What this Site is Not
- This is not an official site of the Unitarian Universalist Association, nor are the opinions expressed endorsed by any official UU organization. Heck, read enough blogs and you will even find contradicting opinions.
- The site is not funded. There is no grant or organization that helps to pay the hosting fees for the site. If you are interested in helping contribute to keep the site running please visit the donations page.
About The Technology
If you are interested in the technology here is a rundown of some of the technology behind the site:
- Powered by Yii Framework. — I evaluated a bunch of different frameworks, and this one was a clear winner. For a custom PHP site this is a very strong choice.
- Zurb's Foundation framework — In order to make the site more mobile friendly I built it with a freakishly advanced framework.
- SimplePie — in the latest release not much changed with SimplePie's usage, but then again it has been rock solid for a while, so it doesn't need to.
- Font Awesome a font that lives up to it's name. I always hated designing with image editors and was so happy to find a great way to style pages with images that can be easily scaled and where it was trivial to change the colors.
