Magical UMW

Using the X-Ray goggles was much easier than I anticipated.  I’ve had some experience with html before, but this plug-in took care of the technical work for you.  I ultimately decided to edit UMW’s main site to make it fit within the Harry Potter universe.  I essentially made it appear that UMW is a magical school, reflecting this in much of the terminology and labels on the site.  I think my favorite part is a very small piece of editing towards the bottom, which states “Trump’s unconventional campaign has magical analysts puzzled.”  It makes it seem like the wizarding world is utterly perplexed by the rise of Trump!  Overall this was a fun exercise that demonstrates how malleable the web is and allows us to see how small changes can have big implications.  The full site can be viewed here.
