Reminiscent of those at WhiteHouse.gov
A friend of mine asked me if I could create a website for his small construction business. Of course I couldn't refuse, but to make sure I would not be responsible for making all the changes in the future, I decided to use Drupal CMS to create it. I asked him to look around the internet for ideas on what he wanted to show his visitors. One of the things he asked if I could do was make an image gallery like the one at WhiteHouse.gov so he could show images of his work on various projects. "Of course", I said, "Drupal can do anything!"
I thought I would be able to do a quick Google search and find out how it was done. From the results, I discovered that I was not the first person to try to find out. The web was filled with unanswered requests for this information. I was never able to find out exactly how the White House's official website created their header gallery, but luckily Drupal is so flexible that there are often many ways to accomplish the same goal.
