I’m pleased to announce a trio of newly launched websites. Each site runs The Pencilcase, but otherwise, couldn’t be more different:
- The British Columbia Environmental Network (BCEN) is the British Columbia chapter of the Canadian Environmental Network, an umbrella organization dedicated to strenghening and co-ordinating environmental activism. Read more about them at their new site! This site promises to be one of our largest, with already nearly 1000 pages of content at launch, with more being added daily. One of the neat things about this site is that site members can contribute content: submitting news articles, creating their own pages, uploading events to the event calendar, etc.
- The Canadian Blood & Marrow Transplant Group (CBMTG) is ‘a national, voluntary, and multi-disciplinary organization providing leadership and promoting excellence in patient care, research and education in the field of blood and marrow transplantation (BMT).’ For this project, we’ve also linked the Pencilcase’s security features with CBTMG’s existing third-party member system for members-only pages, run by Advanced Solutions International. We completely re-skinned their interface to match the site’s. I can’t show it to you (seeing as it’s for members only, and neither you nor I are members), but trust me, it’s a vast improvement. Hooray for CSS Trickery!
- Finally, California Liquid Fertilizer (CLF) sells, well, liquid fertilizer. I don’t really know what that is, and I have to admit, it sounds a little gross, but there you go. People still need to hear about it and buy it, and that’s where we came in. This site will shortly be undergoing a phase II project, wherein we actually develop e-commerce support on the site for people to order their liquid fertilizer online, but for now, this site now provides CLF with a new marketing platform with which to get their name out there.
So there you have it! If you notice any glaring glitches or bugs on any of these sites, please let me know.
