illuminea has a new site design!
Yes, we’ve revamped our website, and it’s about time! If you’re reading this in a feed reader, come on over and check it out.
Our old site was divided into two parts: one part was a static site built on old-fashioned HTML, and the second part was the blog, sitting separately on WordPress.
There were a few problems with that setup:
- Updating the static site was not fun, especially if we needed to update elements that were repeated across the site, like the navigation bar, or the footer.
- The blog should have been tied into the site for better search engine results.
- The blog was sitting on a really old version of WordPress.
It was the old story of the shoemaker going barefoot – how can I recommend to clients to integrate their blogs with their websites for better web exposure, and not do so myself?
WordCamp Israel was the final push – if I’m going to be on the business panel at a WordPress conference, my business had better be oozing WordPress.
Having a new site has actually inspired me to pick up the pace on my blogging. It’s kind of like getting a new toy (i.e. laptop, PDA) which encourages you to become more productive.
I hope you like the site, and feedback is welcome. I know there are some quirks that need to be worked out, plus a lot of content is still missing, but we’ll get there!
