A better tablet interface. Maybe I'm not doing something I should be doing but when I first come to CP on my tablet everything is desktop size and I have to scroll all the way to the bottom to change to ?full site? I think is the button label.
Have you ever just looked at someone and knew the wheel was turning but the hamster was dead?
Trying to understand the behavior of some people is like trying to smell the color 9.
I think that the site needs to be more interactive and responsive to the needs of the primary stakeholders while delivering a forward-looking design. Is it in The Cloud yet? And why does it not look right on my 10-year-old phone? Can you make it work like Facebook? Have you upgraded to HTML 5 yet? Don't you need that for The Cloud? My friend's nephew said he could do this in a day with WordPress, he's only 13, why are you saying it will take months? This is all digital, right? Is it in high-def?

I am the one tasked with upgrading my bushwalking club's website. I don't have much experience with websites but I'm a "computer guy" so it was a lay down misere. After a bit of research decided to use Joomla cms which beguiled me with "get a website running in one hour" promises. It's a week later and I'm getting there and learning a great deal about how the other half lives. I've made tons of mistakes and still don't understand lots. Documentation and structure leave a lot to be desired. Third party add-ons while laudable in their intentions often add to the problems. Maybe I've been too ambitious.
My conclusion is that I should have started with a minimal installation and got that working then prettied it up.
Tomorrow night I will demo to the committee. That is something to look forward to.

And the apps that promise this stuff do indeed do that.
It's a rap site (with a capital 'C'), but it's up and running. It'll then take you all year to get it working right, but that's not their problem: you've invested time in getting that far, so you'll probably continue.
It's like all the "Learn ABC in XYZ days!!!" books out there: useless piles of steaming canine excrement for anything outside the narrow scope of the document. But they sell to the lazy and stupid...who then think they are master coders when they close the book.
