Transition Network

The Transtion Network website is has been my biggest and most complicated web project to date. It was split into 5 phases beginning in September 2009 with the import and move from their old Transition Towns wiki to a new Drupal-based site. Later stages improved the site and added capacity, with the last phase ending December 2012.

It is big, well used and has a rich set of features including:

  • Blogs, news, social reporting, events and feeds from related sites.
  • Directories of Initiatives, Projects, Events, People and Resources across the movement - and world.
  • Thousands of users (nearing 10,000)
  • Extentensive mapping & location views
  • Integration with the news Sharing Engine that imports news for initiatives from around the web.
  • Organic Groups-based 'Community Microsites' that allow small initiatives to get a well featured web presence without having to run their own site.
