Website expectations are rising faster than the Mississippi River after the April thaw. What was passable a year ago can be embarrassingly outmoded by today's web standards. It's tough to keep up. We know. That's why the WSU Web Team created new templates that look and function better, and are easier for site managers to, well, manage.
If your site is still in the old template, or if it was created in Dreamweaver or some other application, you have three options:
1. Website Conversion:
In almost every instance, web conversion is the preferred route. Why?
You'll have full support of Web Com staff as we evaluate your current site and brainstorm with you to figure out site organization, navigation and content
We'll work directly with IT on your behalf, making sure your site is built to your specification
After you're site is built in the new template, we'll teach how to manage it
Because the Web Team built the templates, if something goes wrong, we'll know how to fix it. You won't be stranded with an unfixable page.
Convert your site to web2010.
2. Redesign Consultation:
If you've found an outside application that works for you and you want to stick with what you know, we won't try to change your mind. You should know that because IT only supports WSU templates, you won't have much help on the technical side, but the Web Com department will support you with the following:
We'll evaluate your current site and brainstorm with you to figure out site organization, navigation and content
We'll invite you to our content workshop, where you can learn to create effective web content
We'll supply you with the WSU header and footer to make navigation easy for your users, without sacrificing your site's individuality
Request a redesign consultation.
3. Keep your clunker of a site:
Uh, we don't recommend this option because in today's world, it really isn't an option. If you find yourself resisting change, ask yourself why you are opposed to improving your site. Often, we hear, "I don't have time." We believe you. But we also believe that we'll be able to help. That's why we're here.
