All of us at bdg are very pleased to announce that our very own Andrew Morris has led Wind River to a successful launch of 5.0.4J on their corporate extranet with an extremely slick and highly customized UI. In fact, the UI is so good that if it weren’t for the portal/server.pt in the URL, you seriously wouldn’t know that it’s a Plumtree Portal!
To pull this off, Andrew leveraged bdg’s extensive knowledge of Plumtree UI customization (especially pluggable navigation) in Java along with a boatload of Plumtree Content Server magic. Up until now, I thought SunTrust was the most creative Plumtree 5x deployment in terms of UI tweaking, but this one trumps it. By a lot. If you don’t believe me, take a look for yourself.

The site is indeed quite stylish, however the page weight is quite large at 153KB, not to mention all of the graphics, is this a commercial site? The massive style sheets and JS files seem to slow things down enough to be annoying, we are up against the same stuff…
This looks good. We did quite similar stuff with AIA couple of years ago. Agree with Carolus, its indeed a bit slow. Neverthless extremely slick and very sharp.
Was AIA a Plumtree deployment? I’d love to see what you did. Do you have a link or a screenshot?
