Welcome to the new and improved Fiddaman Australia website.
In 2003, even before it became “fiddaman.info”, I started the original website using Microsoft FrontPage. In 2018, the site was reconstructed using WordPress, although some components of the old site still remain. To complete the picture, I have also included some valuable family and personal history pictures prior to 2003.
For direct access to the most recent month’s stories, you can copy this shortcut and paste it into your bookmarks bar:
The Recent Months area (above, to your right) shows only the most recent 5 months of news and pictures. Each month is what WordPress calls a post. While WordPress lists them in reverse order, with most recent at the top, the content of each post is in chronological order, with links at the bottom of each month to the previous and next months, so that you can easily jump to the next one and continue the flow.
The All Content selector (also to your right) is a drop-down which takes you to all of the posts. Because the archive is a collection of everything published in that month (which on this site is just the one post), you don’t see the links to previous and next. However, you can get these and follow the flow by clicking on the shortened TITLE of the post up near the top of the page, just under the “month”, which takes you to the POST for that month. Clear as mud, right?
The Timeline Highlights page, just under the Pages marker, takes you to all of the events that have happened along the way, which just happens to be a great way for me to track down an actual date when something happened, such as starting a new job or moving house.
Finally, there are a few other things on the right that are either really cool, or useful to me or to the people who search for them.
To finish off this page, a quote from way back where the site started:
“You don’t heal from the loss of a loved one because time passes, you heal because of what you do with the time.” Carol Staudacher
I would venture to suggest that I have used it well.
