New Website and Design: ICForum.info – As this is the UN’s International Year of Biodiversity, the International Conservation Forum was established by Dr. Keith Martin, Member of Parliament, to enable experts in the environment and conservation to share their ideas on how people can work together to save planet Earth. For the website, we installed WordPress as a Content Management System (CMS) and blogging platform. The default theme was modified to create a unique look for the site. Learn more at ICForum.info… and check back regularly as the website grows, or register and offer your solutions.
Content Management System: WestShoreProjects.com – The West Shore Projects website of Valley View Estates was a static website, so whenever they wanted it updated they had to contact us to make the changes. We took that existing site and applied our CakePHP Content Management System (CMS). It looks exactly the same on the outside, but now pages that require frequent updating — such as news, maps, features, documents, and photo galleries — can be updated by the owners at their leisure, giving them more control over content and a more powerful website. On top of this, all Valley View site URLs are now SEO-friendly. Plans are in progress for an automated listings feed that will allow them to choose and display listings on their site, and a new website design.Visit the site….
