The McCourtney Institute for Democracy at Penn State

The open source CMS Plone was chosen for this project because it is the College of the Liberal Arts established platform. Six Feet Up created a new Plone 4.3 instance, implemented a new theme using Diazo, and added responsive design, making the site compatible in all browsers, mobile devices and iPads.

The site utilizes the Plone product collective.panels, which uses only one theme, yet allowed the team to build the homepage with portlets, creating a unique look and feel.

"We were able to deliver a sharp and responsive site that is ready for Plone 5 in only 3 weeks."

The site went from having just a landing page to be a full site with About, Projects, News, Events, Awards, People, and Archive pages.

Throughout the project, the Six Feet Up development team worked closely with the Penn State development team and held bi-weekly calls to discuss best practices and processes.

ReTrans (corporate site)

After ReTrans’ existing static website theme was converted into a Diazo theme for Plone, Responsive templates were added to the theme.  The site was optimized with different views for the desktop, tablet, and mobile. Now when a customer views the site on mobile they are presented with four large buttons, a condensed menu, and easy to read pages.

Indiana Historical Society

IHS Mobile viewAs more and more people are utilizing mobile and tablet devices, the Indiana Historical Society made it a priority to cater to their mobile users.
In response, Six Feet Up added responsive design templates to their site using Diazo rules. Additionally, since the initial website only supported Flash-based video files, we installed MediaElements.js, which provides support for .mp4 media files.
New template skins were also created to let content contributors embed video files via the TinyMCE visual editor.
