Ehlers-Danlos are a UK charity raising money, awareness and providing information and support to people with the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. </p> <p>They were half way through a website re-development project when they asked me to take it over. Most of the design had been done, but there was still alot of development left to do as well as more design updates. </p> <p>Ehlers-Danlos have a large website, with many pages and services including:</p> <ul><li>General information pages</li> <li>News</li> <li>Events</li> <li>An online membership service.</li> <li>Online shop (E-commerce)</li> <li>Messageboard with over 1000 members</li> </ul><p>Their website uses the Joomla content management system, although their messageboard uses phpBB. </p> <p>This was a fairly large project with specific customisation of Joomla required for their online membership section, and their shop also needed a lot of development. </p> <p>They have now successfully launched their new website and I continue to provide them with regular support and development as needed.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-website field--type-link field--label-hidden field--item"><a href="http://www.ehlers-danlos.org/">View Website</a></div> <div class="field field--name-field-date field--type-datetime field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Date</div> <div class="field--item">September 2013</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-client field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Client</div> <div class="field--item">Ehlers Danlos UK</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Tags</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://benmango.co.uk/tags/joomla" hreflang="en">Joomla</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://benmango.co.uk/tags/cms" hreflang="en">CMS</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://benmango.co.uk/tags/membership-website" hreflang="en">Membership Website</a></div> </div> </div> Fri, 14 Jul 2017 12:55:45 +0000 ben 50 at https://benmango.co.uk DeafPlus Website https://benmango.co.uk/website-design/deafplus-website <span>DeafPlus Website</span> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <img src="https://benmango.co.uk/sites/default/files/styles/large/public/deafplus.jpg?itok=lllsuwbX" width="420" height="318" alt="DeafPlus Website" title="DeafPlus Website" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /></div> <span><span lang="" about="https://benmango.co.uk/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" xml:lang="">ben</span></span> <span>Fri, 07/14/2017 - 13:53</span> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>DeafPlus asked me to upgrade their existing website.  They wanted to implement a new design and add various functionality and features to the website.

They initially had their website designed by another company who had designed the website using the Joomla content management system. I have since taken over the support and development of the site.</p> <p>Christians Abroad initially asked me to make several additions and upgrades to the site. This involved changing the whole structure of the website as well as updating the layout for the homepage and other pages. On the homepage they wanted a layout where people would be able to easily find information on the kind of opportunity they were looking for. I was able to do this by having different, clearly marked sections with a photo for each section.</p> <p>As their website uses the Joomla content management system it allows them to easily update and add new content. They can add volunteer positions, news items and other updates to the site.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-website field--type-link field--label-hidden field--item"><a href="http://www.cabroad.org.uk/">View Website</a></div> <div class="field field--name-field-date field--type-datetime field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Date</div> <div class="field--item">March 2011</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-client field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Client</div> <div class="field--item">Christians Abroad</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Tags</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://benmango.co.uk/tags/joomla" hreflang="en">Joomla</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://benmango.co.uk/tags/cms" hreflang="en">CMS</a></div> </div> </div> Fri, 14 Jul 2017 12:36:27 +0000 ben 38 at https://benmango.co.uk Family Rights Group Website https://benmango.co.uk/website-design/family-rights-group-website <span>Family Rights Group Website</span> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <img src="https://benmango.co.uk/sites/default/files/styles/large/public/frg.png?itok=kuEYVZPw" width="480" height="352" alt="Family Rights Group Website" title="Family Rights Group Website" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /></div> <span><span lang="" about="https://benmango.co.uk/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" xml:lang="">ben</span></span> <span>Fri, 07/14/2017 - 13:25</span> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Family Rights Group asked me to help them to design a new website.
