A New Design for SFLC’s Website

By Aaron Williamson | April 18, 2011

SFLC is introducing our redesigned website today! We hope you like the new look. While the content is largely unaffected, we’ve made some improvements to the information design to make the content easier to access and understand. (Take a look at our new publications page for an example.) We also changed our default content license to Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 (formerly Attribution-NoDerivs).

On the backend, we’re still using the excellent free web framework Django running on top of the Apache HTTP Server. The new design brings the frontend up to date with emerging web standards, including HTML5. If you’re using a modern, standards-compliant web browser (like Mozilla Firefox 4), you might notice this in subtle ways, like in some of the free fonts we’re using.

We hope this redesign to be the beginning of an evolution, rather than a one-time change. We will continue looking for ways to make our content more useful and more accessible to you. To do that, we need your help! Please let us know if you can’t find something you’re looking for, or if there’s anything you’d like to see on our site that’s not there. And of course the tires always need kicking—if you notice anything broken or any invalid HTML, tell us about that too.
