I am looking to refresh my company’s Web site, ParadiVision, which has not been updated in quite a while. It does not showcase what I really have been working in for the last two years.
Yesterday, I discovered Grafitti CMS and it looks like just what I need:
- SEO optimized
- Dead simple
- Easy to customize the design
- Easy to add plug-ins for
- .Net engine
Since most of the content is outdated and I want the new Web site to be dead simple, I will probably start from scratch with new content. Since we have our own servers on W2K 2003 and IIS and that I’m fluent with C# and .Net, the new engine will be easy to expand or write widget for if the need arise.
For the transition, I will also be using ISAPI_Rewrite, which is an Apache mod_rewrite compatible ISAPI module for IIS. I will use it to do redirects for outdated URLs. Also, I will take the time to make sure all variant of the fully qualified domain name will be properly redirected.
