Narragansett Bay Quilters’ Association,
In 2013, NBQA approached me about converting their decade-old HTML site into a new, smarter environment. Part of the challenge was that they had built up a huge wealth of resources over the years – all of which needed to be brought over.
- Upgrade the site to be dynamic (use a database)
- Provide all membership documents and other materials online
- Make the website work on phones, tablets, and any device anyone wants to use
- Give volunteers and admins the ability to contribute and approve content for the site, anytime
- Add a calendar to easily list all events, meetings
- Work with the project leader to organize all content into logical areas
In one word (yes, again)… WORDPRESS!
WordPress used to be only a blogging tool. Not anymore!
Making the actual website was only half the battle – gathering, categorizing and entering all the content was the bulk of the project.
Using custom tweaks to a flexible WordPress template, we were able to create a secure, modern tool that serves as an informational tool for the public and members alike.
