Background on Home 4

I’ve been receiving inquiries about the deployment of our new home site, so I thought I’d post some background in case you’re interested. Thanks to David Kelly of Dickinson College for giving me permission to share his excellent questions.

Question: What was your motivation to move to an open source CMS?

We were charged with a very targeted task, to improve the first impressions presented to visitors when they arrive at the top levels of www.bates.edu

Question: What alternatives did you consider (both open source and commercial)?

We had been prototyping with Drupal, WordPress, and Expression Engine over about a year and chose WordPress for these sites.
