The website now has a forum built in. You don’t have to register for the forum. if you are a Town owner, you already have full access.

There are both public and private boards in the forum. Visitors can read public posts, but cannot create new ones or reply to topics.

Designed to provide a place where members can share ideas and seek help from other members, the forum can become a community of its own.

While it doesn’t have all the features of dedicated forum software, the ones you need most are there. You will find it simple to use, and it doesn’t slow down the website to any major degree.

Visit Aidensfield (Goathland), The Home of Heartbeat

HeartbeatThe town of Aidensfield, the fictional site where the TV series Heartbeat was filmed, has been added to the website.

In real life, the town is Goathland, but the locals are just as happy to have tourists call it Aidensfield. It is located in North Yorkshire, southwest of the real town of Whitby on England’s east coast.

This is an example page to show what you can do with your Town pages. It has a Home and a Contact page, which is what you get when you buy a town. You can add extra pages for whatever purpose you see fit. Advertising is an obvious one you could add, especially if you have a business of your own in town that you wish to promote.

You can find the town’s home page here.

SSL Protection Added

Secured Data TransmissionThe website is now secured with an SSL certificate. You can tell that by the green padlock and the highlighted https in the your browser’s address bar.

This means any data you enter on the site cannot be read by a third party, because it is encrypted. To anyone trying to see what you are typing, it would just be scrambled information. It also proves you are actually on the genuine Town Site website and not a clone someone may have created to steal your details.

The encryption starts as soon as you go to the Admin panel and continues until you log out. This means no one can steal your login details or anything you write while on the site. This is particularly important if you are using Wi-Fi, especially on a public or shared connection.

Visitors to the site are also protected when using your Contact form or commenting on your pages.

The website is now fully operational. All the necessary plugins have been installed and tested so that the site is secure, and each Town Owner can only edit their own pages or images.

Pricing has been set and you can pay by PayPal using your own account or a credit card. I have also included the option of using Bitcoins if you prefer.

A start has been made on the Guides, which will help people who are not familiar with WordPress, especially when using the editor. More will be added as I find the time. Google has begun showing hits for the site, which is always a good sign. If there was something wrong with the site, Google would pick it up.

So come and join us and start making your own Town pages. Now is the time to secure your town before someone else beats you to it. Whether it’s just for fun, or a way to advertise your business, having sole rights to your town means you can promote it any way you like.

Simply drop me a line through the Contact form, and I will get back to you to start things rolling.

Hello World!

If you have stumbled on this website and are wondering what it’s all about, then please check back soon. The site is a work in progress and will take a while before it is fully functional.

Basically it allows you to “buy” your town and create pages for it on the site. You may simply wish to promote your town, or decide which advertisements you want to include. If you own a business, it gives you a way to promote it without any competition.

The cost of owning a town will be affordable and be in the form of an annual subscription. You can cancel at any time.
