Icon’s website celebrates first birthday

From news and events to jobs and announcements, offers a central destination for everything related to Icon

Icon's website was launched in August 2015 and is now an integral part of all our marketing and a place to find any information you may need about conservation and Icon. That’s a bold claim and if you think there are any gaps or indeed have any other suggestions, please send us your suggestions.

Over the last year we have been continuously making small improvements. We have recently enhanced the navigation of the site so that members can now access all the content of the site when logged on. The information that used to be only visible in the public part of the site is now also available on the main red menu bar in the members’ area.

There are also more main headings on the red bar now. 'Support Icon' is now under 'About us'. We are now displaying 20 items under News and 20 items under Events to improve ease of access. Of course, older news items and events are still available at the click of a button. In addition, more tweets are shown in the sidebar as well as more videos. (Note: we are always looking for videos of conservation interest so please do send us your video links.)

A key requirement when we scoped out the news site was that it would be easy to extend and improve without having to completely rebuild it. We have several extensions planned over the next year so watch this space!
