85XR.com has a new website!  After six years of batteling a straight HTML website, I decided it was time to learn something new and improve 85xr.com.

After six years of batteling a straight HTML website, I decided it was time to learn something new and improve 85xr.com.  For this, I choose to implement Joomla and a few mods to make the pictures work well.  Now, all I have to do is create a new page and point it to the folder with all of the pictures.  The album is created automatically!  Talk about a time saver.  The old site required me making thumbnails of each picture, putting those in a table, and then manually linking them to the right full size picture.  

Another cool feature of this site is that the front page is also dynamically generated.  My latest projects, events, news, etc, will automatically appear on the front page, so finding the new stuff should be much easier.  

I should also mention that not all of the content from the old 85xr.com site is on the new one.  I only moved the more recen, bigger projects.  If you need to access the old 85xr.com website, you still can!  Just point your browser to www.85xr.com/85xr_old and you will see the old site still in tact.  

Let me know if you find bugs!
