Keshet

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…

RSF impact map adds content flow, AJAX loading, and more

Ever seen a map of custom markers synchronized with thumbnail images in a content flow that dynamically loads content including tabs, post listings, and a slide show? I hadn’t either! I was not certain it could be done, but perseverance paid off. The map is tied to the thumbnails, so an item selected in either…

Congressional Hunger Center – DataTables!

I did a lot of custom WordPress development for this site, but the highlight is the browsing interface for their large library of publications.

I think it really brings the reality…

Trakkers

Some time has passed since I worked with WordPressDevelopment.com on this site for athletes using the Trakker GPS system, but I see the site has since gone live. This was a heavy customization involving a modified Geo Mashup 1.2 and ExtInfoWindow library. There are a lot of little visual treats awaiting visitors in the various…
