For close to FOUR months, we’ve been working on a big SharePoint publishing site, which has just gone live today !
It’s ready for action – so come and take a look :
The team involved a bunch of OBS developers, testers, BA’s and project manager – as well as a team from City Of Melbourne (CoM) – thanks to all the folk in the Business Information Systems (BIS) department.
Here’s a few tidbits about the new site :
- Microsoft SharePoint 2007 Publishing site (MOSS)
- Custom master pages, page layouts & CSS
- Approx 25 custom coded webparts & user controls
- including AJAX enabled image gallery & post-a-comment
- Custom search controls for input & search results
- Telerik, AKS and ARF – to allow for W3C WCAG AA (Accessibility)
- Multi-lingual capabilities for Melbourne Library
- Different visual design for various sub-sites within the site hierarchy
- Implemented using ‘alternate CSS’ (see below)
- Mapping will be be included for phase 1.5
Here’s some screen shots of “before and after” :
… and, here’s some screen shots of the different ‘sub site’ pages. These all use the same webparts, navigation and other controls – with a different style & background image.

Was a BIG effort from lots of people – some trial & tribulations – and a big success in the end.
Thanks to all involved – let’s have a beer to celebrate !
