Healthy Back Bag

Healthy Back Bag Homepage

This site has some complex e-commerce features, including VAT handling, export order capability, various different product discount and combined purchase discounts, and more. Custom content types were generated to make it easy to add and manage the many small "box adverts" that link from each page to other relevant pages on the site. The Drupal theme was constructed to make a working version of a series of Photoshop designs. This was a long and complex job to achieve the page layouts, especially for products, required.

Skills Workshop

Skills Workshop: Home page

The long-standing Skills Workshop website was proving to be very time-consuming for the owner, Maggie Harnew, to keep updated. New contributors continued to send in new teaching resources, but the time taken to add resources to the site meant that a back-log was building up. Luckily, Maggie won the LSIS Star Award 2009 in the Skills for Life category, and the prize money funded conversion of the site into a Drupal content-managed site. This has enabled Maggie to spend more time concentrating on editing submitted resources, and less time having to maintain the web pages themselves.

Fill That Hole

Fill That Hole: Home page

For many decades the CTC had been running a pothole reporting system using pre-printed postcards. With the advent of online mapping, it became possible to report hazard locations via a website.

Fill That Hole was originally a small part of the large CTC Maps website project. But it soon became very popular with cyclists and other road users, and is now heavily used.

CTC Forum

CTC Forum: Home page

The CTC have had an online forum for discussing cycling issues for several years. The previous forum software was custom-built and was starting to show its age. In particular it was difficult for the CTC to moderate forum posts, leading to negative comments about the forum and then the CTC in general.
