My maiden Drupal webportal
I have been asked to develop a web portal for my departments upcoming international conference, iconct09.
First i showed them drupal.They were using old and outdated proprietary server side scripting language ASP.
I took care of drupal modules,juniors took care of the themes, i would like to mention some of the modules i used.
Conference ->Awesome module by zyxware technologies, i personally thank Mr.Santhosh raju who now maintains the module for zyxware,When ever i say there is an issue with the module, he helped me by fixing the code immediately, i sometimes wondered is this an example for cathedral and Bazaar, yes it is, the developer directly gets feedback from the end user and changes things.
Email registration -> allows user to login using email id
Feedback -> Cool floating feedback bar
CCK ->content construction kit (needed by Conference module)
Auto assign Role ->Assigns default role to newly registered users
SMTP authentication support -> allows you to use another smtp server (local windoze smtp server or gmail smtp server)
Admin menu and Admin menu drop down -> Cool drop down menu for admins
Jquery Menu -> To enable cool expandable jquery menus.
Backup and Migrate -> To backup mysql database
Theme -> Acquia Marina
Have a look at the web portal and feel free to give a feedback http://www.mepcoeng.ac.in:81/iconct09
For some people their organization may be blocking port 81, so use a web proxy like https://ctunnel.com/
