Real West Dorset

In the past fortnight we've helped to make a few improvements to the Wordpress news site "Real West Dorset" -  This has included setting up and configuring YARPP (Yet Another Related Posts Plugin) and the Google News feed generator. They're now both working well, and YARPP in particular really enriches the content on each page.

We got to know Jonathan Hudston, the editor for Real West Dorset and the company he works for (Watershed PR - through working together for the Dorset County Show ( He popped over to talk about his Real West Dorset project and asked whether we could help. We've been delighted to do so.

The related posts plugin now lists up to 5 related stories or features at the foot of each article, allowing visitors to meander through related content hosted on the site more easily.

This is a really excellent way to keep older content in the public eye. Normally old content would only be visible in date-ordered archive lists, but with this you can see articles from any point in time, so long as they're on a similar topic. It means that all the hard work that goes into writing news stories has far greater public presence and longevity.

Do take a look at the site yourself, it's a great read!


New Website For Osmington Village Hall

We’re pleased to announce that we have just launched a NEW website for Osmington Village Hall. Osmington Village Hall came to us needing a brand new website as the old one had been taken offline. We built the website from the ground up taking a fresh new approach alongside Osmington Village Hall.

Relaunch Of Weymouth And Portland Info Website

We’re excited to announce that we have relaunched the Weymouth and Portland Information website. The website is an internal project of ours and one that’s needed attention for a while. The main aim of the redesign was to make the website responsive and easier for users to navigate around.

New Website For R-em Therapies

We have just launched a new website for Emma at R-EM Therapies. R-EM Therapies is a new client of Alacrify’s that we’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with. R-EM came to us needing a new website as the old site was starting to show its age. The old site also wasn’t responsive and was also unsecure which negatively impacted the site's search engine rankings as well as being hard for users to access on their mobiles and tablets.

New Website For Ecs Special Projects

We have just launched a new website for ECS Special Projects. This is another website of ours that we originally built many years ago. The old site stood the test of time and still performed very well in Google searches, but the time had come for the look and feel to be updated in line with more contemporary design approaches.
