Early Days of a new Site design

So far the new site seems to be working OK. I used a bad link checker to eliminate those and eventually submitted a sitemap.xml which Google were prepared to accept. There are still lots more pages to remove from Google even though I have dealt the main directories that have been deleted  I'm not sure how effective that will be.  I also have a bit more work to do to customise the 404 missing page message system. The site is much smaller now - only 53 pages - so it will be interesting to see what effect that has. The Beethoven Symphony movements still seem to be the most popular downloads.

Major Site Re-design Published

With the wide spread of broadband internet connections - the big decision this time was to abandon the LoFi clips. That meant that the individual pages for each piece could go too, The removal of Google Ads and the simple links to the MP3 files meant it was time for a total visual overhaul but we have kept most of the main page structure. Our previous authoring programme is past it's sell by date too so we have gone for the latest Zara Web Design package.  It took a little while to get used to it but they provided excellent support when I got stuck. The pages are all published now but take a while to propagate and there is still some snagging to do. The video clips need to be updated and they will be restored once that has been tackled. Even more important there are lots more recordings on the stocks and this update will clear the way for them to be added easily and quickly. Hope you like the new set up - any feedback welcome.
