New UCPGG.org launches

On December 8, 2009 ucpgg.org was relaunched with a new website in collaboration with the Wildfire Agency, Damien DeChurch, and myself.The old site needed a lot of work as you can see above. A CMS was built using WordPress for this project with a lot of heavy customization and the help of various plugins.

They also required a user forum, which I utilized Vanilla Forums and built a custom theme for that as well, to match the look of the site.

ucpgg.org's discussion forumI particularly liked the WordPress Custom Admin Branding Plugin. Clients can tend to think that WordPress is just a blogging platform so it helps to apply the Client’s logo to the Admin section of WordPress and this plugin does just that, with a few edits to their template files.
