The new website for the Sociology Department at NUIM Maynooth went live in March 2011. Once again I built this NUIM site based on a design by Eclipse Internet Services. Using Drupal, the Zen 2.0 base theme, the design specification and a number of jpeg images, I delivered a standards compliant and semantically correct XHTML theme.
The site had less functionality requirements than the NUIM library site but a little extra work on the design implementation. Some of the functionality I included, with the help of contributed modules, are events, news feeds, custom front page built using panels, wysiwyg editor, dropdown primary menus, views and site map.

The upcoming Drupalcamp is in Dublin city centre, Trinity College to
be exact, on the 20th and 21st of November. You can find out more, register
to attend and even submit suggestions for sessions on the website:
There are lots of other sessions for all levels and if you have not been at a Drupalcamp before I would highly reccomend you try this one out - not just for what you can learn (for free) but also for the social aspect.
The new website for the library at NUIM Maybooth went live this month. I built the site based on a design by Eclipse Internet Services. Using Drupal, the Zen base theme, the design specification and a number of jpeg images, I delivered a standards compliant and semantically correct XHTML theme.
Some of the functionality included, with the help of contributed modules, included an events calendar, news feeds and archive, custom front page built using panels, wysiwyg editor, dropdown primary menus, views and site map.
At the time of delivery the site was tested across mulitple browers, IE6, 7 and 8, Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera. Adjustments for non complient browsers were made using the Conditional Stylesheets module.

The www.menapia.com website was launched this morning. In keeping with the spirit of our Out-Of-The-Box offering, the site is running on a stardard Drupal install with no custom development. It is running under a Minnelli theme, which is a tableless, recolorable, multi-column, fixed width theme. Themes may be changed with the click of a button.
