The Peer Partnership
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.
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 following software tools were used to build the
Infopeople web site:
- Etomite CMS
(running on a Linux platform using Apache, MySQL, PHP
- 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
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
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
The web site is hosted by JaguarPC on servers running the Linux
operating system, using the Apache web server.
The Peer Partnership web site respects W3C standards. The web site is currently
validated to XHTML 1.0 Transitional with
Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
Various page elements were built and/or adapted to the
Peer colour scheme using Adobe
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 Peer Partnership web site
looks best on 1024 x 768 or better resolution displays.
The Peer Partnership web site went live in early October 2005.
