CameraGossip website migration

I have migrated the Camera Gossip website from a Wordpress hosting provider to Google Sites. I was happy with Wordpress per se, but not so happy with the hosting provider. Google Sites is not as configurable, but it is fairly easy to set up and has improved significantly from the older Google Pages implementation. It also supports SSL for registered users, which is good for security.

One problem with Google Sites is that it doesn't allow the naked web url to be redirected, therefore the url takes a visitor to the domain name provider's web page. I am trying to find a solution to this problem. If the site is accessed via, you will land up in the right place. If anyone knows how to fix this problem, please let me know.

There may have been, and probably will be some more, outages of the site as I complete the migration and iron out any issues. Apologies for that.
