Xara Web Designer 10 Premium Supersite with XT-CMS 1.9
« on: October 01, 2015, 06:46:56 PM »
Just wanted to post the new website I'm working on.

Its 96% done and will be "live" October 28th. Working on tweaking the "speed"...especially with the home page picture widget.

The test url is here:
http://new.clintonhealth.org 

it will be replacing the "current" website (made with FrontPage 2000)  http://www.clintonhealth.org
and will switch over to that url on the 28th.


Its designed with Xara Web Designer 10 Premium and  XT-CMS 1.9.  I based some of the cool ideas from Xara's site here: http://www.webdesigner-v10-demosite.com/#xl_xr_page_products

The site is a "super-site" which is made from 1 Xara file with several pages in it, and the CMS template is made of 1 Xara file with 2 pages in it. NOTE: both Xara files also include a variant for cellphones.

We have approximately 51 pages of content, and there was no way we were going to try to build all those individual pages. Thank goodness there was a CMS program that works with Xara!

So all the bells & whistles part -- like the home page and all the Services & Programs' own main pages is just using Xara, as soon as you click on actual topic (example: Go to BUSINESSES then click on Public Water Systems) you are now looking thru the XT-CMS program. Very cool!

We using Windows IIS 7.0 and hosting on own website.

We're very happy with both software applications (Xara and XT-CMS).

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!


(Special shout-out to Tom at XT-CMS for ALL his patience and tweaking, and to  Egg, Gary, and Acorn, at Xara for helping me out -- teaching a "newbie")  :)
