The Art of Proactive Parenting

Published on

We all spend a lot of time talking about how our lives are made easier by ExpressionEngine’s features and flexibility during the development of the websites we build.

It’s easy to forget that this phase of a website’s life doesn’t even get it to infancy. It is in fact just a tiny fraction of it’s life thus far. What isn’t talked about enough is how we can make the lives of the site owners or administrators easier, giving them the knowledge, confidence, and tools to successfully manage their content and nurture their new website as it grows and develops.

We’re all very reactive when we see clients managing their content in unpredicable ways. We’ve all had a good laugh/cry around the office at the latest ridiculously sized image/clipart that’s been added to the website. We’ve all had that same “Why doesn’t it look the same as in MS Word” conversation. I’m sure we’ve all felt the same frustration at the thing we’ve laboured over for all those nights becoming less and less recognisable as the weeks after launch go by.

It’s time to get proactive.

These are my slides from the workshop. They won't make much sense outside of the context of the workshop. I hope to follow up with some blog posts that will explain my ideas for those who weren't there.
