What is special about it

This site is great example of using Mootools Javascript along with TYPOlight's photo-thumbnailing and file-management capabilities to create an easy-to-manage photo showcase. We use a variety of Mootools scripts, such as SmoothGallery and ToolTips, to create a simple photo-centric layout. TYPOlight's auto-generation and caching of thumbnails makes it easy to create an maintain an extensive photo library for PSD's projects.

Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders are nationally recognized for thoughtful architectural design and quality construction throughout Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, and southeastern New England. Offering an innovative single source for new construction, remodeling, and renovation projects, their firm provides fully integrated services for select residential, commercial, and institutional clients. The website serves as both a search engine optimized marketing tool as well as a photographic showcase for their work.

Extensions used

This site focuses on using a custom extension based off of the core Gallery Element, combined with a variation on Jon Design's SmoothGallery script plus Mootools Tooltips. We also implement some scripts such as Highslide JS for inline content popups. The TYPOlight framework allows us to easily implement these scripts as configurable content-elements, so that any number of custom options for each script can be easily editable as fields in the admin section, giving the client ultimate flexibility in how each gallery displays.
