Pro Photo Supply to revert to old website design
Citing concerns about customers missing the “ketchup and mustard” color scheme that vanished with the website redesign, sources familiar with the matter have confirmed that Pro Photo Supply will be re-launching its old website at www.prophotosupply.com.
The old site was built in the early 2000’s and only recently replaced by a new design. While the new site makes use of modern technologies, like responsive design to function better on mobile devices, users seem to miss the nostalgia of the old layout.
One customer was quoted as saying the old site fit perfectly on his 800x600 pixel CRT monitor, and that was just fine for him, and why do things need to keep changing, anyway?
One of the key functions of the old site was that is was created without the use of a Content Management System (CMS). To make sure the re-launch is done correctly, Pro Photo Supply’s web team will be rebuilding each page of the old site individually, without the use of a CMS. This means many pages simply won’t work and that outdated information may not be updated in a timely manner, but it’s necessary in order to capture the essence of the old site.
Happy April 1st!
