VI Source

VI Source is a free online newspaper serving the U.S. Virgin Islands. Each of the three main islands — St. John, St. Thomas, and St. Croix — is represented by its own portal that leads to content relevant to its residents. In 2009, Openflows completed development of a website that includes news articles, editorials and blog posts, government data, and events calendars. The site also hosts multimedia content in audio, image, and video galleries.

A key feature of the site is the ability for editors to post each story to one or more of the three editions of this online paper. This flexibility is implemented using the domain module, with a unified sign-on that logs in users simultaneously for all domains used by this multi-site installation regardless of which one they visit first.
