Case Study: InsightCCED.org
Project Type: Web Application Development
The Insight Center for Community Economic Development is a national research, consulting, and legal organization dedicated to building economic health in vulnerable communities.
Insight Center for Community Economic Development (InsightCCED.org) needed a simple to manage system that organizes their content, publications and news in centralized content management system/database. Such a system would allow their large editorial team to create and maintain their own content via a secure administration panel.
Install and customize a CMS system to handle all content and editing.
- CMS Made Simple Core
- PHP/MySQL Database
- Smarty Templates and scripting
- Centralized CSS
- Customized CMS System
- Customized membership system via CMSMS Module
- Created templates and integrated 3rd party design
- Customized modular feature sets within CMS Made Simple
- Secure Admin Panel for editing all content
- Customized blog and displays
- Customized forum using available CMS modules
We began the project by utilizing the CMS Made Simple (content management) core to handle all content related page edits. We then collected all required design related information from a 3rd party designer and created web ready templates for the CMS system and other required templates. We then created several template variations to handle various portions of the site. With several hundred active pages, this site is one of our larger CMS Made Simple clients as far as content goes. We estimate the site at close to 400 pages at time of writing this case study with several being added daily.
