New look to to the Trainers Directory was created by Steve H
I have re-worked the Trainers Directory and it now has a different "look and feel". Currently it still functions in broadly the same way, but am happy to receive any feedback on the new layout, positive or negative!

This change will actually allow me to upgrade the whole underlying software that the site runs on, something I plan to do soon. One of the benefits of this will be that I can then enhance the Directory further to be able to, for example, show all trainers who would actually cover a particular region, regardless of where they happen to be based, i.e. where they would be prepared to travel to. This functionality requires a trainer to be able to be associated with multiple regions, something the current system does not support.

Whether we do actually implement that is something that can be discussed in due course, but at least we'll have the possibility. There will be other benefits to the upgrade, but these will be mainly behind-the-scenes technical things to ensure the site stability & security into the future.

Hi Steve,
Have just checked my profile and the information currently seems to be duplicated, but there are no contact details for me. I realise this might be because the changes you are making are still work in progress; and in case not it looks like something needs a bit more adjustment!

thanks again for all your work on the website.
with best wishes
Lucy

Hi Lucy.
Apologies for the duplication, that's fixed now. A link to your contact page was there, at the end of your details (the first set).

For the time being a person will need to have registered with the Forum to contact a Trainer - this is slightly different to before and I'd like to be able to change that in the future, but in the meantime it's not necessarily a bad thing.

If you'd like any of your details changed just PM me or drop me an email.

Steve.
