321321.com is the home of the photo gallery for Charlotte and Conrad’s.  The site was started in 2001, soon after Lottie was born, and before photo sharing sites like Flickr and Picasa (or even Facebook) had become popular or had even become part of the general day-to-day web experience.

The key audience for 321321.com is Lottie and Conrads immediate family namely: their grandparents, uncles, aunts, god parents, nieces and nephews.  321321.com was started so those dear to us could see Lottie and then Condrad’s development, given we and they live on different continents.

From 2001 to 2010 321321.com was powered by NetObjects Fusion.  It was initially builts using NetObjects 4 (released in 1999).  Over time as NetObjects Fusion was upgraded so was the code for 321321.

In 2011, 321321.com swapped  to being powered by WordPress.  One of the reasons for the popularity of WordPress is that for such a complex product it is really easy to use, its intuitive and you don’t need specialist software installed on your computer.  All you need is an internet connection.

To see the archived 321321.com galleries for the period 2001 to 2010 click on the Archives link at the top.  In 2015 the archived NetObjects webcode was updates to keep it HTML 4 compliant using NetObjects 2015.  It was a bit of a labour of love!
