Complete rebuild to get rid of Wordpress...
« on: March 22, 2021, 04:45:07 PM »
This is a website for a charity-foundation, supporting an orthopedagogic centre for children with multiple disabilities. The centre is called "De Vijfhoek", hence the name of the foundation: "Friends of De Vijfhoek".

The old site was build in Wordpress and proved to be a pain in the a** when it came to editing content. Everything is done by volunteers, and it's not a site that has to change every week so maintainance had to be less complex.
And "less complex" is not part of the vocabulary of Wordpress, as we all know.

Well, "cue WebsiteBaker!". A total rebuild, based on WebsiteBaker 2.12, with 8 different instances of OneForAll, a few great scripts by Ruud / Dev4Me, FontAwesome integration and a bunch of supporting javascripts.
Every backend is altered so the editors will not be bothered by functions and information they can't use anyway.

Best part: the client mentioned that they were very happy about the speed of the new site, compared to the old one

Hi, looks nice. Good job.  (Y)
I like the video page, without loading many videos but display them in the lightbox.
Seems in the template is a bx_loader.gif not found.
Very colored, i like the page activiteiten.
