Testing Revised Interface for News (17th March 2004)
Due to forced absence #3 still being in effect, I have had time to design and develop ideas for making my site more usable. The result of these ideas has been a development on the current multi-page news system where there is a portal from which you can access all the articles, but the articles only have a link to return you back to the portal.
Whilst testing this I have found it easier to use than the drop-down list. By applying it to all areas of the site I will dramatically reduce the amount of information I need to duplicate when I add a new section or add a new set of articles to a section. In the distant future (perhaps 2005) I am considering moving to PHP but for now this new interface idea seems to work pretty well.
