Air Safety And Law is intended to serve as a forum for the legal community to discuss air travel safety and liability issues. The blog is a project of Kreindler & Kreindler, the law firm that handles most of the major aviation accidents. I originally worked on this in late 2007 with my graphics designer friend, David Schiffer, who provided the header image and selected the theme from several sample templates I presented. We put up a demo version on WordPress.com, but not until recently have they decided to bring it live. I moved the content to David’s managed server so that we’d be able to do robust search engine optimization and accommodate some modifications that would not be possible on WordPress.com.
As with another law firm blog I recently built, the Air Safety And Law authors wanted thumbnail versions of their portrait photos to appear with the articles they published. Instead of hacking the template files as I had done with the previous site, however, I formalized the technique and wrote a WordPress filter. Read my recent article on how this works.
