For many companies it is important to keep their web site up-to-date with fresh content. The new material often encourages visitors to return to the site more frequently. New content can come in the form of Blogs, Specials & Sales, Recent News, Press Releases and Social Media Updates.
Creating WordPress Websites
WordPress is one of the leading Content Management Systems on the internet today. Because of its popularity there are extensive collections of themes and plugins that allow WordPress installations to be tailored to fit many needs at a very cost effective solution.
The great thing about WordPress is it allows website owners an easy method to update content without needing to know any programming or HTML. The Admin area is so easy to use even computer novices can update a website with very little training. Below are just a few helpful WordPress Admin tools:
- WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) Editor
Use a text editor with familiar controls and icons similar to Microsoft Word or Popular Email programs to create web pages.
- Media Library
Upload photos, graphics and videos to be easily placed on a web page
- Navigation Menu Management
Add or remove pages from the main menus of the site.
- User Management
Create and modify additional admin accounts to help manage your website.
The impressive default functionality of WordPress can be further extended with a wide range of plugins. A plugin is a third party software designed to work with WordPress. By taking advantage of existing plugins, site owners can add functionality to their site with minimum development costs. For WordPress sites that need specialized functionality that can't be found in existing plugins then Crosby Interactive can write custom applications or plugins to do the job.
Custom MVC Frameworks
Crosby Interactive builds and maintains propriety MVC (Model View Control) Frameworks. This is a fancy way of saying we build our own Content Management Systems. The advantage of a custom built CMS, is that the solution is tailored directly to a client's needs. Built from the ground up with only the required functionality of a client, this is a highly optimized solution suitable for large corporate sites and applications.
USFarmer.com is built on a custom MVC framework that Crosby Interactive maintains. It allows a user to post agricultural classifieds, manage their account, communicate with buyers and review customized reports. The site is optimized for speed utilizing AJAX and server side caching. It also has an aggressive, integrated dynamic search engine optimization strategy that delivers thousands of visitors a day to the site.

The Content Management Systems we implement often come with limitless upgrade possibilites. We often recommend open source solutions such as WordPress, Joomla or Drupal. These solutions are backed by a community of programmers and developers that offer many applications to supplement the core program; such as news letters, visitor databases, RSS feeds, photo galleries, blogs, social media plugins, video players, etc.
