Landis Website: New and Easy to Use

By Wilma Jozwiak

About a decade ago, we moved our web­site from an attrac­tive but dif­fi­cult to main­tain plat­form. The new one allowed us to accept reg­is­tra­tions for class­es, process pay­ments for mem­ber­ships and dona­tions, and keep the cal­en­dar of upcom­ing events cur­rent. That site served us rea­son­ably well for years, but this past year vis­i­tors using Chrome found they could not access the site. In addi­tion, tech­nol­o­gy had moved on to big­ger and bet­ter things.

Now with the help of Al Ses­sions, a local web devel­op­er, we’ve been able to move to a much more respon­sive, eas­i­er to nav­i­gate, and still love­ly site on a new plat­form. The new site takes advan­tage of the cur­rent best prac­tices for usabil­i­ty, as well as allow­ing us some neat bells and whis­tles we didn’t have access to on the oth­er platform.

We think the new site is a huge improve­ment, and we hope you will, too. We invite your input — do you like it? Are there things you think could still be improved? Let us know by con­tact­ing us at info@​landisarboretum.​com.

Al Ses­sions is a Sch­enec­tady-based web devel­op­er always look­ing for chal­leng­ing new projects. A port­fo­lio web­site of his work and his con­tact infor­ma­tion can be viewed at https://​owlen​ter​pris​es​llc​.com.
