Mercy is another client of BBG Marketing. BBG has a designer they use for all the layout and pretty stuff. What their designer can’t do well is the PHP and MySQL integration. There’s really not that much on mercyrose.org as far as database stuff, but they have the ability to add stories to the home page, all formatted properly, They also have a calendar and a few other things that are directly PHP/MySQL integrated by me.
Oh, they also have this website they use to let site viewers check drug interactions and procedures that I tied into with a custom A-Z Search that you start on the Mercy website, then forward a properly formed query straight into the other website’s database to get the results. Pretty cool.
Over the years I have also done hundreds of text and code updates. Some redesign work to add elements that weren’t originally included. They also ask me to add buttons here and there, so I have gotten pretty good at taking original Photoshop master files and adding text or buttons or whatever, then replacing what’s on the site with it. The site gets a ton of traffic, so anything you do has to be done correctly, quickly and seamlessly. I guess I do all that because they keep coming back.
Oh, I can’t forget Facebook. I integrated a Facebook Like Box and Wall Feed into the template too. I think it looks pretty good. It’s not quite perfect, but there’s really not much you can do with a Facebook Like Box to make it look better. At least not when I did it. Maybe it’s easier now. I should check into that.
If your site is behind on updates, or you just need something added on, let me know. I can do just about anything. If I can’t do it, I’ll be honest. That’s never happened though. Google is a great resource for learning. 🙂
