This design utilized Mediawiki 1.15.1, the already pre established Monobook skin and some strong CSS work as well as plug-in installation. The client insisted upon using the very familiar look and feel of the mediawiki software, which also powers Wikipedia.com and its assorted child websites. The reason for this is that users would be given a Wikipedia like experiences however dedicated only to plants and gardening.
The client laid out a ton of the footwork for me already, the majority of my job was to tweak the site and install plugins and offer css support. Some of the work on this site that I did included installation and modification of the AWS Forum plug-in, which offers users a browser based discussion forum with no additional need to sign in. Using this single sign on system allows users to seamlessly interact. In addition to that, I also modified and installed the SocialProfile extension, integrated Semantic Mediawiki for better response time, FCKeditor for ease of use and then assorted minor changes to the css stylesheet.
