All About Community Radio is a brand new website dedicated to all forms of community radio.
Community stations may broadcast on a specific community radio license from Ofcom, but can also include digital stations, hospital radio stations, student radio, and other community focused services such as armed forces stations or religious stations.
There are two main sections to this website:
- Station Directory: This is a summary of all known community radio stations in the UK, which fit into the categories mentioned above.
- Station Guide: An in-depth look at individual stations.
What was Scott’s Radio Site?
Scott’s Radio Site was a radio website which closed early in 2020, due to the continuing loss of commercial local radio.
By which point a network of websites had formed with the same owner also responsible for Radio In Malta and All About Digital TV, so Scott’s Radio Site became the umbrella name for this network.
To reduce costs when launching All About Community Radio, the previous web address for Scott’s Radio Site was reused.
Although I prefer to build websites from scratch using HTML and CSS, this one uses the WordPress content management platform, in order to reduce development time.
This website, designed around a customised version of the WordPress 2015 theme, is highly responsive and can be viewed on desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile phones with various screen sizes. However, it is worth noting that some content may not display correctly on small screens.
The website is tested using Mozilla Firefox and Opera browser on both Windows 7 and Windows 10, and is believed to be highly compatible. As Opera is based on Google Chrome, Chrome should offer similar performance. Microsoft Edge/Explore, Apple Safari and other web browsers have not been tested and are not supported, but should also be compatible with this website.
