In early 2016 Kilgour Elementary School’s parent teacher association looked for a qualified parent to recreate their Joomla website. This involved learning a new open-source based platform that was relatively complex for weekly use of nearly 600 families. Adding regular media assets to the sliders, staying on top of events, all without the easy help of WordPress plugins was a challenge. I enjoyed the simple file stucture of the new platform, but not the content management system.
Most school PTAs have no need for adding SEO services, however I made it a point to add anchor texts, breadcrumbs, alt text, and links whenever possible. The resulting site was enough to keep parents happy for 3 years before an eventual overhaul by the next qualified parent.
