Colleagues and friends, I am happy to announce the new website for Kansas City Kansas Community College, www.kckcc.edu. The site is the culmination of countless hours of planning, testing, and toiling. I'm announcing here because the site is powered by RadiantCMS, of course! I intend to make a detailed post on my personal blog about the site and the process, but here's a few stats to hold you over: 300+ Pages ~12 snippets 3-4 layouts 6 extensions (yes, we're running mental!) And much more... We are extremely happy with the ease-of-use and performance that Radiant provides our team (along with a rock-solid server, Litespeed). As time goes on, I intend to polish and release some of the extensions which include LDAP integration and ports of the Mailer and Search behaviors -- I'm sure you're itching for them! I submitted a proposal to RailsConf 2007 about our work. Wish me luck on that! And not to toot my own horn too much, but my design was chosen from 3 alternatives by the students, and thus I was responsible for the majority of the CSS and Photoshop work. As you might be able to tell, I take a lot of my design inspiration from John's work ;). Here's to a happy New Year, using Radiant! Sean Cribbs seancribbs.com p.s. During the process of launching the website, the college also changed ISPs. There may be intermittent connectivity problems until the process is complete.

Sean, Very nice, very no-nonsense. one question: which pages are truly dynamic? By that I mean not just HTML content statically stored in the DB, just for curiosiy? It's a good job considering it's for a public insitution and all the baggage that comes with. Commitee meeting, anyone? :)

Very nice ... would be interested in hearing about (if any) snags you might have run into, and also what the backend setup is (using Capistrano?, etc) ... good luck w/ RC07 acceptance, nice case study! - Jon
