A separate Website was created to present selected snippets and items of historic significance with respect to the Brisbane Hockey Association (BHA). BHA has a very rich past. It was hoped that this could be demonstrated and highlighted through this Website. It is taking some time to fill this site with meaningful content. In effect, the site is always under construction/expansion. Please take a look at it though. You may be pleasantly surprised at what's gone on before!

Unfortunately we have had to close down our past sites. For history's sake, we were trying to preserve most of them since 2000. Years 2000 through to 2012 have been removed. The following list gives details of how the sites were created and managed over the years.

  • 2000 - Hand coded using 'Claris Homepage v3' and then residing under 'hockey.bytesite.com.au'.
  • 2001 - Hand coded and residing under 'hockey.bytesite.com.au'.
  • 2002 - Still hand coded and residing under 'hockey.bytesite.com.au' as "The Hockey Web". This site featured some of the Flash animations I created at the time. It was the following year that BHA obtained its own domain name of bha.org.au.
  • 2003 - Hand coded using 'Namo WebEditor'. The Junior links no longer work and all of the Fixtures have been removed. Animated buttons were a feature of this site.
  • 2004 - Still using 'Namo WebEditor'.
  • 2005 - A rather ugly but nevertheless functional hand coded site. Sometimes criticised for being rather slow to render though.
  • 2006 - A much cleaner and snappier site. Introduced a News module (CuteNews) and used text links i.l.o. buttons (images). Still hand coded using Namo WebEditor.
  • 2007 - Originally published online using the 'Website Baker' CMS, this season's content has subsequently been ported to the 'CMSimple' CMS, with a completely different theme, though the content remains relatively true. 2007 saw the beginning of the use of 'EditGrid' to display Fixtures and Points Tables. The inclusion of Lee Oliver's Match Reports (BHL1) was a notable highlight of 2007.
  • 2008 - This season was also published using Website Baker CMS and featured the exclusive use of 'EditGrid' the online spreadsheet for the listing of Fixtures and Points Tables.
  • 2009 - Published using Website Baker CMS, new template and linking to SportingPulse for the listing of Fixtures and Points Tables. Used a selection of photo strips in header for the first time that display in random order.
  • 2010 - Published using Website Baker CMS with minimal modifications to the 2009 site.
  • 2011 - Published using Website Baker CMS.
  • 2012 - Published using Website Baker CMS.

Several of the older sites have been recently compromised and our domain (bha.org.au) used to generate email spam.

Limitations

It is important to note that when preserving the past, much of the material has only been kept as 'hard copy' and this has necessitated the added task of scanning the documents. In addition, often these documents are very fragile and need to be handled with care. One of the peculiarities of this work is the fact that up until the early Eighties, much of the material was produced on 'foolscap' paper. This has meant that a conversion step (photocopy reduction) has had to be carried out prior to scanning, thus making the process lengthier and even more time consuming.

In the case of past Websites, some of the material and resources that were originally linked to when the site was live are no longer available. This however is mostly considered a minor irritation while browsing through these valuable archives.

Don't forget to let us know what you think of our efforts to bring back some of BHA's past history!
