Public Magazin - Journal entry website (social Media website)
We started of the new year with a major contract to design a social media website a public magazin where people had the possibility to post in various topic categories within groups and upload picture including media content.
This was a major project and we are happy to have been chosen to undertake such a task which was great and Girlfridayz completed the public magazine in five months which was not without its problems and few snags that we sorted out with the support of other developers Cometchat and Joomlapolis, working in collaboration to fix the issues which developed and come up with a solution. We acquired the programs that we needed to completed the project, created text and developed policies pertain to the website containing user content, privacy and cookies.
This was a good learning curve for Girlfridayz and a new challenge that we have achieved to the satisfaction of our customer. We used a combination of template and custom coding to complete the project, we also design the logo and restructured picture to achieve a new picture.
The website is a large website and has 270 pages composed of a client account, three communities and two privates sub-communities accessible via sign up procedure, a forum, user profile with privacy levels, activity board, 37 pre-selected main categories groups where you could post (picture, broadcast, video, live video and article).
You have the possibility to create a sub-category group within the main category, as an example let say you have the Sport group category which is the main category within the sport category you can create another group let say Athletic and post in the Sport or Athletic group and you have to join the groups if you are not a member of this group to post depending.
When the customers tested his website he was way excited, overwhelmed and posted on his site and created his own account as Easy he was way happy.
This website taught us a lots at Girlfridayz it was so brilliant and made us grow in every areas of our business and solidified our resolves.
