Hi Dan,

Thanks for your offer.  

As far as I recall, the TDWG executive decided at the last meeting to move onto a whole new platform and put contractor money aside to make it happen.
I’m reluctant to point you at the tangled mess of the current system when I suspect it is to be replaced anyway.  It really is a convoluted mess of Typo3 plugins, which try and keep a bunch of backend systems in sync and dues to bugs in there it does not work as expected.  I really don’t think it is something you want to get into, but I sympathise that the TDWG site is broken and no-one is maintaining it… a simpler vanilla CMS solution that even requires more manual text editing etc. will be a far more manageable solution in my opinion.

@TDWG Executive folks - is it still the intention to contract out and do a basic CMS site?  
If not, I’ll try and pull up the code but I’d need your approval to get him a DB dump as it holds user credentials / subscriptions etc. Please can you advise us?  Anything we can do to help?
