SAFIRE’s website was originally created using Wordpress, something that was inherited when custodianship of the federation passed to TENET. For various reasons we have decided to abandon Wordpress in favour of a modern static site generator, and have chosen to adopt Hugo.
One substantial benefit of this approach is increased transparency, particularly around changes to policies. The Hugo source is stored in a public GitHub repository, thus allowing Participants to peruse the commit history of any document.
During transfer from Wordpress, every effort was made to preserve existing URLs and the current theme. It is expected that this change should be largely transparent. However, please let us know if anything is missing. The old Wordpress site has been temporarily retained at https://old.safire.ac.za/, where it’ll remain accessible for a couple of weeks.
