Site launch: SolutionsforNY.org

The Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities, a long-standing WSG client, this week launched a new site – SolutionsforNY.org. The site is the digital home of cIcu’s Campus Community Partners outreach effort.

Campus Community Partners is an initiative that highlights the brainpower, partnerships and resources that New York’s 100+ independent colleges and universities bring to residents and communities throughout New York State.

The site was built on the Drupal content management system, and includes a custom design. We congratulate cIcu on the new site and we look forward to seeing it grow.

Site Launch: Stepping Stones II Early Learning Center

WSG is pleased to launch SteppingStonesII.com, a brand new site.  Stepping Stones is a child day care center located in Troy, NY.  As their site states:

Stepping Stones II Early Learning Center offers childcare services for children ages six weeks to five years — providing a warm, relaxed, “extended family” atmosphere — a home away from home. Reasonably priced with breakfast, lunch and snacks included and conveniently located off I-90 in North Greenbush.

The site is based on a custom design – including a custom logo – and is running on WSG’s own Content Management Tool.  The staff at Stepping Stones wanted to use the site to communicate with parents and find new families through the web.  Center Director Christy LaBarge has already been doing a good job of watching for and answering user-generated content related to the center online, most notably this thread on the TimesUnion.com entitled “Daycare help!” Good job Christy!

Make it stop! No more alternative browsers!

Please make it stop, the growth in browsers, that is.  Web Worker Daily felt the need to push some of the fringe browsers in a post today.  Most design and development people will check for usability on Firefox (2.0 or 3.0), IE6 and 7, and maybe Safari, depending on the target audience.  Like we said in a recent post, make it easy on yourself and just use Firefox 3.0.  Check that recent post for why.
