Take Control Site Now Running on ExpressionEngine

We’ve just finished a several-month effort to rewrite the extensive Take Control Web site in the ExpressionEngine content management system. Previously, we’d been using largely static files with a small number of dynamic elements, but as the site grew, it became unmanageable. With the talented help of Adam Khan of EngagingNet, we abstracted everything that we were doing into templates and database tables and rebuilt it in ExpressionEngine, which runs on top of MySQL and Apache.

Some things - notably URL formats - have changed, but for the most part, the site should look and work the same, and despite the new URLs, all old URLs should still work. If you notice any problems, please let me know at ace@tidbits.com and I’ll check into it.

Thanks, and I certainly hope there’s no inconvenience for users at all.

cheers… -Adam C. Engst, Take Control publisher and chief Web monkey
