Newsnet Scotland was the first and largest of the Scottish online news blogs favouring independence. We provided technical assistance and maintainance to ensure the blog ran smoothly and added an RSS syndication facility. We contributed numerous graphics and articles as well as editorial services.
The site was built using using the Joomla content Management System (version 1.5) along with a commercial news template. It contained many thousands of articles, and tens of thousands of readers' comments, so needed regular maintenance to ensure it loaded quickly and performed well in search engines.
When the site was given over to ex BBC journalist Derek Bateman and his team in October 2014, we produced a permanent archive and backup to preserve all of the articles and images which had been hosted on the site to that date.
UPDATE: NewsnetScotland.com has now been re-implemented at Newsnet.scot.
