Sorry for all the dust and cobwebs
This site hasn’t been updated in awhile, and I’m a little embarrassed to invite you in. Something is amiss with the fonts (I’m not sure you can even read this), the template files haven’t been touched since 2008, and the design has clearly fallen apart. Though the engine (ProcessWire 1.0) is still purring along beautifully. If you browse around this place, think of it like jumping into the web from 5+ years ago, like you are browsing archive.org. Currently all my energy is going towards ProcessWire and my clients. I stopped taking on new client work a few years ago (to give more attention to the ones I already had, and to ProcessWire), so this site has largely been forgotten. But don’t worry, it will get a full re-do before long. But having seen new links [to this site] show up recently, I felt there needed to be some kind of disclaimer to explain the mess. Rather than browsing around here, head on over to: processwire.com.

When a site goes from design comps to development site, a lot of change has taken place. Once the design is being populated with real content, and the navigation is functional, you should stress-test the design in two key areas: translative and invasive stress testing.

What follows is just one approach to design that has worked well for the author. It should be considered a primer of the process so long as it helps with your design needs. It should not be considered a set of rules, as each designer may have a different approach.
Content in subscription web sites is naturally limited for search engines. This type of content can’t be indexed by Google because you have to log in to view it. How do you retain the benefits of being indexed by Google and still maintain subscriber-only content?
