Rebirth of a dead site walking?
Some week ago I took part in a meeting of old youthful rugby players nearby the Villadose Club House, at the same time there was a beautiful promotion initiative dedicated to kids. So watching their enthusiasm and teamwork of their parents, I decided to fix the old site of the Rugby Villadose that I have realized eight years ago. Although it is seasoned, can be again an useful tool of promotion and information.
In the past I edited and updated for free, the ASD Rugby Villadose 1976 web site, firstly as a player in the 2003/2004 Season and then as a simple freelance in the odd moments. Until the 2008/2009 Season I was able to keep it updated with the help of good assistants, after this Season without any helper, I used two clever tricks to automate its updating: catching the articles published by RovigoOggi.it, as you can see here (maybe I will show you in details how I did).
Evolution/Involution of the site
I had no intention of changing this situation, but the annual meeting of "Fioi de Gianni e Nane" rossoblu vs "Quandocheggiocavoio" petrarchini was in Villadose rugby facilities! In that occasion I have seen my old field and the enthusiasm of many kids, parents and managers that were preparing the conclusion of Sport evoluzione naturale del gioco. I liked this movement and teamwork, so distant from the professionalism showed off by seniores team. Today there are yet people that spend their free times for sons, relations and friends.
I met the new coordinator, Pierangelo Mazzetto, and though the first impression was no good (but that night I drunk many beers), I decide to fix the old site of the Rugby Villadose and give to him a valid tool to promote in the web the activities of the Company.
Features of the site
- add news and Feed RSS (from seniores team category to rugby in the primary school category);
- add menus and short news in some part of the page (meetings and results);
- different User Levels with the auto-registration module and restricted access;
- WYSIWYG editor, with the ability to insert photo using roadtrip function of Lightbox v2.04;
- visitors can post comments.

I think that this small and obsolete web site can still be a valid tool for promoting and inform and I hope that enthusiasm and passion seen in the Villadose facilities, could make it more full of news and informations.
