"I've got a great team working on setting up and EE site and I'm so glad for their expertise. It's a great product but does need a lot more work than WP. I really like WordPress too - great for blogs and mini-sites. "

"Yes, our existing site is static. All 3,000ish pages or so. Hence why I'm eager to get our dev space running since we're trying to launch in 5 months. Thanks for all the links - I'll check them out as I find time this week."

"As for setting up the database like you would in WordPress, yes, that is the same. As for setting up the CMS to tailor it to your needs, that is much different than WordPress. If you have never used EE before, I'd recommend watching these…"

"Hi Daniel, Yes, EE is much more complicated to set up than WordPress. If it's not done correctly, it can be a bit of a disaster. "

Moving large academic site to EE in December

We are moving to EE for our redesign (launch goal is December). Our IT department is kind of dragging its feet getting EE configured in a development space. Is it that difficult to setup? I come from WordPress experience, where you just name the database and go.See More

Sarah McMaster replied to Daniel Fowler's discussion Google Analytics - What are your drop off rates?
"April for us showed a 77.3%, but like other folks, we are shunting both students and staff/faculty to a portal from there. Seems like you're doing better than you thought!"

Google Analytics - What are your drop off rates?

The trouble with advising my university that "our drop off rates seem really high" is that I don't have any comparative data to support my claim. Hence my use of the word "seems".So I'd like to know what drop off rates some of you are seeing from your homepage (and more, if you're feeling generous). The way you find this info in the newest Google Analytics is toLog into your Analytics profileUnder Audience in the left menu, click Visitor FlowHover over your homepage under the Starting Pages…See More
