If you've taken one of my classes or workshops, jump over to the Student Resources Section to find the tutorials, software links and tips mentioned. I've been so busy teaching, troubleshooting web isues that this site has been ignored.
Yes, i've almost finished my exhaustive Content Management System Tutorial "set" (at 65 pages now!). Starting with required server software, linking up the database for an install, through strategy, CMS file types and how they work together, and then tips for choosing plugins that will play nice together. I just wrote a security module... wordpress now has some malware and i've got recommendations for a good setup. I will be working on a mentor/tutorial/support system i can handle. But i'm concentrating on documenting the CMS elements NOT easily found, some nowhere to be found so the written part will be available for download soon. Free overview and excerpts, detailed tutorials by "section" priced at starving artist/student rates.
BIG NEWS!! Will be teaching a CMS intro/best practices at a University in Northern VA beginning of 2014, (first time i've seen it taught at any school!!) Proposal and lesson plan are top priority.
Static websites, deconstructed:
Our Step by Step Guide walks you through the website design and development process as most did up to about 3 years ago. As a general overview it is still quite valid. But the landsape has changed. We talk strategy, analysis, niche markets, and more.
