This morning, the new City Of Melbourne website went live. This has been the culmination of 4-5 developers over a 6 month period – using SharePoint 2007 Publishing Sites.
Some tricky SharePoint code, and LOTS of customization, layout and WebParts.
Here’s a quick overview (the techo bits) :
- SharePoint 2007 (MOSS)
- 2 master pages, with 4 different colour styles (seasonal)
- 27 page layouts
- 35 Web Parts
- Web service integration to back end ASP.NET + SQL webapp
- Public-facing wizard-style ASP.NET website to enter/edit Events directly in SharePoint
- Custom search
- Virtual Earth
- Weather feeds
- Cookie-based “MyPicks”
A truly epic-scale Content Management System – an enterprise business solution using a Microsoft product stack & custom dev.
So – how does it look ? Well, have included some before and after shots, as with any “renovation”…
