One of the things I'm doing for my new employer is supervising a very large web site redesign project. The corporation's entire web presence is going to be nuked to scorched earth and rebuilt from scratch. In order to make the redesign worthwhile, we're going to use a content management system (CMS) so that the site will be maintainable.
I've written a lot of web sites, but almost all my work has been in HTML, HTML with CSS, Flash, and purpose-built CMS engines like Wordpress and Gallery. I used Joomla! for a very short while back when it was called Mambo, but I am by no means an expert.
I don't have to be, of course -- we're going to contract with a brilliant developer -- but it'll help if we all speak the same language. So, the rebuild of my home page has been a learning experience. Don't be surprised if you see several of my other sites also getting Joomla! makeovers.
If you notice things are broken, let me know. Otherwise, bear with me as I experiment.
