What I've Been Working On

What I have been working on recently is a re-construction of the FOCUS website, which I have explained here. I have been doing a bit of work on a new simpler FOCUS website using an existing content management software. Here is what I would like to achieve:

  • Simple and clean interface.
  • CSS driven, and avoid tabular layouts.
  • XHTML 1.0 Transitional.
  • Easy to maintain, easy to upgrade, easy to distribute work.

The new official website would be our public face, and the existing 'community-oriented' site would be retired into a few separated sites to continue provide services for existing FOCUS members and ex-FOCUS overseas. There will be no forum, no photo gallery, no sermon outlines - just plain information on who we are, what we do, and where we can be found. Here is a preview:

It is powered by TextPattern (which I reviewed here). I found quite suitable for this task - flexible in content creation, yet light enough to be fast on this poor old server.
