Evolution Band Web Sites

Evolution Band Web Sites

Professional and Modern

Both the web site and the admin area are fully tested to comply with latest W3C (XHTML 1.0, CSS and usability) recommendations. This is very important when developing a web site, and is something usually neglected by amateur web sites. Having valid code is very important to ensure that your web site displays across a variety of different browsers and machines. It also means that your site is future proof, and can be properly spidered and indexed by search engines such as Google.

 

All Evolution Band Web Sites are created by Lance Taylor, for A Web Design.

 

NEW 23/05/07: You originally had to spend hours resizing new galleries and creating thumbnails. Now simply locate the unmodified file on your computer and upload. The Evolution Admin software resizes the picture and also creates a thumbnail automatically! The new images are then visible in your gallery immediately.

The Web Site

We have used Serotone's web site as an example. Each page is live and dynamic and reads the data created in the admin area. Click the following link to see the web site in action. Click on the images to go directly to that page.
