Late June into early July were some good weeks for the interactive side of exUrban, Inc. A bunch of sites on which we’d been working have come online and I’d like to mention one, OpFocus, briefly.
OpFocus is a consulting company that specializes in SalesForce.com implementations, Crystal reports and Excel reporti automation. We delivered a WordPress-based solution that allows Opfocus to easily manage their content and have a blog. We used custom fields to load the picture of the guy looking at the screens and this makes it very easy to update. Each content block on the home page is a separate child page of the homepage so it is easy to update and maintain. We also built a custom, random comment generator widget that appears on sub-pages. This feature is fully styled to fit with the site’s look and feel and is easy to update from within the widget itself.
The benefit of WordPress for our clients, and one of the reasons that we use it frequently, is that it is an open source platform with a passionate and huge development community. As mentioned, the OpFocus site is widget enabled so the client is able to extend the site’s functionality over time and add a plethora of features that would either take much time and/or money to implement on another platform.
