Having tried to split the Church website in two last night for ease of maintenance, I found the following website authoring rules came into play:
1. What you think will take 30 minutes takes 4 hours.
2. The simpler the apparent change, the more likelier it is to bring down the whole house of cards.
3. The software never has the feature you desperately need. This law is best stated by the software manufacturer’s maxim never demand one click when a thousand will do!
5. No matter how good (or otherwise) the eventual site looks in the authoring software it always looks a hash when published.
5. Browsers always show your the attempt before last at publishing your efforts.
6. The more the you want to get to bed
the slower the computer runs.
Are there any more?
