Welcome to the new website for the Valentine Neighborhood Association.
The geek speak
The site was developed using WordPress a very popular open source “Content Management System (CMS).” The benefits of using WordPress include the ability to have multiple board members update the content, and the large community of developers who create “plug-ins” which provide extra functionality.
We have also created an online store using Square. This will give us the ability to pay dues online, accept credit cards at events, and to sell Valentine shirts and mugs online.
The current photos used in the headers were taken from various available photos that are not ideal for this. So we would love neighbors to send us quality photographs that are designed for use in the header. This means they must be of Valentine people, places or events. They need to be 1600 pixels wide and 230 pixels high. They should also account for the logo shield blocking part of the left half, meaning the significant part of the photo needs to be on the right. If you have any, please attach them to this email.
