About the BIS website

The development of a new BIS website was instigated in 2009 by then BIS President, John Harlow, and was subsequently supported equally strongly by current BIS President, Dr Bob Parkinson. Development of the systems architecture and coding of the new BIS website and online services was delegated to BIS Council member Richard Osborne.

The BIS website was written using the WordPress Content Management System, and uses a customised version of the Arras WordPress theme. WordPress was chosen following a thorough evaluation of the various content management systems, because with the BIS’s financial situation at that time, the open source nature of WordPress was attractive, along with its ease of use for adding and updating content.
