MinnPost

Drupal Version: 
This website looks great on mobile devices!
Why does this website deserve to win?: 

MinnPost is a nonprofit, nonpartisan enterprise that provides high-quality news and analysis based on reporting by experienced professional journalists. The site contains extensive video, audio, mapping and data visualization features. It has a very active user community with frequent commentary and discussion. We imported all this rich content from their previous site—a site that literally changed from minute-to-minute. 

One other noteworthy feature is the site’s Responsive Design. The site’s layout adjusts to fit the size of the device being used to view the site. The end result is a site that feels natural and enjoyable to use on a wide variety of devices, including smartphones and iPads, without creating additional administrative overhead for MinnPost staff.

How It Was Done (optional): 

We used a variety of well-established modules and techniques to build the site, from standards like CCK and Views to using Migrate to map and migreate the tens-of-thousands nodes, comments and users from the previous site. The site is based on OpenPublish for Drupal 6 and uses the Pressflow distribution for extra perfomance.
