These recent projects are excellent examples of where content management systems provide a way for the owner of their website to update content. All three examples below were designed by Scott Hutton at Twenty20 Graphics and were developed and deployed by Mesuva.
For the redevelopment of Loan Avenue’s website, particular attention was made to the task of managing the numerous documents that are provided and regularly updated on their site. There was also a requirement of an ‘Introducers’ section where only consultants can access protected documents. To provide this functionality, a pre-existing document management plugin was installed into the content management system, saving time and reducing costs.
The site also required specifically programmed appointment and introducer enquiry forms to direct emails to the appropriate consultants.
This website features a dynamic drop down menu that is easily modified by Joomla’s administration. The design of the menu features a gentle change of colour across the items – this is maintained even if Comace add/remove or change the menu items.
Each page also features a small image on the right hand side. These images are also able to be modified within the administration. Another subtle design feature of this site is that the background image changes, creating additional visual interest.
This site is a great example of where a content management system allows a client to regularly update their site with new content. Twilight Caravans are able to add listings of their new and used caravans easily with supporting photographs from within the site’s administration.
By making their website more of an online catalogue, Twilight Caravans make the most of their website by presenting visitors with up-to-date and ultimately useful information about their stock. The regular updates give visitors a reason to return to the site.
