Website Review: St George’s Cathedral

One of the best way to find ways to improve your own website is to look at the competition to see what they do, and what you can learn from them. Today, I’m looking at the website for St George’s Cathedral, Perth.

Home Page

The home page has a rotating flash banner with well-chosen images, with a message over the top of each image. Below that is a three column layout where there is an image based navigation on the left, a short welcome note, including a link to sign up for the e-mail newsletter, and Latest news in the centre column, then a virtual tour and upcoming events in the right column.

New design

Regulars will notice that I have another new blog design for my site. This is due to my previous hosting arrangements coming to an end and me being required to find new hosting. In the end I decided to go with wordpress.com, as I’ve always used wordpress blogs, and it is far cheaper and more reliable than anything else on the market.

I haven’t decided to go with the custom css package atm, so am stuck with the themes available – but they seem really good, and a lot less work for me. So it’s all good 🙂

Design might change over the next little while as I figure out what’s best for this site, and what direction I’m going to take it in. But for the mean time, enjoy.

Oops…a new site

Wow, I’ve finally updated this site. A brand new design, and a new format. Figured it was time for a change. I used to host this site off my own server, but it got to be too much of a hassel, so I decided to move it onto a different server – this means that it will be available more often. Just don’t suddenly make it incredibly popular, as I’ve got limited bandwidth.

Unfortunately, in the process of moving, I’ve lost all of my posts that had been made. I’ve still got them on my home server, but it doesn’t look like I’ll be getting them moved across easily. I’ll go through them and find any posts that are worth saving and put them back up, but more than likely a lot will get lost (probably for the better).
