New Website Back-End

Well @HomesHuntsville is our oldest website and has been needing a software upgrade for sometime. I had been putting it off as long as I could, given the success of the older version but the time had arrived and it had been 3 years, so there was lots of new smarter stuff.

This was a technical challenge in that the website has 100’s of thousands of pages indexed and the new software had one area that would require some url modifications. So long story short, I had to write some custom software that would accomplish the 1000’s of 301 redirects that the search engines require for their happiness, and also so that those indexed links would still bring you to the proper page.

Version 2 Google Maps is gone, replaced with Version 3. WordPress is completely current, some minor layout changes, new interactive search, and more complete listing details was the objective. All is done and all is backed up!

Thanks For Your Patience

While there were some minor hitches yesterday morning and I did receive a few nasty-grams, as expected 🙂  …I am especially appreciative of the emails I have received over the last couple of days complementing the site’s ease of use, etc.

Searches will be a bit slower for a week or so as the internal MySql query cache adjusts to its new environment but then we will be back to rocket speed. The page cache will assist until then and the bots feed it constantly the more use the faster the site gets.

I am always open to user input and suggestions, in fact it has been feedback from clients that has driven the direction we are now headed in. …you can contact me directly if you wish: tim@athomesrealty.com

Kind Regards …Tim
