The planned updates have yet to materialise due to other commitments. However, I have not forgotten the long list I set myself. I am looking to include some more studies I have carried out and add more content to the website.
I'll update again soon when I have more news.
As stated in the previous entry 'Kyren Web' was transformed into 'Lairs' at the end of January. The new design was implemented without incident and content is being included at a steady rate.
In the past few months (apologies for not updating sooner) the photo gallery has been under development with phase one well on it's way. The final few requirements are being implemented and the gallery will be released shortly. It must be noted however that space is limited so accounts will be given on a first come, first served basis. More details to follow on phase two (planned to contain an offline creation facility). Comments will be appreciated on this service.
The Neighbourhoods are quiet at the moment containing only a few sites although they are in place. A change in the conditions means the Neighbourhoods will also be used as a kind of directory listing with websites as well as redirects. I'm looking to promote these later in the development period.
Some time has been set aside to add content to the Internet section which is partially completed. Many more studies will be included as time progresses and your help to verify their accuracy will be an asset (I will always act on constructive criticism). I am trying to write the guides in simple language so everyone can understand.
So, to summarise, the new layout of the website is split into 5 main sections: Sitemap, Website Design Tools, Information, Services and About Lairs. Website Design Tools contains Colour Guides, HTML Guide, Picture Source and a list of useful Resources. The Information section contains projects and studies (as mentioned above). The Services section contains the Neighbourhoods/Dwellings, a list of External Services, Photo Gallery and Redirects.
Any suggestions or comments will be gratefully received and my thanks go to everyone who has been involved in the transition of the site.
Kyren Web is now Lairs and the new design has been released. Over time I will continue to bring the tools inline with the design and add additional sections.
Hope you like the new site. Enjoy browsing!
It's been a very busy year with work and College commitments so it has been decided to change the format of Kyren Web to reduce the workload required to maintain the website. This falls in line with financial difficulties allowing streamlining of the services available.
With this in mind both web-heaven.co.uk and hellbound.co.uk will be discontinued. The services offered within each of these websites will be transferred to lairs.co.uk although the website will be a single section rather than 3 areas as it is currently. This will allowed more concentrated development on the website including enhanced content and avoid duplication.
Continuation of the neighbourhoods onto the new combined website is yet to be decided and provision of redirects will be suspended until the new website is in place. Once a decision has been made on the content of the new website details will be posted here. Any suggestions or comments will be gratefully received.
My apologies for any inconvenience caused but this is a necessary step which should be implemented early in the new year.
Unfortunately it has been a long time since my last update and I can't apologize enough. It's been frantic with one thing or another and I am hoping to make some more visible changes shortly. Validation is still continuing and I am still importing in the new template for consistency.
I have a lot of plans about what I want to do such as the admin section I would like to add to allow changes to be made to the redirect settings plus, of course, the picture gallery which is somewhat devoid of pictures at the moment. I should have some time soon as I will shortly be on holiday so I will update again then.
I have decided to dispense with the noticeboard on Kyren Web as it serves little purpose so I will add the dates contained therein to this community (just in case someone is interested).

From now on I hope to update the community whenever I make a chance which alleviates the need for the noticeboard. Instead I will have a link to this community.
It has been a long time since I updated this community about the progress I have made on the website. Unfortunately I have not had a lot of spare time to work on the website but that should change soon.
I am not planning any radical format changes this year to the site but I am planning to work on improving the content. I have been doing some research and am looking to get something in place by the end of September. I will keep you updated.
I have developed a template for the website in general which should make the overall look more consistent and also reduce development time. Testing should also be more thorough so there will be less broken links than there have been recently.
Hope you are still enjoying the website.
