Rival Owners Association

CMS and Website Design and Development for the Rival Owners Association

Thursday, May 18, 2017

We've been working with the Rival Owners Association, developing new features for the website's Content Management System (CMS) and adding new design elements to the Rival Owners Association website.

The Rival Owners Association (ROA) was Founded in 1974 by Peter Brett, the designer of the Rival. The ROA is an Association of past and present owners of Rival yachts, with the aim of promoting friendly contact between owners and crews worldwide. The ROA offers help and encouragement to all Rival owners, whether in their home waters or undertaking long distance cruises, as well as those looking to buy a Rival. The ROA also provides a forum for discussion about alterations to existing boats and advice regarding completion of hulls.

We've worked with the ROA to develop the website's member area and integrated forum; allowing members to subscribe and receive email alerts when new topics are being discussed. The email alerts including all discussion content and images allowing those in areas of poor connectivity to keep up to date when unable to load full content from the website.

We've also worked with the ROA to develop the website's forum user experience. We've integrated a custom combination of CKEditror, Dropzone.js, and Codeignitor, to allow users to easily add images to posts by dragging and dropping. On dragging images into a post the CMS then handles resize, upload, and posting automatically.

Custom Cloud Software updates for the My Cause UK PAAM Volunteer Recruitment and Management App

Tuesday, May 09, 2017

My Cause UK was setup by founder Robin Wilkinson to raise money for UK charities through the recruitment and management of festival volunteers.

My Cause UK volunteers work in a variety of roles including stewarding the stages, traffic management, ticketing and wristbanding, in the bars, programme sales and more at events including Love Saves The Day, Lemonfest, Noisily Festival, Secret Garden Party, Port Eliot Festival, Boomtown Fair, The Downs Bristol, and Tokyo World.

Everyone who volunteers with My Cause UK selects a charity, on the completion of their shifts at the event My Cause UK makes a donation directly to the volunteer's nominated charity. To date My Cause UK volunteers have raised over £15,000 for over 170 charities in the UK including Anthony Nolan, War Child, Shelter, Cancer Research UK, Rethink Mental Illness, and ActionAid UK.

We've worked with My Cause UK to develop a custom URL system for the My Cause UK PAAM system which allows My Cause UK to pass each charity they work with a unique link; each charity can then promote the volunteering opportunity to their supporters directing them to apply using the unique link. On following the link to apply each volunteer's charity is automatically entered into the volunteer's application profile allowing for donations to be tied to the corresponding charity.

We've also worked with My Cause UK to integrate Mailchimp into the My Cause UK PAAM Software App. When a new volunteer now signs up for a My Cause UK PAAM account their name and email address are automatically added to the My Cause UK Mailchimp mailing list.

Web Design for Flints Auctions Scientific Instruments, Photographica and Early Technology Auctioneers

Thursday, April 20, 2017

We've been working closely with the team at Flints Auctions designing a new website for the specialist auctioneers.

Based in London, Flints Auctions offers two fine sales and three general sales each year of scientific instruments, photographica, and early technology.

The website we've designed for Flints Auctions is based on the WordPress Content Management System (CMS), includes a custom designed theme, MetaSlider integration for the homepage carousel, and Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) to allow for the creation of additional content fields on top of the Wordpress CMS. The WordPress CMS allows Flints Auctions to quickly and easily login to the Flints Auctions website to add new items for sale, update images, copy, and add new pages to the website.

We've developed a custom WooCommerce system to power the Flints Auctions' auction catalogue. The custom WooCommerce powered catalogue allows for potential buyers to browse the entire Flints Auctions catalogue, and for Flints Auctions to quickly and easy add and update items for sale within the catalogue. WooCommerce powers over 28% of all online stores, so Flints Auctions is in great company!

The Flints Auctions website offers visitors a Responsive Web Design (RWD) which allows for the website's content to be predictably delivered irrespective of device e.g. desktop browser, notebook, tablet or smartphone.
