Peashooter/CSTwo is now SiteTogether

I helped create Peashooter in 2007. It was a major undertaking. The goal was to create a system for YMCAs that was easy for users to navigate (especially in terms of finding classes) and easy to maintain and update. Over the past 9 years the system has necessarily evolved with changing technology and the input of numerous users and managers. Each update made the system a little better.

For almost a year I've been in a role where I'm not just maintaining the system, but charting it's course into the future. I want to make Peashooter better -- more useful. I want to make Peashooter the best way a YMCA can manage its online presence.

The way you contact us has already changed and the system will continue to change and improve. It makes sense to take this opportunity to reflect on what the system does and how we refer to it. What the system does best is let your entire staff manage online content without fear and with expert help when needed. It's a system that lets your staff and our experts make a SiteTogether.

Along with re-launching as SiteTogether, this month we'll be rolling out a major improvement in security and in SEO. The update includes an improved login process, default canonicalization of www. URLs, and always on HTTPS. This is just the beginning of big things for SiteTogether. We'll be sharing a road-map of future features and improvement and asking for feedback from all of our users. Thank you for choosing Peashooter/CSTwo and SiteTogether!
