Community Website Redesign

Worked with a local temple to migrate their website from Joomla 1 to Drupal 7, using Google Apps for Nonprofits to distribute content development, information architecture and project management planning and collaboration.  I used Drupal's Open Church distribution as a starting point, adding (among other things) Simplenews Content Selection and a landing page Panel system that displays the most recent content entry from various categories.

The highlight of this work was leveraging community development and planning. Community circumstances (a new Rabbi, years of administrative neglect) called for developing new patterns of communication and documentation.   I held two Google Apps training sessions for all members who would be developing or updating content, and used a site map linked to each page to coordinate work and indicate project status.
