Actually... the Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz/Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation creates a constant stream of interesting information. Especially if you consider the works and the news of all the accompanying museums, archives and institutions.
On the old website this vibrant stream of content could only to be guessed.
This is why cosmoblonde has revised the main introductional area of the site www.preussischer-kulturbesitz.de during the partial relaunch fundamentally.
The new key element is an editorially controllable „Newswall“.
This TYPO3 extension developed by cosmoblonde allows it to include in-house news and events as well as those of the affiliate institutions dynamically and with a consistent design via automated RSS import on a magazine-like surface.
Thus, with all the news and events the foundation as a whole has to offer, a constantly updated stream of information on culture and activity is created.
„The Newswall refreshes the SPK-Website in every aspect, it is a great benefit for us: For the first time we can show on one site what is currently happening at the foundation and its five institutions.“, praises Hermann Parzinger, president of the foundation.
In addition to the current contents, the „Newswall“ offers a place to accommodate some of the more timeless contents like teasers for the new theme dossiers, image galleries or links to essential publications.
The dossier feature is an editorial format which offers an in depth access to current topics of the foundation. The design and the structure is diverse and invites you, together with the quarterly publication of the „SPK Magazin“, to deepen your knowledge on the foundations contents.
You can learn more about the current dossiers „Humboldt Forum“, „Home“ or „Busoni“ here.
We are very happy about the development of this versatile extension whose greatest strength lies in the creation of complex and strong weboffers that are editorially supervised. The „Newswall“ offers a flexible, adaptable grid of magazine-like teaser-elements. Editorial contents and contents from external sources can be added automated or manually.
Thus the editors can set individual priorities, orchestrate the stream of information and automate it partially. To make contents furthermore explorable for the user, we have replaced our previous TYPO3 search with a solr-based full-text search.
