Hello, I just started a website for my troop
(http://www.troop356lowell.org ), and I am looking for your opinion on
what it needs, and how it could get better. I want it to load fast (for
our 56k friends) and I want it to be brief, and get to the point. I
thought about doing a photo gallery, but since our troop is relatively
new, we don't have very many pictures of campouts. I thought about a
troop history, but also, the troop is new. Please help me with your
ideas. I am fairly skilled in HTML, but I am not very good with CSS
Any help with ideas for the site would be very helpful.
Re: Website Ideas
Bulletin boards are pretty worthless on rarely visited sites like a troop
website. I doubt anybody is going to ever look at the bulletin board
since there will be few postings. Bulletin boards have to have lots of
postings for people to read and respond.
A calendar is the most useful thing on a troop website as long as the
calendar is kept up to date with the latest changes.

You can check out the site I maintain www.troop2819.org.
I try to keep it simple and focused. The one item that is accessed the
most is the troop calendar. There are a lot of calendar packages out
there, the one I am using is a perl script. The troop info is in a text
file. Easy to update, and it displays in a number of formats. I have a
photo album that is made using dreamweaver, it has a package that creates
the thumbnails and links them to a larger photo. I do not put names of
anyone with the photos, any names are first name only and only if I have
a signed consent form from the parent. I would try to keep the site
focused and easy to maintain. if you are ot careful it will grow large
and consume a lot of time.
