Client DetailsThe Islamic Society of Cumberland site was built to accomadate the growing Muslim community in Cumberland Maryland. After purchasing a lot of land with the hopes of building the first Masjid (Mosque) in Cumberland, the community realized it's need for a website. View project
The site was designed with responsiveness in mind, as most of the traffic would be from mobile devices. For this reason every page, app, and plugin are guaranteed to work on nearly any device and browser.ions with the administration staff. For instance, after logging in, all an admin has to do to change content is navigate to the page to change, and double click the content s/he wants to change. This will cause an editor window to pop-up and allow instance text, image, and even file changes. The site also employs a "cascading inheritance" meaning if information in the footer isn't specified on a page, the CMS will pull information from the last page to use, this allows the admins to optimize their time using the site.
This site also uses a component that consumes an XML feed. The "Home Page" has a small content box on the right with the heading "Prayer Times." This component actually makes an AJAX call the Islamic Finder and pulls in an XML feed. From this feed the site builds the component shown and displays it.
Lastly, the Islamic Society of Cumberland requested a blog and announcements application that would allow the community to post different information about current events. The announcements application was built from scratch to allow maximum customization and simplicity for the end-users. Notably the announcements application provides a powerful publishing system that allows users to specify start and end dates for announcement publishing which allows users to control when an announcement will appear or disappear, link related articles together for quick browsing, users a robust feature-rich text editor to let articles stand out, and a simple elegant feature system to make sure important articles are noticed.
