Large Sites and Information Architecture

"I apologize in advance, because this is going to be more of an article of philosophy, than a technical how-to. A while back I wrote a piece on the subject of breadcrumbs. In it, I made a comment about how breadcrumbs are a tool that helps expose the information architecture (IA) of a site to a visitor.

WordPress for Site Management

We are moving off our Windows servers over to a LAMP environment. You know how when you move you not only move your stuff, you start re-thinking Things In General?
