JB-Management is one of the sites which I both designed
& developed from scratch. JB-Management wanted
a site which allowed them to promote their services online while having the
flexibility in the site design, both graphically and technically, to adapt
to any future changes such as additional content, new sections to the site
only the JB-Management logo
to work with I managed to come up with a graphical template which was eye catching,
but not too intrusive. One of the first concerns were how to code the navigation
menu. Initially it was designed with only one level navigation however I later
discovered that the navigation would need to be capable of handling a 2-teir
navigation structure. This meant that the graphics template would need to be
adapted on the fly so that the sub level navigation was clearly visible while
still allowing the main navigation to be displayed.
The navigation solution has worked out well. The navigation section of the
site is all dynamically created and any combination of navigation items can
be listed and a section of PHP code sorts out how the graphics should be displayed.
This makes the template scalable to any additional number of navigation options.
The rest of the site is based on the same site core that I use on many of
the sites I've developed. Written in PHP it allows the content of any page
to be edited easily without disturbing the graphic template of the site. This
means that very little HTML knowledge and absolutely no PHP knowledge is required
to update the pages on the site.
Since the site launch there were many updates to the content of the site.
This prooved a pain free task due to the way the site is created. JB-Management had
reported no problems with the site, no silly errors or failing HTML forms.
Everything about the site was designed to be user friendly right down to optimising
the images to ensure the site loads quickly without compromising the overall
look of the site...
Update: The current JB-Management website is not the same website that I created. The website has more recently been made much more modern by another company, however the snapshot image above shows what the website I created looked like..
