I need examples of sites that handle lots of text well. I'm working on a school website that has a ton of info to organize and present. The site is built on Wordpress. I'm not in charge of what the site is built on and decisions like that. For instance, I can't change the template structure, since the site I work on is part of the larger school system and everything kind of has to look the same.
But, anyway, I think the template is fine. It's just that all the text info was dumped in, with a couple of bullet-point lists and tables (which WP hates) to organize things. My job is to basically untangle the mess of text and make the site look clean and easy to use. I'm going to add in some images to break things up a bit, but I'm looking for more ideas.
Any suggestions of sites that do this well? I'm looking at other school's sites, but I'm not impressed by them, tbh.
