This rebuild project was timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the journal. Although the printed version has had an online presence for nearly 10 years now, this new Drupal site is the boldest departure DIP has yet made from its printed form. The content is still available in its conventional volume/issue listing. But the careful keyword indexing on all journal abstracts, means that you can now sort abstracts into topic and regional lists. There is a guided search to help readers narrow their search results, and every journal article is complemented by a list of other similar content from other issues. The site retains its full multi-lingual functionality, and there are new spaces for web-only content including a blog and bookshelf area for reading lists.
We partnered with Wave for the planning and graphic design elements of the project. Their final design makes imaginative use of Oxfam photography together with a tool that loads a new picture with each page view. Their design is based on clean, well structured xhtml code in a non-table based layout and using cascading style sheets (CSS) for all the presentational information. This improves the site’s chances in search engine content rankings and also makes pages quicker to download, much more accessible to all users and easier to update.

Support and development tickets

Launching your web site may mark the end of a long and weighty project. It's also the beginning of a new section in the life of the site – where it settles into getting on with its users. This commonly involves comments, feedback and occasional bug reports – many of which can be responded to with small changes by our developers. Luckily the GreenNet web projects team is on hand to support you and your website after the launch party is over and the project completion notes are written.

To make it easier to get help from us along the way we provide Support and Development Tickets that you can use to get help with just about anything, including things like:

  • adding the logo of a new funder
  • changing your address details in the site's footer
  • installing a new site traffic monitor
  • rearranging the blocks on a page
  • reordering a list of items by date rather than alphabetically
  • changing the Twitter feed that's featured on your home page
