** Note that for 2010 we are changing our meeting day to Wednesdays. **

The January, 2010 meetup will be about implementing interstitial web pages in Plone.

Interstitial web pages are web pages that display prior to anticipated content. Common usages are:

* Agreement to a Website's Terms of Service
* Disclaimers
* Advertisements or Special Offers or Information
* Capturing User Information

In addition, website login pages and introductory pages which precede and explain subsequent content are other suitable uses for interstitial web pages.

At the January, 2010 PloneNYC meetup, Eric V. Smith and J. Robert Burgoyne will explain the path we chose for implementing interstitial pages in Plone using jquery. jquery is the de facto javascript library for AJAX applications and according to Eric Smith: "I think it's worth spending a few hours with it [jquery]."

For a terrific example of an interstitial web page that uses jquery, see this website: (

We plan to host the meeting in our office in the Graybar Building and we will also attempt to deliver the presentation online via WebEx, for those who cannot attend but would still like to learn the information. The technical details of how to enjoy the presentation online will follow.

Please RSVP now instead of waiting until just before the meeting - thanks.
