This is a serious work in progress.
Three days ago, I didn't know anything about Joomla. I got past the installation, and started populating with content. The first thing on the agenda is getting all of the articles and pertinent blog posts migrated (copied) to the new site as well as put meta tags and descriptions on them.
While all of this is going on, I am having to design menus and figure out the best way to organize the content. The organization has to intuitive for a user that doesn't know what might be there. I think that the organization is the toughest part of this.
So, if you want to play along, feel free to drop in. If you are on in the evening, you might even see the site change around you while you are there. Buttons will pop up on menus. Themes will change. Content will show up... and then move.
It certainly isn't "live" for public consumption, but for those that like watching races just to see wrecks... this might be fun... and it will last for weeks.
