InterMedia - Web Design and Development - Kitchener/Waterloo Area
InterMedia is the freelance business of Liam McDermott and his wife Megan. Previously based in Salisbury, England; InterMedia has moved to Elmira (near Kitchener/Waterloo), Canada.
The chaps at InterMedia are good at: Web Design, Web Development (using LAMP) and are particularly enamoured with Drupal, which is a stunningly versatile Content Management System (CMS). We can make Drupal do—almost—anything the customer needs, and since Drupal is Free software all the boring work is finished, leaving us to customise a solution for you: the customer.
Don't worry if the technical jargon doesn't mean much, we realise customers have better things to do than understand the ins and outs of Web Development. That's one of the many reasons people hire us. Have a look at our portfolio (by clicking on the images in the sidebar) to see the others.
Aside from normal Web design and development InterMedia specializes in every aspect of Drupal forums, read on for more information on our Drupal forum services.
Drupal Forum Services
InterMedia can take the default, plain—but very customizable—Drupal forums and add all the bells and whistles your users expect. We can help with new sites, building forums onto existing sites or converting from other popular forum software to Drupal (vBulletin or phpBB, for example).
The Webmaster Forums
The Webmaster Forums is one of the oldest forums of its kind on the Web. Started in 1998 and bought by InterMedia in 2005 the forums that were once neglected were converted to Drupal and are now seeing an upturn in activity and quality. InterMedia is achieving its goal of returning the forums to their former glory, making The Webmaster Forums the best place to get help with Webmastering, Web Design and Development.
The Webmaster Forums is powered by Drupal, GNU/Linux, Apache, PHP and MySQL on InterMedia’s dedicated server.
Eat3D specializes in high quality training videos for 3D artists. These are sold through a Drupal-powered shopping cart site. Prior to work done by InterMedia, a vBulletin forum was bolted on to the shopping cart. This worked, but the forum lacked integration with their shopping cart: customers were unable to see their purchases when surfing the forum and there was no way to mail forum users from inside Drupal. Eat3D quickly reached the limits of their forum software.
‘I won’t miss vBulletin much.’
First InterMedia imported the vBulletin database to the Drupal shopping cart, using our own vBulletin to Drupal module. Then expanded the Eat3D Drupal installation with new modules and theme authoring to include forums, member profiles, private messages, friends and comment walls.
Now Eat3D have tight integration between their forums and the rest of the site, their users are happy, the theme is in one place instead of being spread across two software packages, even the forum thread URL’s are prettier (and contain keywords search engines understand).
Naturally, since we made their forums rock, Eat3D will be using InterMedia in the future too.
aPaddedCell is an articles site, created by InterMedia, that serves as a companion to The Webmaster Forums. Content, tutorials, reviews etc. are written on this site while users feedback, comments and requests for help are directed to The Webmaster Forums.
Like The Webmaster Forums the target market for aPaddedCell is the—often ignored—new Web designer/developer, just starting out on their first few projects. These are people who need direction but are not receiving it: The Webmaster Forums and aPaddedCell are changing that! Naturally both sites need a group of experienced Webmasters to offer guidance, these people are welcome at both sites.
aPaddedCell is powered by Drupal, GNU/Linux, Apache, PHP and MySQL on InterMedia's dedicated server. The Drupal Content Management System (CMS) is used to store, sort and present content.
A beautiful location in Charente Maritime, France. Chez Bardon is a provider of superior quality gites and differs from other similar organisations by providing access for disabled users.
Chez Bardon required an Internet site to direct potential customers for information, it is the hook that has closed many bookings.
YAPC::Europe Foundation Logo
The YAPC::Europe Foundation (YEF) is a non-profit organization which works to promote Perl in Europe primarily through public events. They required a new logo that would represent both Perl and the Foundation. The problem was solved by merging the European stars and the Perl Onion logo together, the onion in negative with European imagery in positive space.
