Site redesign?

Please post anything that is not directly about specific Heartfield-related guitars or basses here. Posts about the Forum or the Site also fit here wonderfully.

New site with full proper mobile support and proper CMS - should it happen?

Oh yes! - I never really liked the current site that much to begin with

Yes - the current site is a bit old-fashioned looking so it could be overhauled

Maybe - if you find the time, go ahead, I don't mind, knock yourself out! If not, I won't mind either...

No - I am used to the current site and it works fine as far as I'm concerned

Oh no! - the current site is perfect for what I need, keep your techno-savvy hands off it!

Site redesign?

Post by Richard » Thu May 24, 2018 6:14 pm

In the past two years I have converted two of my other sites to use a proper content management system (CMS) called Typo3 (the sites are http://www.plantiac.com and http://www.st-news.com in case you're curious).
This uses modern web technologies that are more future-proof and also feature so-called adaptive responsiveness, meaning it will work on big but also on much smaller screens (such as phones and tablets).
It will have no influence on the Heartfield Forum.
It takes a lot of time to do it, though, so I would like to ask you all: Should I create a new site or not?
