Redesigned tomswarbirds.com went live 03.25.2018

March 27th, 2018

Our redesigned web site is now live and sitemaps submitted to search engines!


The new site opens with several improvements centered around a much improved user photograph and video image viewing experience on any platform from desktop to mobile ie “responsive”. The cornerstone software implemented is The Turning Gate’s “Backlight” product. The main advantage gained is improved publishing from Adobe’s Lightroom Creative Cloud with faster collection updating. We purchased the software package with TTG’s add-ons: pages, theater, galleria which permit really cool album customizations and full page displays. There are well over 4,000 images and over 100 youtube video links on our server with almost no lag on mobile loading when viewing on phone WiFi, LTE, 3G.


Our previous web site was actually two sites in one: hand coded html, java portal and piwigo album sql database. This worked well for 5 years with no downtime, timely auto updates and great support via piwigo’s forum. User comments redirected us to look for a more modern, clean and most importantly, a site viewable on phone, tablet, desktop. We accomplished all user requests and maintained full functionality of previous site.


So, if you’re reading this post stop over to tomwarbirds.com and take us for a test drive and please let us know what you think!
