Re: Legacy content recommendation


From: Bourne, Sarah (ITD)

In addition to the great advice others have provided, I recommend using care in defining "current or vital". Even if something is old, if it's still getting a lot of use, then it should meet that definition and is a candidate for remediation or replacement. This kind of web stats analysis is usually an important part of a project like this, so I suspect that it's probably part of your plan already. But perhaps it can be used as part of an on-going maintenance plan where the most-used content gets fixed, and content that isn't used should be considered for removal.
