The Concordia Seminary project was a large, content-heavy website that needed to provide administrators with the ability to build out custom pages in the future. We considered the many page builder options available and settled on a combination of Advanced Custom Fields and SiteOrigin widgets. This project also included several custom plugins and integration with Concordia’s 3rd party systems. Additionally, an e-commerce store was built using WooCommerce.
- Site Architecture
- Theme Development
- Plugin Development
- Integrates with staff directory; A custom plugin parses a JSON feed and stores directory information into WordPress. The staff information is updated or removed as needed.
- Integrates with a local calendar feed provided by Concordia; Parses XML or iCal calendar feed, imports into The Events Calendar, and updates or cancels events as needed.
- Custom WooCommerce shipping plugins handle special shipping scenarios.
- Modular admin using custom SiteOrigin widgets allows the client to build pages as needed.
