Website Change Again!

I promise that the website won’t always change. We were previously using iWeb. It’s a nice little MAC program, but it limits the extensibility of the site and only allows for one author. I have now moved the website to WordPress. It’s a blogging application, but the theme has been tweaked to serve as a CMS. Additionally, people may register as members and post comments on posts and pages.

If you have any comments, questions or concerns, contact webmaster@itesol.org
