Just a thought
« on: February 21, 2018, 11:32:53 AM »
First of all, I want to thank the Website Baker Team for the time and effort they put into the CMS. Not only the updates of the CMS but also the forum works like a train and the reactions and solutions that are given in the forum come quickly and do not stop until there is a solution. Even if it requires tailor-made code.

Thank you! I can not say it enough!

The CMS has become one of the most powerful, flexible and user-friendly CMS that I know. I and all my customers love it.

I may not be the first to tap this item, but the website of WebsiteBaker.org is in need of change in my eyes. It would be great if this could be a showcase for the possibilities that WB now has as standard. At first I think of a renewed, modern template. In a later instance, or perhaps at the same time, it would be great to offer the site in multiple languages. I recently saw an offer from @Sky writer to contribute in English and I am willing to translate parts of the site into Dutch, bit by bit. I know that there are enough French-speaking and Spanish-speaking users who might want to provide a share of the translation and since German is your "home" language, that should not be a problem.

Let's see if we could, as a complete community, "pimp" WebsiteBaker.org. And maybe / hopefully as a result that the number of users will rise.

no question  ;-)

the homepage and all the subdomain's are in the top 3 of our ToDo-List.
#1 was the publishing of the WB-Version 2.11

target is: one basic design for all domain's, maybe in different color styles, but only my personal opinion

We have already spoken to Sky Writer and he has agreed to participate. We would also like to use other languages such as Dutch if a longer-term relationship is possible. From the history of WB, Dutch, English and German have developed into the main languages of WebsiteBaker. There are probably most of the users there and thus also the possibility to translate a necessary text in a hurry. Experience has shown that this is not always possible with other languages during this period. You also have to see that more languages require more work, but on the other hand the access to the respective CMS has to be kept to a minimum.

Perfect! I am very curious about the result. You can count on me for at least a part off a the translations in Dutch.

How do you determining the look and feel of a new site? Is that by the board of the WebsiteBaker.org or are there only a few people who determine this (Dietmar - Manuela and you for example)?

Another thing is whether it has been thought to send a press release to the known and lesser-known channels to announce the new version. That too could provide a boost to users.
