The Peer Partnership
Web Site

Once the Infopeople web site was up and running, it was time to start on a sister site for The Peer Partnership, the consulting division of the ITR Group.

Design Philosophy

Basically, I wanted the Infopeople, Peer and ITR Group web sites to look like they belonged together. Thus I simply started with the same web page template and cascading style sheet and changed the colour scheme.

The Tools

The following software tools were used to build the Infopeople web site:

  • Etomite CMS
    (running on a Linux platform using Apache, MySQL, PHP and phpMyAdmin)
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer v6.0
  • Microsoft Windows XP Professional
  • Adobe PhotoShop CS
  • Adobe ImageReady CS
  • Adobe Illustrator CS
  • WS_FTP for Windows
  • HTML Tidy
  • NoteTab Pro
  • TopStyle Pro

Platform

The Peer Partnership web site runs using the Etomite Content Management Systems, an open source solution released under the GNU license scheme. Etomite is a CMS solution built using the PHP scripting language with MySQL for the database.

Several Etomite Snippets were created to generate various elements of the web pages, e.g. the page crumbs, various menus, page specific meta tags etc. Snippets were also used to generate pages from the documents database, e.g. site map, news listing etc.

The DHTML Menu used for the main top menu is licensed from Milonic.

The web site is hosted by JaguarPC on servers running the Linux operating system, using the Apache web server.

Web Standards

The Peer Partnership web site respects W3C standards. The web site is currently validated to XHTML 1.0 Transitional with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

Site Construction

Various page elements were built and/or adapted to the Peer colour scheme using Adobe PhotoShop CS.

Then it was time to research and write the content, and build the required web pages. As Peer had never had a web site before, it was all done from scratch.

The Results

The Peer Partnership web site looks best on 1024 x 768 or better resolution displays.

The new The Peer Partnership web site went live in early October 2005.
