So we have this OUR STORY page that tells a bit about our history and our achievements. However, it's one block of text and could not look less appealing. It wasn't a priority in our redesign but it's time to whip this into shape. Guus already made some sort of a timeline template page that we can use, and we can start pulling in bits and pieces from our NEWS or EVENTS sections to better fill it with nice content. Let's see.

Okay this was taken to a new level! Pfff it was quite a task to get all these pieces in place, but I think it much better now. It went from a text-only page to the attached page, which contains much more imagery, and in general just much better displays the many things we've been up to, I think. I've been relying heavily on the NEWS section and past newsletters, as well as my own materials I had at hand, to curate this section. So there is definitely a bias in there and just highlighting four items for a given year is restricting. However, all the news of that year will be featured below (if it's marked to be included in the timeline, which is something we've done together in a previous sprint). I've also set it up so that Aris' very cool annual reviews pop up first, if they are available (2017/2019). And the previous text is still in place for the annual summaries that open when clicking on viewing the details. In any case if we should highlight anything else by all means give a shout or modify this on the site. I will include instructions in the admin manual.

I'll ask Guus to sort out the varying dimensions of the images, I think that can be improved with some of his attention.
