Vernal Creative has updated the YBCA:You arts experience sharing site to enhance the experience on small screens. From my perspective this was mostly about making sure the jQuery-powered features worked well. The full size site uses some modals, which don’t work well on small screens, so I reworked those to be a sort of pseudo-modal that temporarily commandeers the screen.

This is my first BuddyPress site, made once again in cahoots with vernal creative and free range studios. The social functions let member organizations share ideas and tools, while non-member visitors may browse the organization directory, tools, publications, blog, news, and more. The interface sports a couple of varieties of jQuery sliders, data tables, custom widgets, Geo Mashup map, and a lot of BuddyPress enhancements for members and administrators.

I worked with Vernal recently to implement this member site that provides “an online logbook for keeping track of your artistic experiences”. There were no maps here, but a lot of jQuery work to provide front end forms with a nice user experience. Event logic is always a challenge on the server side, but worked out nicely in this case with a WordPress custom post type and a few meta fields. Now I need to visit the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and see some of the things people are discussing using my code…

This video sharing application was built with the CodeIgniter PHP framework and makes heavy use of the Facebook API. Both of these were new to me when I came on board to fix some problems with the existing application. My impression of CodeIgniter is good, I may use it again for web applications that don’t need a whole content management system. The Facebook API does not leave such a good impression. Despite a maze of online documentation, I had to learn the important things through experimentation. I’ve learned a lot about sharing content, especially with Facebook, but the customized videos are still magic to me!
