Upgraded Website--info for the techie in you.

On April 17th, we made our upgraded website live. EM America has been working on this for quite a while. This is just part of our Search Engine Optimization plan.

The new system has lots of integrated components that should make searching the site easier for our visitors. Some add-ons we purchased with our old system that only worked for a short time are now standard in the new system....and they actually work.

Our next step is to get the webstore and the website fully integrated. They use different servers, which has been a programming issue. However, the new Joomla 1.5 allows our web guys to write new lines of code that can integrate the two. This will make the shopping experience better for our visitors as well. The blog is now showing correctly and will be a regular feature in the website. And, the look is more attractive as the site scrolls through pictures when the pages are refreshed.

Hats off to our web guys: Matt and Scott. They help us out with the technical side of things. We just write the content.

Let us know what you think.
