Six years is a long time in internet time, so it definitely was time for WNYMBA to upgrade its web site technology. The old site was put together in 2004, using at-the-time state of the art php/MySQL database driven technology.
However, while the various pages were generated dynamically, much of the content was static and had to be edited manually to be updated. Some elements were tied to the lounge software so that updates could be made through lounge posts.
However, that posed a bigger problem where some folks got to thinking the lounge was WNYMBA rather than a bunch of posts by the community at large.
