Intranet to Bootstrap Theme

Project Description

The request was initialized by Géna Thompson:

The intranet is being used more and more and a few business units was added in the past month. The intranet is still on the Omega theme (developed by eConsultant) since going live in October 2014 on Drupal 7. At the stage when Human Capital (who hugely contributed content to the intranet at that stage) wanted to redo their intranet (about February 2015) the bootstrap theme was not developed yet. The theme that is developed on Bootstrap is much more versatile, mobile-friendly and it’s easy to do page layouts without using tables.

There has been a definite increase in publishing activity on the intranet in the past few months. This prompted us to consider rather doing the work and then switching to the bootstrap theme before huge amounts of further content is created on the current theme.
