Panacea design, implement and support integrated IT business solutions for small and medium enterprises.
A key decision had been made to re-brand the business which or course involved many areas of which one was the website. We worked closely with Panacea’s chosen design agency En-Route who created the look and feel. Our job was then to turn the flat design into a fully functional website with content management system.
As a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Panacea wanted to make use of their own internal skills to host and maintain the server running the website. This meant the platform would be Windows based and therefore, would lend itself to using the scripting language of either ASP or ASP.NET.
After a review of the available content management systems and solutions available it was decided that a good candidate would be DotNetNuke. This is a free ASP.NET based solution on which to build database driven, search engine friendly websites and has a huge online development community. The only downside with this was that DotNetNuke, until recently, was not very Web Standards friendly and most developments are created using outdated page structures based around tables with very little if any CSS (see our page on Professional Web Design and Development for more information on web development using web standards). It was decided that we would investigate the ability to develop a truly web standards compliant website using DotNetNuke as we strongly believe that all websites should be developed in this manner.
Thankfully, DotNetNuke Version 4.5+ can be redeveloped using CSS and “Skins” that are web standards compliant and therefore easier to maintain in the future.
