Regular readers can’t have failed to notice that AROnline‘s design is slowly changing. We’ve been fiddling with the WordPress element of the site to improve functionality with the intention so that we can slowly move the content onto this CMS-alike system. There are many reasons for this, but the most necessary one is for multi-user administration…
That’s why, over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be concentrating on transferring the most important parts of the site – namely the car development histories and prototype galleries – across onto WordPress before introducing a new, integrated menu system which should enable us to do away with our Java frame-based system, which has served us so well since 2002.
You’ll probably notice random changes and formatting glitches while we’re in this period of change, but we’ll try and keep downtime to an absolute minimum.
However, whilst we’re doing this, if you do have any comments or suggestions, please drop them in here or email us directly. We’ll be looking for a couple of things from you guys, though – a nice design for a site header and a stable and stylish left-hand menu system to replace the one to your left. The new designs should, if possible, look and feel like the ones we have already, but must integrate seamlessly into WordPress… There will be a prize for the best one – not sure what it is, but there must be something in the AROnline goody-bag worth having.
