OXSIL’s new look

I’ve just finished moving the OXSIL pages to a WordPress theme.

The database search functionality seems to be working, as do all of the templates.

Please let me know if you encounter a problem.  Just leave a message on this or any page.   I’ll publish comments, but not requests for help or questions (unless you specifically ask).

Best regards
