CONNECT is a free online community established by the Christian Education Network (CEN) to provide resources for Christian educators and to facilitate sharing and collaboration.
Joomla Web Design
Our brief was to create a dynamic website with document repository and forum capability to encourage resource sharing and collaboration within the CONNECT community. Content is restricted to those who ‘sign up’ for site membership. This means that only registered members are able to access documents and participate in forum activity.
Webhance created this functionality through the configuration of membership, document repository and forum components within the Joomla content management system. A number of robust elements were added; including membership profile section, automatic subscription to site emails with user capacity to manage their ongoing subscriptions for individual forum posts or categories, internal messaging platform within the CONNECT system, and the ability to search both document and forum sections to locate required content.
Being built on the Joomla platform, the CONNECT team have now effectively taken over the administration of their content and are fully able to manage their website without assistance from Webhance.
The site has been designed to be responsive, which means it renders well across all screen sizes from smart phones all the way up to PC.
