Université de Montréal - Centre d'études ethniques des universités montréalaises

A project for a research center where members come from various instututions. The site is bilingual: French, English. It features news, events with archives, list and for member profiles for researchers and students, bibliographies and pages describing the various research projects grouped in three axis. To allow easy maintenance of the content, automatic relations between content elements, and promotion of content on various pages, an open source content management system called TYPO3 has been used. Two custom content classes were created for the members and the students, thus allowing to automatically build various lists and profile pages. The already existing news and bibliographic content classes have been customized to fit the Center's needs. Bibliographical data are put in a database to allow filtering by author, publication type and year. This project innovates by linking automatically the reseachers profiles and the projects pages through the use of tagging.

In 2017, a site redesign was deployed. A new responsive grid has been applied, the home page was reconfigured, but most importantly, content and extensions were migrated to a more recent version of TYPO3 (TYPO3 7.6). Good content has a value and migrating it automatically instead of starting from scratch is key: we can help our clients solving this difficult problem.
