Deepdene Bears Cricket Club web site
A couple of weeks ago I finished building a new web site for a friend's cricket club. Check out the Deepdene Bears Cricket Club web site at www.deepdenebears.com.
For this web site I decided to use a content management system / community portal approach. After looking at quite a few open source solutions, I settled on CPG-Nuke as the best way forward (see www.cpgnuke.com). CPG-Nuke comes out of the box with a CMS framework, phpBB forums and Coppermine photo gallery already integrated, plus other modules for functions like News, FAQ, Encyclopedia, Surveys, Downloads and Web Links.
None of the available themes seemed appropriate for a cricket club with green and gold team colours, so I proceeded to build my own CPG-Nuke theme. I think it came out okay. Best of all, so far the club members seem happy with their new web site.
