In winter of 2009-2010, Asiance Magazine - connecting Asian American Woman to the World - upgraded their site to Drupal 6 and picked up a number of neat new features along the way. The new site includes an expanded Community section divided into 5 creative professions (artists, designers, filmmakers, models and writers), as well as a Usergroups and dediacted Forums. Newly-added features include User Points, Buddy Lists, Polls and Favorites, turning this site into both a blog and a community.
A complex and evolving magazine with a dedicated community site, Asiance Magazine is a good example of a highly customized Drupal theme. In migrating the site from Drupal 4 to Drupal 5, we faced a number of challenges due to lack of support for discontinued modules. Many of the site's features required custom-coding to retain compatibility with legacy data structures. Design and Flash programming by Jondela Design.
