Reyes Construction is website for a construction company based out of the Inland Empire that deals primarily with government and state contracts. The website is targeted towards potential clients that would like to find more information about the company online before making their decision.
Objective or Challenge
I worked on this website as the developer with 2 other people. The website needed to incorporate a content management system that was easy to use and update information. The home page had a flash asset that displayed information about a few projects the company had worked on, and it had sliding panels to hide and display the information about the project you hovered over with the mouse. This asset needed to be recreated and be able to be updated. Also a gallery section needed to be created to showcase the company’s projects and be updateable via the CMS. The Silverstripe CMS the client wanted to use, wasn’t so easy to integrate additional functionality to.
Utilizing some creativity, I created additional tabs in the Silverstripe CMS so the client could update the home page slideshow and gallery section from the same area. I created a custom CMS using PHP and MYSQL that I integrated with the Silverstripe backend.
