Coding, CMS Integration: Virgil Reality
A fully CMS driven site for MasterCard for the Hong Kong Fashion Week and beyond. Working with Graphic Designer: Fabio D’Aguanno and Online Director: Micah Howard, I integrated the CMS System and developed the website.
The site is based on the Expression Engine CMS (Content Management System) platform. This site was developed so that MasterCard could provide daily updated news content, images and offers for their Hong Kong Fashion Insider Event. The system was easy to use and multiple users were able to manage and update the content daily.
The site had 3 audiences
The site was fully roles based with member management and was easy to update for both the agency and client. The templates for web development were built into the system so it was easy to update the physical skin of the site as well.
A flash based image gallery was integrated into the site as well as AJAX form validation in this case based on Prototype although I prefer to use JQuery. I also integrated a flash based video player with XML playlist functionality. As well as these features I integrated plugins to the CMS to add form capture into the CMS database and a truncation script to limit the number of characters in article summaries so they were all the same length.
