New website in beta testing

Two news stories in one day! How about that!

I'm planning on converting the Eamon site to run using the Joomla Content Management System. The big advantage to using a CMS is that I can allow others to do work for the Eamon site without waiting for me to code things manually as I must currently do.

For instance, say you wanted to write a new review. I could simply set you up as an editor. You could write your review and post it to the site. Trusted users would be able to post instantaneously. Others would post after I reviewed it to make sure it wasn't trash or spam.

In the end, we get a dynamic site which encourages user participation without being so delayed or burdensome. A win for everyone!

The beta version of the new site is online at About 80% or so of the material from the old site is online. Give it a spin, kick the tires, and let me know what you honestly think. I want this to be a tool that people will use so your input is greatly appreciated.

Feel free to leave feedback comments below or email them to me at
