The Project – Background

Over 700 u3as use SiteBuilder as the website tool to publish and publicise their activities.  This easy-to-use versatile system has been built and maintained by a very small number of dedicated u3a volunteers for over 10 years.
In consultation with the SiteBuilder volunteers a decision to seek an alternative was taken in 2022. We wanted all the qualities of the old system plus the potential to add more features and enhancements  in the future. The WordPress system software was selected as the basis for the SiteBuilder replacement.  It is an open-source set of programs that is straightforward, flexible and scalable, with the potential to provide additional ‘plug-ins’ for added functionality going forward.
WordPress software is a very popular choice for website creators, it is used by at least 40% of website designers worldwide.

The new u3a system has been named u3a SiteWorks

The Project – Background
