I have used Rapidweaver build a few sites, but I’m certainly not adept. I’d like some advice, please.
Our non-profit organisation has a voluntary webmaster. I think he uses Wordpress. The following, italicised text is from an email to him as confirmation of a recent meeting.
We understand that there will be a need in the coming future to build another website. This is due to upgrades and advanced server and site-builder software being installed by service provider Panther.
Lack of information and tutorials at the moment make it difficult to advise how this new build can be managed, so it is not possible to establish if any changes to our current website could be introduced during the build, if necessary.
Time required to build and publish the new website is unknown at this time- this may just be hours, but could be days or even weeks. It would not be possible to operate the current website whilst building the new one. Conversion software may be available to assist, but there is no good info available at the moment.
I would have thought that new pages would be created offline, and simply uploaded to override the existing. This webmaster has a few other ideas that clash with my thinking including: refusing to include links to any any social media; not being able to properly spell-check, and being paranoid about privacy… very, very paranoid.
I don’t want to stick my neck out by saying it’s a crock, unless I know I’m on firm ground. Your comments would be appreciated.
Thanks in anticipation.
