School Website Changes

It is easy to forget the joys of designing a website from scratch, right from reviewing what HTML code looks like to navigation issues. This weekend a beta version of the website began to take shape. The software tool used to do this was Dreamweaver. Being able to move back and forth between a code view and design view really helped to isolate problems with content areas that won't move where you want them to move.
One thing I recognized while moving back and forth between pages to make changes to the navigation bar is that this excercise shouldn't be necessary for web sites that will be changed by more than one person. Free content management systems like Joomla and Drupal provide all that is needed to create an easy interface for multiple users to make contributions.

Now after all of that Gobbldegook, here is a preview of the changed website:
