Some Opus Web Sites
These are a selection of sites which have been developed using the Opus engine. If you would like your site listed here (or if it is and you would not like it listed here!) then let us know.
- Milton Village - the web site for the village of Milton, Cambridgeshire. It's updated very regularly, often several times a week and links into several other technologies used by The Hug including InfoStorm.
- www.the-hug.co.uk - our business site. Want a web site built using Opus? We can help.
- the-hug.org - our home pages, this is a good example of the use of a variety of templates on one site, compare and contrast the front page with Paul's and Beth's pages for example.
- Centre for Crime and Justice Studies - this is a complex Opus site, not just the use of templates (one template actually renders all the pages) but also through the use of sections to tune how the pages look. We also developed their previous site, Harm and Society, for them using Opus.
- Milton Country Park - a site about the Park which we created after the success of the Save Milton Country Park campaign (which was another Opus site). These share a common look and again are very different in look to the vanilla Opus templates showing what you can do with templates if you put your mind to it.
- Angioma Alliance UK - a web site for a charity we support. A very simple Opus site.
- Emmaus Cambridge - a local charity offering a home to homeless people in the area. We created this site for them and their staff keep it up to date.
- Ormiston Children & Families Trust -
Ormiston works to promote the well being of children and young people, especially those disadvantaged by their life experiences or circumstances. Their web site was set up by The Hug and is managed by Ormiston staff.
- Make My Vote Count - a campaigning web site for Make Votes Count, a campaign to reform the electoral system for General Elections in the UK. This site is currently on its third incarnation in terms of look with new templates each time. The latest version has templates merging in information both from Opus and from a Moveable Type blog and a phpBB
chat room system. See
this newletter for more about this.
- Bognor Regis - a community web site for the seaside town.
- HARP - Help and Advice for Relatives of Prisoners. This was the first Opus site developed by The Hug under contract. The site won an e-commerce award in a Government competition. It's now been superseded by the Prisoners' Families Helpline site - see below.
- Prisoners' Families Helpline - this site shares an article database with the HARP web site as they have many pages in common, however the creative use of templates, which takes elements from the design of their posters, means that have a rather different look.
- Histon & Impington On-Line - the web site of two villages west of Milton. This site is a long established web site which is in the process of moving over to Opus
while retaining its existing look and feel. This has allowed the webmaster to move the site over
gradually rather than having to do it all in one hit.
- The Penguin Club exists for assisting Amateur Theatrical Societies in Cambridge (UK) in staging their shows and has been in existence for over twenty years. They don't perform themselves, but provide the expertise and help where needed.
- Lydiard Millicent - the web site of a small village and parish in the far North-East corner of Wiltshire trying hard not to become part of Swindon.
