Clever Parents ( chose Portland Portals ( to create their Metadot intranet extranet portal skin design.

Clever Parents is a website for smart, successful parents. The site provides content, blogs, discussion forums, and interviews about parenting, children, fitness, style, work and other lifestyle topics.

Portland Portals developed initial design mock-ups based on their existing content website, including designing an exclusive rotating content Metadot gizmo for their home page, and integrating the Metadot skin to conform to their content management processes.

Portland Portals allows small and medium size organizations to benefit from the collaboration tools used by large corporations and governments without the usual large investment required for similar solutions. Based on the Metadot Portal Server, an open source intranet extranet solution, the Portland Portals Hosted Solution products are perfect for small and medium sized companies wishing to share information across the Internet with several types of groups.

“The Clever Parents skin was developed using CSS and implementing changes to the Metadot template system. We integrated our design using the exiting website’s content, allowing us to integrate the skin and meld it into their existing content management procedures and placement” said Scott Hucke, President of Portland Portals. “We also developed an exclusive rotating content object gizmo, integrated with Metadot, allowing them to place dynamically changing content by simply adding the gizmo to their page, filling out the content to display, and pressing save”.
