Darien Town Government’s Redesigned Website Is Online

It may be only temporary (we haven’t received an announcement, and there can always be glitches), but the Darien town government website has a new look.

Town Administrator Kate Buch said at a recent meeting that at least one person from each town government department was being trained on how to use the website.

Here’s what the Home page looks like (the pictures rotate):

Town Government Website 8-2-16

Hey, good lookin’ — part of what the revised town government website looks like on Tuesday afternoon.

 

The pictures on the Home page come from Wikimedia Commons (where these particular ones are free to use by anybody and posted without copyright).

Some of the old Web pages still look the same, as of late afternoon Tuesday, such as this one:

Web Page Darien TV79 8-2-16

The Darien TV79 Web page, still old school, as of late Wednesday afternoon.

 

In some cases, the old and the new pages are both on the Web, and clicking on links from one page to another will sometimes get you a “404” error page, sometimes get you another old-style page — but that’s the kind of thing that happens in a website transition.

This gives a sense of what the new and old Web pages look like. Here’s the old Town Administrator Web page (still on the Web as of late Wednesday afternoon):

Town Administrator Web Page OLD 8-2-16

Old-style Town Administrator Web page (we reached it from the old-style TV79 Web page)

 

Town Administrator Web Page NEW 8-2-16

New style Web page for the town administrator.

 

Error Page Town Website 8-2-16

Part of an error page you may get while tooling around the website as it transitions.
