[A] Website

Only Users logged in with Administrator privileges can see this page.

This website is under development and being evaluated for future website ideas. All questions should be directed to the webmaster at JMarkWeaver@gmail.com.

As pages are moved to this website fundamental changes are made to the content:

  1. All media (such as .jpeg, .gif, .pdf) files are moved to the media library
    1. The media files are renamed to be short to represent their ownership such as:
      1. ca_ for generic clipart files especially if the ownership of the art is not known
      2. cc_ for files owned by Canyon Creek
      3. tp_ for content owned by City of Austin PARD, Trailhead Park
      4. etc.
  2. Link references:
    1. All link references to media content are referenced by the the slug value only (such as /ccpool ). The server value, directory values, and library suffix are removed.
    2. To improve readability and unless there is a specific reason to do so, links have been changed to simple hyperlinked text words instead of spelled out hyperlinks. As an example: “Shop at Amazon“, instead of “Shop at http://www.amazon.com“.
  3. Content vs Format:
    1. To facilitate ease of use by designers and page & blog contributors the structure of content is built in a consistent way while allowing a full complement of design blocks to author content.
    2. To facilitate ease of use by the users of the website, the content is delivered in a consistent framework.
  4. Page Revision Control:
  5. more to come…
