Bedale Community Minibus are a Charitable Incorporated Organisation providing affordable transport for elderly and disabled people, local community groups, and others in need in Bedale and the surrounding areas. Their site was launched in 2018.
They wanted their site to be as easy to navigate as it could be, and as a charity offering a service to the community, usability was a priority. They wanted to keep only relevant information on their site and be able to edit and update information easily.
In 2022 Bedale Community Minibus approached us for a full site overhaul from our Web Consultation Service as their site had started to become cluttered. We updated their site, and employed some of our helpful features to make their site as easy to use and update as possible.
Utilising WCS Features
Recent News Stories
Recently, we designed a new way of displaying recent news stories on pages. Originally, we displayed News stories on the right hand side of the page, on a rolling feed. Now we have added the option to display them directly within the content of the page.
We optimised this feature for Bedale Community Minibus by adding their recent news to their homepage, along with writing some instructional material about how to make the most of WCSs News feature.
Using Hidden Pages
Hidden pages are pages that are visible to the public, but only through the link- meaning that they do not show as an option in the Main Navigation Menu. This helps to keep the site easy to navigate, and avoids unnecessary clutter on the site.
"We were interested in WJPS' Web Consultation Service as we knew our site was not as easy to navigate as we thought it could be. We are very happy with the work undertaken by WJPS, especially their fast response time, understanding of what we were looking for, and quick turn around time. Bee was very helpful in the process, and helped us each step of the way. We are very happy with our sites new look, and would recommend the service to anyone looking for a fresh start on their website too."
