Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
I need a little humor after my latest dealing with a webdesign company. The Sr. partner decided our company website needed a new look...something 'modern'. Hmmm | :|

Until then, all website maintenance/design was my responsibility...but I'm apparently no designer, so the partner knew of a guy who had just started a webdesign/marketing outfit. 6 months later, I'm learning how to use WordPress to edit every single hyperlink to relative. I had given him a sub-domain to build it (as he didn't have his own resources). I had expected to be handed a completed finished package for deployment, but apparently I don't know how these things work. Anyway, the plan from the beginning was to build it under a sub-domain, then simply switch the default website on the server when it was ready. This was why I wasted the effort emphasizing that all links should be relative. Yeah, it worked just fine for the demo and I'm sure the guy already got paid. I knew upfront that I would be the one maintaining it. Sigh | :sigh:

This doesn't even begin to deal with the horrible design...huge background images and huge fonts. The main landing page shows a menu, one headline and a short blurb until scrolled. I suppose you could say it's a very minimalistic approach emphasizing the use of bright colors/background images, large fonts, and some weird scrolling effects and banners. Hmmm | :| But wait there's more...in order to provide consistency, new content must be created using a proprietary WordPress theme builder. Dead | X|
