August Meeting of the Web Tech Development group

August 20, 2:00pm

Present: Margaret, Linnea Rademaker, Jennifer Robins,


1) Report of changes made

     Reports by each person


The structural and template update of both the English and Spanish sides is mostly finished. The goal is to have a spanish page for every english page with some exceptions. The Interest groups will work in either English or Spanish and will be housed on the side of the web that they are working in with links to it from the other side with a note that says that they are working in Spanish or English. If a group is working in both languages, it will be translated. Right now we are proposing this for the Collaborative Interest groups but not the operations groups as this information should be available in both languages. Margaret is going to work with the translating crew to help them with the process of translating google site pages. One thing to keep in mind is that each page can be checked to make sure it is the same but adding or taking away "sp" in the url.

LInnea - shows off the home 3 - for new members -- work still needs to be done on the tech help pages but Linnea is going to focus on getting the membership area working well.

Miguel - has some FAQ ideas that he will send to Linnea)

Jennifer-  is working on cascading style to clean up the website. She is taking it on herself to explore how this might work and then to create unification of fonts, font size and headings.
