Kris Balch, President of VST, reached out to Goldlilys Media to inquire how to make their existing website easier to manage.
Custom Module Development
"All thought is a feat of association; having what’s in front of you bring up something in your mind that you almost didn’t know you knew." – Robert Frost
Every business began as an idea that grew to multiple ideas. The more the founder learns from experiences, the more he/she starts to question whether the reasons for the starting idea and goals are still relevant now. Changes are expected to happen for growing businesses.
To keep up with the latest web trends, Goldlilys Media updated the entire static HTML site to a fully functional website with a gorgeous design that matches the organization's theme and ideals. Goldlilys Media interviewed the staff of Women's Museum of California to gather enough information about their organization to translate to the website medium. Made it possible so that adding contents to the website won't need any programming knowledge, but with only a few selections from forms using Drupal CMS allows the display of sections in any way imaginable.
Build out the back-end with Drupal and creation of a custom module to make AJAX updates directly to forms instead of going to another page. The planner also contains the ability to send out reminders through email or SMS messages using Tropo. The reminder depends on certain conditions the user chooses on their profile. Besides coding the back-end, also themed the front-end user interface with jQuery library for interactivity and CSS.
Added contents to both the Drupal and Magento side of the site. Fixed bugs and added extra features that the clients wanted. Such as integrating Commission Junction to checkout pages of Magento cart by creating a php script.
Sephra sells chocolate fountains, ingredients and other decor for parties, events and special occasions.
Added SDHR scholarships functionality using ubercart, donations thermometer and pay per node modules. Created custom feature to make the modules seamlessly work together.
SDHR is a networking site mainly for business professionals and job seekers.
