This is a sideproject I’ve been working on for a while that I put into production very recently. It’s a web site for students where they can collaborate on assignments, share work, get work reviewed, ask questions etc. When I was an undergrad I always wanted a site like this; unfortunately, there really wasn’t one available. So, once I graduated (about 2 months ago), I decided to start putting one together.
The site is run on BBPress. The theme is completely custom, and it required lots of tweaking – both to template files and to some core files to get it to work more or less how I wanted. If you have any questions about how I did something with this theme let me know.
Also, if I may plug it, I had an idea for a unique advertising model (I think) that I couldn’t let go to waste – inspired by the million dollar homepage by Alex Tew… the entire background of the site is available as adspace for a measly $64.00 per square… the ads would create a mosaic that the content would overlay – becoming a part of the site’s design.
