[The upgrade is now provisionally scheduled for 14th & 15th September and whilst we have met the lower end of the costs, anything extra would be much appreciated. Costs are forecast to run between £350-£500.
2019 has been a big year for the CookingBites.com site because we have not only moved over to a secure site (green padlock and https://), but we are also in the process of upgrading the software platform that the site runs on. This is a much needed and overdue upgrade that will help with our appearance and useability on mobile platforms. But as with a lot of things, there is a cost involved because a number of the add-ons we use on this site need to be upgraded or replaced. And the truth is that this site falls a long way short of generating enough revenue through advertising and Skimlinks. The difference comes straight out of my pocket and this year is a much more expensive year than most, due to the upgrade.
