is of a resounding “yes” and of our approval. 

Consider this, to-date, there are over 2600 early music related websites listed on our weblinks pages; these sites are indexed into 48 different categories; the index is verified once or twice yearly by our own weblinks bot in order to identify any dead links; there are tools for site visitor feedback as to the information of the weblinks as well as to identify any dead links that may have not been found by our bot. While this verification process is not perfect, it does help in keeping the weblinks URL data as accurate as possible.

Why would you want to use our weblinks pages as you very own weblinks page on your site? It releases you of the tedious task of maintaining such a page while still allowing your input of its content. You may propose any missing early music weblink(s) as well as identify changes of pre-existing weblinks’ content or URL.

So, if you wish, go ahead and feel free to link to our weblinks page. After all, the idea of organizing the EarlyMusicNews.org weblinks is to make the early music community known to our website visitors and help disseminate any other information that connects us to all that is of early music.

(CA) Forthcoming "EarlyMusicNews.org" Server Updates -- Please Update Your Links

Contributed by Admin on Jul 06, 2012
In the next few days, there will be a website server upgrade which will bring some performance improvements and website growth options. Our apologies for any disruptions that may occur, if any.

*** The server changes should occur sometime between the days of 11-14 July 2012 . *** )

How will this affect you?

For most of the visitors to this site, you will not see any apparent differences except for perhaps a speed increase in the way the pages are served to you. HOWEVER, where it will affect others are those who have linked to this site using its “http://www.MusiqueAncienne.org“ domain name. This domain will still re-direct you to this site, HOWEVER, the correct link to the site should be corrected to reflect the correct new server domain name: “http://www.EarlyMusicNews.org“.

If you have added us to your weblinks pages, please review the website address and correct these changes if necessary.  

NOTE: In the meantime, you may find that there may be fewer articles appearing on this site in the next few days as we prepare behind the scene for the upgrade. We should resume with our usual number of articles in the next 7-8 days. You may be interested in reviewing the workshop calendar dates and links, or, even browsing through our past articles.

With many thanks for your patience,

(CA) EarlyMusicNews.ca: "Submitters' Best Practices"

Contributed by Admin on Feb 03, 2012

Recently some have questioned on how to get on EarlyMusicNews.org “News” pages. While the answer to this may mean a little more chronicling of your activities on your website or of taking advantage of more photo opportunities (serious or candid) of your group, the end result may be gaining more “web presence” and gaining greater recognition of your achievements.

In the latest addition to the FAQ, I have tried to outline some suggestions on how you could make your site more “media friendly” in your favour. Feel free to follow the link if you are interested in contributing to this site OR you may be just curious and would like to read/add/share your comments -- Submitters - Website Best Practices

Happy contributing,

Contributed by Admin on Dec 11, 2011

The EarlyMusicNews.org International Calendars make their début this month. You will find the “Calendars” item on the right hand menu listings. Feel free to test these out. At this moment, only the “International Conferences and Workshops Calendar” is listed but more will be introduced at a later date. The calendars are Google Calendars and you should be able to add the events to your own Google calendar if you wish. Note that you can “filter” the various views of related calendars “on/off” by clicking on the “down” arrow found next to the “Agenda” tab.

Is your conference or workshop event missing? Send us a note and we will add it!
