The Brief

ADSO needed a new WordPress website that allowed them to communicate with their members easily and effectively. The new site had to:

  • Provide a visually dynamic homepage with scrolling and fading news items
  • Create online surveys for members with built-in analysis
  • Allow for online booking and membership renewals
  • Have a granulated permissions systems with separate and secure areas

The Result

Our designers quickly produced UX wireframes that incorporated carousels, banners, and integrated social media feeds in order to give the site a contemporary look and feel. Our developers implemented a Role Based Access Control system for users, as well as an auto-publishing tool for pushing content to social media. ADSO’s deprecated forum module was replaced with an up-to-date one, and a migration pathway created so that all their past forum posts were still accessible.

Since delivery we have been providing ongoing support and maintenance, including the updating of the WordPress core to the latest version released in order to maintain the site’s security.
