Greener Journeys site August 4th, 2010
A massive gap between posts there for which I apologise. It has been a busy couple of months for me though. At the end of June i said a tearful farewell to my colleagues at Anywhichway and moved onto pastures new. As of July i have taken up the post of Contracting Developer at The Crocodile, but more about them later. This post is about my final project at Anywhichway (which actually went live shortly after I left – compounding the delay on this post).
Greener Journeys is a campaign website aimed at encouraging people to get out of their cars and onto buses and coaches. The site contains loads of information on the cause, who’s involved in it and how they’re going about achieving their goals.
The site is built in Expression Engine – version 1.6 as sadly version 2 had not come out of beta when we started development. The site is fairly straight forward, content wise, and uses mostly static page types. There is, however, a news and events section, both of which automatically archive content, and a password protected ‘user resources’ area with downloadable goodies. Site pages also display related pages and documents on the site and the home page displays the latest news stories.
This is a really nice looking site (designed by the creatives at AWW of course) and was a great project to end on. See you around guys, i’ll miss you…
