My best challenge for this compendium of Jewish LGBT resources was the highly-classified equality guide geo search. The “I’m looking for” menu (enhanced with Chosen) allows geo searches for specific taxonomy terms and also some pre-defined combinations of terms. The separate, extra-important affiliation selector combines with this choice. Whew! There were lots of other features elsewhere on the site for me to dig into also, making this a large and satisfying project. The rest of the team came from Free Range Studios and Vernal creative.

I did a lot of custom WordPress development for this site, but the highlight is the browsing interface for their large library of publications. Publications are presented in a table using the great open source DataTables jQuery plugin. We needed even more filtering abilities to refine the table contents, so I wrote an add on for DataTables to allow filtering the table based on unique values in the table columns. You have to play with it to get how cool this is! Geo Mashup is also featured in the global map of partner sites.

The locations of Tata’s impressive video teleconferencing rooms are presented on a customized Geo Mashup map, with the both an info window summary for each marker, more information about a selected location in the sidebar, and a list of locations by continent below. The CSS wizards at Vernal managed the stylish info window, and I tricked out a few jQuery video slideshows like the one on the home page.

This site extolling a gypsy jetset lifestyle had a few special Geo Mashup requests for its atlas: custom markers, tabbed info windows, and a user submission form. I decided to do the form using a standard WordPress page template – almost everything needed is already available right there. A little extra help from the cookies for comments plugin helps keep spam away. Now I just need to trot the globe for a few years to find the perfect submission.
