You’ve probably come to this post because you are wondering where did my free resources go? The good news is that I haven’t stopped sharing them, the bad news is that I’ve had to change the way I go about doing this.
Unfortunately technology moves very quickly and the wordpress plugin that I was using hasn’t been updated for several years and poses a security risk to my site (and in turn to visitors of my site). This means I have had to look for a new way to make these files available.
The files are now hosted on Microsoft OneDrive in which I have plenty of storage. More importantly it allows me to easily embed folder links into a WordPress page, and to update these folders without having to tinker with the site. This isn’t as easy for Google Drive or Dropbox (who require a paid upgrade for the functionality I require).
Unfortunately I can’t just share my working folders as these contain copyrighted materials (from bought in resources) and modified versions of other teachers work (for example downloaded from the TES) that I am unable to give credit for. I’ve taken the opportunity to group resources together and simplify the categories under which they are grouped. I realise that the new system is not as convenient as the old but there a limited number of free plugins available on WordPress which provide the functionality I need.
If you have any questions about the change, or you think you know a better way of sharing my resources then please let me know by leaving a comment below.
