Welcome to Devon Dowsers’ website. It’s a little different from before, so we hope that a (very) few words of introduction might be helpful.
The site is built with WordPress, a free software program that started out as an easy means to set up personal Blogs – shorthand for weBLogs – which are something like online diaries. Since then, WordPress has grown into a very sophisticated website building device with increasing capabilities.
WordPress works by dividing its content between fixed pages (like this one) and a different format called posts. Most of this website now consists of pages. Two of our pages, listed under Dowsing – Dowsing specialisms are Earth Energies and Archaeology. Each Dowsing specialisms page lists articles in alphabetical order by title to make finding your way around much easier. Click on the title you are interested in, and you will find a pdf to read. You will only find posts under News and Our most recent posts. Posts can have a very wide range of subject matter, and are one way of giving you our latest news. If you choose to subscribe to this website – and we hope you will – you will receive an email to tell you each time a new post has been published on the website, keeping you up to date.
A couple of other aspects of both pages and posts are also interesting. As well as text they can include pictures, links to other articles or websites, sound clips and even short video films. We welcome any contributions to this website, so if you have any photos or writing you would like to add, please contact us.
Besides this website, we hope you will visit our Facebook and Instagram pages. These contain interesting photos, news of new additions to website, reports on Devon Dowsers events such as our talks and field trips, and information about other events that might interest you. Members of Devon Dowsers are invited to join the Members’ Only Forum on our Facebook page. The aim of this closed group is to provide a safe place for members of Devon Dowsers and invited specialist dowsers to share, safely and without judgement from others, anything they want to share related to dowsing.
The easiest way to get to know this website is simply to explore it for yourselves. You will see that you can alter the text size by clicking one of the blue zoom widget buttons at the top right of each page. We have tried to make exploring the site as easy as we can, so we hope you will enjoy much/most/even all of what you find.
