Update on my project site
I’ve been working like a madwoman on the website I was going to use for my content management class project – the only thing is, I realized I needed to do way more work on it before converting it to WordPress. It was a legacy site, that lots of wonderful volunteer webmasters worked very hard on with what skills they had at the time – and boy have I been there. I should say, I’ve been THEM. I have left a few legacy sites in my wake as I’ve moved up from volunteer to free-lance semi-volunteer, and from learning by dabbling to actually taking classes, reading books and blogs and going to conferences. I know so much more now that I did when I was that volunteer webmaster muddling through, yet I realize now how VERY little I still know. I’m still dabbling, though much more effectively, at least.
There is still much to be done, and as I’m doing it, I’m learning more about the site, the organization, and what the needs may be. It’s all good, but it wasn’t yet ripe for WordPress – or maybe I wasn’t. That, or another cms, Drupal? Joomla? Maybe even one I create, is definitely in the site’s future, but for now, I’m continuing to fiddle with it.
I just added an xml sitemap for Google and created a user sitemap. I really should work on the navigation – I’ve been working on the site’s architecture “under the hood” and now the menu needs to reflect that – it will be easy now that I have the navigation in a php include – only one page to edit!
The actual site is working pretty well now – the design is still pretty primitive, but I’ll work on prettying it up later
Here it is – comments, feedback, ideas appreciated:
