I decided in was time for a major update to the look-and-feel of the site. The small-font menu down the left was getting out of hand so I have got rid of it and replaced it with a more traditional drop-down version.
As a way of making some of the obscure pages accessible, I have started a 'random page' box which will appear at the top of each page. I am finding pages that even I didn't know about!
At the moment, this random page only includes rogues in the Newgate Calendar but I am in the process of expanding it and eventually it will include the entire site.
Note: if you are seeing some odd things with these little yellow boxes you will need to close the browser window and open a new one. Maybe even clear your cache. Otherwise some browsers don't cope all that well with the change.
Following on from my previous entry on the Weather, I have started a new section on the Natural World as it relates to the Georgian period. There is a new page on Phases of the Moon from 1700 to 1849 which may be of some use to those writing about the period.
As far as I can tell, all the pages on the site have made the transition to the new format successfully but there are too many for me to check them individually. Please let me know if spot anything odd.
