Technology of this website

The technology used to produce this website includes:

Content Management System

The Drupal CMS system is used as the underlying base, on top of this the Zen Theme is used as the basis for custom theming of the site.

Wordpress is used for Ruth and Paul's pages, see blog technology page for details of Wordpress configuration.  I decided to use Wordpress for these pages as I have found Drupal blog engine to be quite limited and it is quickly becoming further dated as Wordpress continually improves their functionality.


Thankfully Drupal uses the brillant JQuery library for its javascript functionality which makes incorporating a wide range of other plugins very simple:

Photo Galleries

The photo galleries use the Airtight Interactive flash galleries SimpleViewer, AutoViewer, Postcard Viewer, and Andrew Berg's PhotoStack viewer.
