Amtrak's History of America's Railroad

The new design puts the emphasis on Amtrak's blog. As a result, the lower half of the centerfold has been updated to feature teaser information about recent blog entries.

In addition, Six Feet Up implemented a custom blog template that supports embedded videos for a richer experience.

Finally, the ubiquitous "ShareThis" feature was added to the blog post template to allow visitors to easily share stories with their favorite social media networks.

Indiana Historical Society

Once guests visit the Indiana Historical Society (IHS) website, they will want to come back to see the latest changes and updates.  Six Feet Up has ensured that visitors will never run out of new content to learn what is new at IHS.

By leveraging the product Quills, Indiana Historical Society staff members have the opportunity to write their own blog posts, keeping guests in touch with the very latest happenings at the Society.

The blog landing page supports the display of an image with each specific blog post (a feature that was not previously available in the Quills product). Images may be landscape or portrait orientation, and are automatically scaled to fit the width or height of the frame. They are placed flush left against the frame edge for a clean and modern look:

Six Feet Up also enabled blog pages to support images, slideshows and movies. This was done by extending the "weblog" entry type to use "mediaSelection" and "mediaReference". Rich media is displayed in the top right corner of the content area via the same macro used on other templates throughout the site.

More recently, the Facebook Social Commenting tool was set up to replace the original blog commenting product. This allows content contributors to moderate and manage comments via a Facebook dashboard.

Finally, guests are able to stay connected with Indiana Historical Society through their favorite social media: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Flickr sites, as well as through an RSS feed of the site:
