We describe the operation of, the website provided for GridPP and its precursor, UK HEP Grid, since 2000, and explain the operational procedures of the service and the various collaborative tools and components that were adapted or developed for use on the site. We pay particular attention to the security issues surrounding such a prominent site, and how the GridSite systems was developed in response to the needs of the site's users to allow delegation of management rights to members of particular subgroups within the collaboration. We explain how third party content generation systems have been incorporated into the site's security model, both purely interactive systems such as MediaWiki, and semi-automated tools such as RSS feeds and the Subversion version management system. Finally, we offer a brief survey of future developments relevant to portals and collaborative websites, such as OpenID and Shibboleth, and how they can be incorporated into the wider security framework of High Energy Phyics grids.
