This Thread is to keep all members informed of what is going on, concerning the implementation of the new Illini-Nation.net.  The goal is to have the site read to go by spring 2010.  There is a lot to plan and accomplish, but we are positive we can meet - or even exceed - our timeline goal.  

I have roughly outlined some of the plans that are going to take place.  The outline is so all members can follow along and remain up-to-date on what is going on here at I-N.

The only concrete plan now is the forum.  I will expand on the other steps as I near completion of the previous.  Also, these are not all of the steps that are going to be created, just the beginning phase.  Here is what is going to be happening. :

STEP 1
  • Run through forum upgrade to ensure no errors - off site.
  • Create Template for new forum.
  • Upgrade current forum to a newer version - this will result in the forum being down for awhile.
  • Implement new template to upgraded forum.
  • Install new "features" to forum - still in planning.

STEP 2
  • Create "front end" of Illini-Nation.net.

Step 3
  • Create "News System."

Step 4
  • Create "Photo/Video Gallery."

Step 5
  • Setup Illini-Nation.net merchandising system.
