StikiPad Template CSS

I’ve added a nice CSS template for the StikiPad online Wiki service to the files area. It uses the “Classic” layout style – just duplicate that in your “My StikiPad”, then paste in the new CSS and update the reference to it in the Layout.

NewOrleans.com

Last month I completed development work on NewOrleans.com, the site for the city of New Orleans. This was a massive rework of a legacy site, some parts of which had been around for many, many years. The new deployment’s core is the Joomla CMS. Supporting are phpAdsNew for banner ads, Gallery2 for photos, and Simple Machines Forums.

JackRabbitTheMovie.com

I just finished a little project for a friend; building a site for his upcoming Indy movie (hey, I’m 5 miles from Hollywood, what do you expect). It’s fairly basic, but it does use Exposé for the various photo galleries.

Adult Content Mambot

This weekend I’m releasing a little Mambot for Joomla/Mambo that I built for a project at a TV station. It’s intended for sites which need to link out to adult content and puts up an age verification dialog before proceding to the link. The code is a little basic, there is no nice control panel to set the text for the pop-up. That can all be edited in the files – this needed to be done in a hurry so niceties were left for later.

SpeedGeezers.com Gateway v4

I finished work on the new gateway for the sim-racing enthusiast site this weekend. It’s basically a hand-coded XML-driven directory of all the leagues and projects we host on the server, plus a nice open-source news script I integrated. The look and feel was kept very clean and subtle so it is more contemporary. [ Link ]

Another year, another code base

{mosimage}For 2005 I’m trying out a new code base for the Silicon Chisel site. This CMS is called “Mambo” – it’s undergone a massive re-write since the last time I looked at it. I switched because I liked Mambo’s presentation and content handling a little better than LDU for this kind of application. So much of LDU’s power was not being used, but managing the actual news items was more work than it should have been because of what that system was meant to do best. So Mambo seems like a good thing to try for a year.

Also, the themes for Mambo had a cleaner, more professional look than what was available for LDU. LDU themes are more game-related … while they look nice, they aren’t very “corporate.”
