"I haven't used Joomla in probably 6 or 7 years, but if you are seriously looking at it, you're probably going to need to completely rethink the way you envision the architecture of your site. Within Joomla, there are no concepts of parent…"

Curtiss Grymala replied to Kraig Etzel's discussion Website re-design and hiring help
"One more thing I would point out is the importance to truly understand what you need at your institution. Are you looking for a Web developer or a Web designer? If you are trying to advertise a position that requires the applicant to be really good…"

Curtiss Grymala replied to Ryan Knutson's discussion Redesign launched this fall thoughts?
"I think the design looks great. I do have one word of caution, though. I'm not sure what your analytics information looks like, but the home page could potentially be extremely confusing for someone with either an 800x600 display or someone…"
