Welcome to WebThang Version 2.
Welcome back to your new look WebThang! Yes, we've been busy over the past few months. We have created a entire new look and feel for the site which has been long overdue.
You'll find some new sections in Version 2 and some older features have been dropped altogether. Let not that dampen your mood fair coder, as we'll be looking at introducing new features onto the site in the next coming months - along with the usual monthly tutorials.
So have a look around and drop us a line in the forums to let us know what you think.

News: Future of WebThang
Since taking over WebThang I have not had a lot of time at all to dedicate to it and as a result, the site has suffered and for that I sincerely apologise. So, for the future of the site, I am going to be looking to move it away from its current format and move it forward a bit to bring it a bit more up to date with current trends. For the existing content, I'll endeavour to port across any tutorials that are still relevant and maybe even update a few, but for the time being, all the existing ones will remain and I'll hopefully relaunch the site in the next couple of months. On the upside, I've just renewed the hosting again so I'm keen to keep it rolling, just need to set aside some time and get this site on the move again. Cheers.
