Updated Website

July 18th, 2010 by Curtiss Grymala

We at Ten-321 Enterprises are extremely proud to announce a brand new website for the company. After months of hard work, we have finally unveiled an all-new site utilizing WordPress as the content management system (CMS).

How is it designed?

The design of the website is carefully crafted to be optimized for modern, standards-compliant browsers like Safari, Chrome and Firefox; but is also built to degrade gracefully in other browsers.

This new website makes use of many great new features of CSS3 and some of the nice additions to HTML5. Throughout the website, subtle drop shadows, rounded corners, custom fonts and more are used.

Where did the images come from?

The majority of the images used on this website (with the exception of our logo, which was created in-house) came from the Stock Exchange. A handful of the images were downloaded from All Free Downloads.

How was it built?

The entire website is now built on top of the WordPress platform, making use of some fantastic theme elements and plug-ins, as well as a little bit of custom code. This new website marks a departure from the custom CMS used for the last two incarnations of the website.

It is with mixed emotions that we also announce officially that support for that old CMS has officially come to an end. We began developing CAGCMS, the system that was previously used for this website and is still currently in use at DC Evolution, at a time when WordPress was still young. At that time, WordPress was still lacking many of the features we desired for our own site.

However, WordPress has progressed fantastically over the last few years, while development on CAGCMS stagnated out of the necessity to focus our development attention on customer projects. With the WordPress core being so far advanced, and plug-in development for WordPress happening so fervently, there was little left that WordPress lacked when it came to our needs. At this point, it makes little sense to even attempt to continue development on CAGCMS when we could throw our support behind developing small WordPress plug-ins to fill in the gaps, instead.

What do you think?

We would love to hear your feedback on the new website. What do you like? What don’t you like? What would you change if it was your website? Leave a comment and let us know what you think. Thank you for your interest. We look forward to working with you in the future.
