Writing about web page http://www.mathsoc.warwick.ac.uk/
I reworked the Warwick Mathematics Society wesbite a few months ago, and made it look way better than it did before, and made it much more flexible. I choose Drupal as my content management system, and found it to be very, very powerful.
I'm bored by the current look of the site though, and since content has been separated from presentation I can easily change the theme. A lot of the site works well, but some bits don't work quite how I wanted them to, but that's because they were added on top, instead of being designed in from the start, and the theme turned out to be not particularly extensible.
Apparently people really like the idea that it changes colour, so I might keep that feature whilst making the site 'look better'. I really want to make the top header section smaller, so that more content can fit on the screen.
Fixed, fluid or elastic? hmmm...

Is it just me or is the design of the Students' Union website a little crap.
When I'm logged in I count 21 main navigation buttons! Have they ever heard of a sub-menu?
