We’re working on restoring our archives from 1992 onwards and rebuilding the VicNews website in time for VicNews’ 30th anniversary and official re-opening on 1 August 2022.
Why not a staging site?
Whilst we were once up there in coding, that was a long time ago and to test, re-intergrate and rebuild lost files from the previous versions of VicNews and Kinglake Ranges News we’ve found it much easier to work with a live site to integrate APIs, past content and features, including those built under AMIGADOS and WORKBENCH 2.0.
As we’re also integrating features and news from the original AMIGA-built version of VicNews and it’s Professional Page 3.0 (AMIGA 2000HD+) print version, it is impossible to test these with a staging site.
Whilst news publishing commences today, we’re not officially operating until 1 August 2022.
