Using Google Apps Script with Google Sites
This site was hosted on Google Sites but I decided not long ago to migrate it to WordPress. Although Sites has improved significantly since I started to use it, it is still very restrictive in what you can do. I also had valid concerns about the SEO effectiveness of redirecting domains to google sites. It seems that although Google indexes it very well, Bing (and therefore Yahoo) does not, and you can’t seem to get a DMOZ listing for a redirected site.
I am leaving the content as is for those of you who have now migrated to the new Google Site in the hope that you will find some content useful. All may not be relevant anymore or you may have to tweak some things to make them work with the new Sites version.
Google Apps Script
When my site was on Google Sites, I set myself the challenge to see what we could do with GAS. The normal usage is to write various scripts to enhance the experience on the site, and no doubt I’ll do some of that, but first I’m going to create a webapp to access the site content.
