  • Description

    OpenPublic is a Drupal based CMS application aimed at the development of government-type websites. The application inherits core Drupal functionality with added features that include:

    - Customizable Look and Feel: OpenPublic comes standard with two clean themes that can be switched with a single click and it’s back-end theme editor makes customisation easy.

    - Accessibility and 508 Compliance: accessibility is a necessity in public-sector communications and OpenPublic responds with Section 508-compliant designs for both back-end administrators and public users.

    - Intuitive Dashboard: administrators experience stress free content management; easy updates on evolving personnel, plans, and processes; and simple publishing of graphics and visuals.

    The impetus behind the project is summed up in the site’s introductory section:

    “In 2009, the White House chosen Drupal as the open source platform for its web site. If the most powerful voice in our nation chooses to tap into global innovation by using an economical, open source platform called Drupal to manage intensely scrutinized, mission-critical content each day and to effectively encourage feedback from citizens … why wouldn’t you?”
