Google has re-set the expiry date for its google maps to November 19 2013.
On that date, Google will attempt to automagically turn remaining v2 maps into v3 maps, by way of a JavaScript wrapper we will deploy. We expect this wrapper to work for most simple maps, but to avoid any last minute surprises Google strongly encourage sites to complete their migration to v3 ahead of this date. Google have prepared an upgrade guide to help make the migration process as painless as possible



Calco have launched a visitor friendly series of advertising modules. High visibility panels or graphics slide on to the screen and settle in unobtrusive but visible locations. Ideal for COOKIE LAW messages, general advertising and alerts. The popups use special DHTML code to avoid being blocked by pop-up blocking software. Whats a catfish ad ... its one that sits quietly on the bottom of the page.

Wordpress Extend ... coming soon! (October 2011)

We will shortly be revealing our new Wordpress CMS Applications. This is a perfect upgrade for those users who are finding the limits of their WeCreate Pro package. A set of pre built applications will be available to peruse. As a friend in the US drawled recently:- "Wordpress? It's a no brainer, and real easy to install and use."


See our page about 1-click-installs if you dont know what they are.

The 1-click install library is updated as application developers write INSTALL SCRIPTS for their programmes. Most popular apps like Wordpress and Joomla come as 1-click-installs allowing a stress free install and pleasant environment in which to focus all your energies ion developing the website and not worrying about configuration.

Wordpress Extend

Calco has taken this paradigm one step further and will be offering ready built templates to slide directly into Wordpress, allowing the application not only to run as a traditional Wordpress Blog, but also as static and dynamic pages interacting with a data source. This is the ideal framework for lists of items such as a collection of cars, properties, books etc Call 01599 534964 now for pricing and details.


Call us and we answer. If you need advice on the best way forward in business, our experts are there to assist. If something goes wrong they are there to get things back on track. Our Server Systems are monitored 24 hrs per day!


Our 99 package comes with integrated back-up facility. Simply click BACK UP in the panel and thats what will happen. Users of Joomla and MySQL databases should use the second button too to back up their MySQL database(s)
