Having had the same design for our last website for over two years, we decided it was time for a new look. In line with our WordPress fixation, the new website has been unashamedly shoe-horned (in a day I might add) into a WordPress 2.9.2 installation.
WordPress is a state-of-the-art publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability.
We have added a small Google Adwords advertising banner to the middle column on the website – this will hopefully help to cover the costs of our hosting, and allow us to introduce a Libsyn podcast hosting account in the near future.
We hope you like it.
Karen Human Rights Group
Karen Human Rights Group (KHRG) is a small grass-roots organisation documenting the human rights situation of people in rural Burma.
One of our developers undertook a redesign and redevelopment of the KHRG website whilst working for KHRG, which began with an assessment of the current website – looking at its design, speed to download & visitor statistics.
A series of documentation was drawn up including sitemaps & wireframe diagrams detailing the proposed new design & functionality. This was followed by full page mock-ups in Photoshop.
The new website has been developed in HTML and PHP with a MySQL database storing report information. Search & donation functionality has been introduced to the website. A password-protected admin area allows KHRG to update sections of the website themselves, and a Dreamweaver template system has been put into place for updating static website content.
Delivery of the website was followed up with several training sessions, and a training manual containing all the information required for KHRG to update and maintain the system themselves.
