My work

Use the links below to view web sites I have created and/or maintain. If you have any questions, please e-mail me.

While several of these web sites are political in nature, I do work on sites that aren't political in nature. I especially love working with non-profit organizations, community groups, and small businesses.

All of the web sites I work on run on Drupal. This is a Content Management System (CMS) that allows you to have a dynamic site without the site owner having to know html, css, or php. Updates to the site can easily be done in your web browser. There is even a WYSIWYG editor (What You See Is What You Get) similar to that of word processing software. This toolbar includes bold, underline, links, images, and more.

In addition to the sites below, this site (nu-look.net) also runs on Drupal. It's currently running a simplified theme while I work on a new look for the site that goes along with our new branding.

The most popular layout amongst site owners is the classic three-column (two smaller sidebars with a main content area in the middle); however, other styles are available.

I have trained others in the use of Drupal and CiviCRM, including dozens of staff members and volunteers at campaigns and non-profits, a course on Drupal for non-profits at a Portland Drupal Conference, and in a series of workshops at Washington State University - Vancouver.

I am currently working on a pair of books for working with Drupal web sites - one for web designers on creating and setting up sites, and a second on how to administer your site.

Democratic Party of Oregon

DPO Screenshot

Democratic Party of Oregon
http://www.oregondemocrats.org

PHP-based site using Drupal. Theme was created by someone else; however, I converted it to work with Drupal 5.x. and later 6.x. Also made changes to allow for a right-hand sidebar that is viewable by site admin, content editors, etc.

This site relies heavily on the Content Creation Kit (cck), Views, and Contemplate. The front page is a custom template using block regions. Each of the areas in the main area (Welcome, Spotlight, News, and Datebook) are a block, which enables the updating of information without harming the layout/look of the front page. The block only holds the inner content - the headers, layout, etc. are all controlled by a template file.

In addition to their main site, I also helped create a support site, an easy to clone base site for the state's county parties, and an internal site using organic groups.

Served as a resource for updates and additions until staff was prepared to take over working with the sites.

Also created a multi-site installation for more than 20 county parties on the DPO's web server.

Newer version (image on bottom): This is the PHP-based version of the site. The majority of graphic work was done by a graphic designer. I upgraded the site to a newer version of CivicSpace (and then onto Drupal 4.7, then 5.x and 6.x) and completely re-organized the site to make it more user friendly. I also reorganized the front page.

This site receives more than 6,000 visitors per month. During election season, it can easily get several times that number in visits.
