Burning Flipside Project



A much-needed MAJOR upgrade for the burningflipside.com website - from Drupal 5.x to Drupal 6.x (or maybe Drupal 7! We'll see how far we get)




  • Caleb, Benji, Mike and Benbot worked on views and got almost all of the views re-created from the D5 site.
  • Shannou did an evaluation of the website from a User Experience (UX) perspective, and created wireframes demonstrating a new, more streamlined Information Architecture (IA) to make the site easier to use.
  • Monk & Mike found a kick-ass theme (Paradox) and set it up for the dev site
  • Benbot worked on flipside flame, added facebook sharing widgets
  • Benji worked on the warehouse calendar 
  • plus a lot of people learning about drupal!


  • trial upgrade to D7 - notes added to GDoc
  • set up openatrium to create a private intranet for restricted-access organizing for lead volunteers and completed functionality to meet requirements to replace og functionality in D5
  • started on data migration for D5 og data to D6 openatrium site
  • more work on customizing the theme
  • finished the warehouse calendar
  • did an analysis of needs based on UX/IA evaluation/wireframes & created tasks to implement the new IA
  • started creating views for new IA
  • recreated volunteering process with "signups" module
  • create leads menu for easy access to relevant tasks for lead volunteers 

Sunday: focus on: testing, permissions, bugs, documentation

  • switched to a new base theme which is based on drupal conventions, caught the customizations up with the first theme
  • spec'd out data migration needs, defined a plan
