This client provides innovative solutions to a range of engineering problems. The challenge for us was to get all the images we needed to give a good representation of their work. To achieve this we partnered with Jon Burke Digital Video,
A critical part of this site was for the Coast Lines team to be able to easily add new stories and information. We used WordPress for back-end content management with various plugins to get the effects they wanted.
One effect that was important to them was the ability to schedule content to appear and disappear from the site based on date and time. This means a considerable amount of work can be planned ahead of time.
“Regrettably, we joined the queue with those who had an unfortunate experience with someone who was going to deliver the world with a new website. The cost said we should have got the world. Of course, it didn’t work out, and someone recommended that we start from scratch again with Drew at Nile Street Media. Something was terribly wrong here; he communicated in simple terms; and used phrases like ‘this may be more economical for you’ and ‘may I suggest…’ There had to be a catch. Not so; the final product was brilliant. Drew delivered what our business needed and well within our budget restraints. We have since had people ask us whom we used for our website, and we have been proud to say Drew from Nile Street Media” Ashley & Jenny Porter, Coast Lines magazine
The site has a restricted area that is only available to members and it is designed to incorporate the management of their membership.
“Nile Street Media has been instrumental in the upgrading and development of the SANTFA website. Drew’s willingness to roll up his sleeves and become involved with the project lead him to understand our requirements for data storage at an intricate level and his technical knowledge has allowed us to develop solutions specific to our unique requirements. Additionally the platform he chose, WordPress, is an easy to use program, allowing our staff to update and manage the website when required.” Alexandra Milner-Smyth – Executive Officer SANTFA
In 2012 we rebuilt the look of the site to make it consistent with the other Greens sites around Australia. If we were to start from scratch on this site today we would use WordPress for back-end content management, but in this case we saved significant funds by using the existing back-end whilst completely revamping the look and significantly improving the social media integration.
“Nile Street Multimedia has been looking after all of my website needs since they created my site in 2006. As an MP, my website is a vital part of my communication with the community. That’s why it’s important for me to know that I can rely on them to understand what I need from my website, and to respond promptly to my changing needs and to ever evolving technologies.” Mark Parnell MLC.
This site now has much more Social Media integration namely:
- The use of Facebook and Twitter like buttons
- The Facebook like widget
- We link to the feed from Facebook to show the latest posts
