Forum för levande historia
- Forum för levande historia – 2009 - 2011
The Living History Forum is a Swedish public authority which, using the Holocaust and other crimes against humanity as a starting point, works with issues on tolerance, democracy and human rights from both a national and international perspective.
The old site was built with Drupal 5 + custom PHP. Upgraded the theme to Drupal 6. Upgraded a number of integrated systems to work with Drupal 6. Removed a lot of PHP code from template files in the theme and either replaced it with standard Drupal functionality or built custom Drupal modules for it. Replaced custom displays and formatting with standard CCK and Views functionality. The list goes on.
Not mush have changed for the visitors to the site so at first glance they did not get a lot for their money.
In the long run however they have a site that is easy to add content to, easy to extend with new features, built in a standard way making it easy for other developers to understand and work with it.
NodeOne put in excellent resources to get the theme in shape for the release.
