Re-engineering Hackney content weeknotes 26/08/19

This week +Susan McFarland-Lyons has left me in charge of the week notes for the Re-engineering Hackney Content project whilst she enjoys a well-deserved break in Slovenia.

So, here you have it…

This short week has seen the team spend time fixing bugs and adjusting the styles on the live site meaning we are now ready to start creating the new templates for image blocks, and that will mean the final few pages will be complete – keep an eye out for the Mayor and Cabinet page.

+Carolina Gaspari and +Alan Jones are also working together with Commercial Estate Manager +Adam Jones to re-organise the information we have on the Properties Listing page, and following yesterday’s meeting, Carolina is now ready to start designing the templates for that page.

+Gillian Newman, who kindly carried out accessibility testing on the website last week has now provided us with the results. What the results show is that we do have some accessibility and usability issues, but these are things we can easily fix. Once those changes have been made we can then move full steam ahead with our one-to-one resident accessibility testing.

Last but not least, +Mohamed Mulla has just finished creating the backend fields for the homepage which will make it fairly easy for +Iain Sharp and Alan to manage content going forward. We are also that much closer to pushing the homepage to live, with Mo finishing the coding for desktop and mobile. We now await feedback and approval from our stakeholders, and with the green light from Susan, we may well have a live homepage before she arrives back in London.
