Latest Project: CampusCentral.org

CampusCentral.org

We are proud to release our latest project, CampusCentral.org. This site is an event and resource guide for Lancaster, PA college students.

We created the concepts, design, and ASP.NET implementation for the project. The site offers the latest events, restaurants, places, transportation, and college information for students. A rich content management system was created, allowing the site administrators to easily update and organized site content.

Content Management Highlights

In-place Editing

The content management system was created as an in-place editing system. The site administrator browses the site as a normal user, but has administrative tools to manage content. This made it easy to understand and provided an instant review of the changes on the live site.

Suggested menu items

All places and events in the system are linked in the database. When adding an event, it is usually difficult to select a place when there are possibly hundreds of choices. We created a simple tool that suggests the place you are looking for as you type the name. It then automatically selects the place and matches it in the system.

Drag and Drop ordering

We utilized a combination of Ajax and Javascript to allow drag and drop ordering of categories, events, and places.

No-refresh Preview

Sometimes content must be previewed before submitting to the live site. In this case we created a simple preview tool that displays the updated content as it would appear on the page, but before the administrator submits the content. The tool displays the content directly from the form fields without refreshing the page.
