Hartismere Website :: A History :: 2007

2007 sees a significant change to the school website.

Now all the content is stored in a database and each page is generated automatically. This "content managed system" was quite new at the time - and the site had to be hosted in the USA because the original website host didn't support the technology required.

The school website is built with DotNetNuke - a Microsoft Asp.Net web based application with some slight modifications.

The site was about 500MB in size - a thousand times bigger than 10 years previously. Each week approximately 7,000 people from around the world visited the school site.

It cost £1.99 to re-register www.hartismere.co.uk for the following two years.

Because the site was generated from a database it's impossible to reproduce the site here, but a few screenshots still remain...
