You’d be forgiven for thinking the builders had been out to visit the Hall recently – but it’s a website renovation we’re talking about here.
As the present Hagley Hall website nears its fourth birthday, we did an objective appraisal and found several aspects of the website were due an upgrade.
Websites updated as frequently as Hagley Hall’s are also subject to a different sort of problem; ‘feature creep.’ This perhaps rather sinister-sounding term is really a name for when unforeseen features are continually added to a website. Sometimes there is no planning for a new feature, be it a fresh page layout or a massive new feature like Hagley Hall’s event table planner.
Both of these ‘bedbugs’ of the Internet eventually make it advisable to take a close look at how a website is built and make upgrades both technical and structural. Reorganising content added slowly over the course of four years can have a great impact on how useable the website is.
