I have been proud for some time to say that I do well in google for the search term, pub history. I should point out that I believe that I am deserved of this rating, even if my pages are boring – 3.7.
Looking at responses through the advertising says something different, and although I just about cover costs from desktop users (oldies, like me); the vast number of mobile users find little of interest in the site /s. I believe.
I have just bought a decent guide on mobile web design by O’Reilly, which I am sure will point me in the right direction of redesigning a site – their books are usually pretty good.
I have been thinking about the design for some time, and I would really like to create some form of framework to build a site each time rather than the ad-doc approach I currently use, and shit Microsoft sharepoint designer software. I have an ubuntu linux desktop waiting to be used, too.
I do not really want the data in a database, although we are talking about thousands of individual records,. I don’t particularly want to use php as a scripting language.
Thinking back to earlier design builds, they used a flat file system of configuration files. Maybe this is an answer?
I think the important point is keeping files small, for web development, and also to allow me to work with massive data, i.e. fifty thousand pages of data, and thousands of images, as the site currently stands.
Maybe I will try this out on a smaller site, of a subset of pages. But then this defeats the object.
More tomorrow, or the next day. I plan to put something different in place later this year, and will succeed.
