Since there hasn’t been much content up on this blog lately, I figured I’d point out what I have been working on. Over the last week, the Office of Student Media has re-launched Connect2Mason, a website built to cover breaking news and converge content from all of our various Student Media outlets. The new site is up and it has some pretty cool features.
For one thing, the new C2M has been upgraded from Drupal 5 to Drupal 6, which brings its own share of problems. The biggest stumbling block we encountered was the change from Views 1 to Views 2, an essential module we use in C2M. However we’ve been able to solve most of the issues. I think the new site looks pretty good, and I’d love to hear feedback. The old site is visible at http://drupaltest.masonstudentmedia.com/ (though it doesn’t really work, you can just see it). The new site is in place at http://connect2mason.com.
Some of the nifty new features include Facebook and Twitter integration and a very cool content slider.
Check out what I’ve been working on and tell me what you think.
