WeedConnection.com is your source for medical and recreational cannabis infotainment. It is designed, developed, produced, and published by Russell Rope. Originally developed as a static site with intent of being upgraded to dynamic and database driven, WeedConnection.com launched in 2006 and was CMS integrated by the end of 2007. Weed Connection and its related web properties have been evolving since before public launch and there are serious plans for future development, production, and expansion.
Russell Rope was Online Editor (+basically Online Creative & Technical Director) @ The Campus Press, which was the University Newspaper. After designing, developing, and launching the site, Russell developed a system for the editors to submit content through PHP/HTML forms. It was still a time consuming task to publish submissions to the site. Automating the publishing of content was solved when RRP developed the WC CMS.
Russell Rope was Creative Director for a team of technology, arts, and media students, designed this layout, then collaborated with team members to develop a flash site.
