As Director of the Virtual Museum of Bath l am somewhat cyber-phobic when it comes to getting maximum on-screen benefit from my Wordpress-driven website. A quick and relaxing visit to Lawrence Tilley ensured that - with a few digit-driven trips across his computer keyboard - he transformed my website page and made it both more inviting and readable. I am sure he will increase the number of 'hits' l get on the 'front-page' and archives l have mustered in two years of existence. The Virtual Museum has had 132,000 such 'hits' from around the world. I am hoping Lawrence's technical tweaks will encourage even more.
