This was a unique project for me. I don’t typically get a lot of church site projects, but this one fell into my lap in a funny way. That is, I was wanting to find a project or two to do as a charity project. Through some unusual channels, this project found me. And, although the project started out as pro-bono, it actually grew into a fairly large project.
This website does a lot of interesting things. Since it is built on WordPress, it can use the built-in blog functionality for news items. Additionally, the site uses advanced features like automatic imports of RSS feeds (for homilies and bulletins) as well as a very powerful events calendar (which integrates with Google calendar, automatically updating events on the site when the calendar is changed). All told, the site ended up being 51 pages of content, and I have to say, was one of the more fun projects I did this year.
