Advanced Custom Fields For Easy Editing
Pages such as the homepage and class description pages feature complex layouts that would be difficult for an average user to reproduce without advanced CSS coding.
Behind the scenes, using advanced custom fields, TheeDigital created a friendly user interface where pictures, backgrounds, text, and headlines can be easily updated by anyone with admin privileges.
The pictures will automatically scale, the text will take on the appropriate styling, and of course, it’s all responsive. Design elements shift and stack like magic, allowing the page to look perfect on any device.
No need to hire a programmer to manage the site!
Ultra Sleek Mega Menu
To add even more visual flair to the website, we took IDB’s standard navigation menu and took it to the next level. Also known as a mega menu, regular drop down menus are expanded and upgraded with images, drawing attention to IDB’s current program offerings while making a dramatic artistic statement!
Custom Search With AJAX Filtering
Website visitors have a tendency to be in a rush, so anything that can be done to expedite a visitor’s search for information is a plus.
Their average time on site may only be a few minutes. If website visitors can’t find what they are looking for in time, they’ll bounce before having the chance to become a lead!
TheeDigital created custom post types for IDB’s program offerings that include custom attributes such as program name, topic, career level, and duration.
These attributes are searchable in the custom search feature. Plus, AJAX filtering does not require the page to reload, so the results are filtered instantaneously.
Authorize.net Payments Page and SSL Certificate
IDB’s site features a secure payment page where customers can conveniently pay their invoices online with a credit card. With the Authorize.net payment gateway, IDB can accept Visa and Mastercard payments and have the funds deposited directly into their bank account. Settled transactions can also be imported directly into Quickbooks.
SSL security isn’t only important on payment pages. The entire site is on HTTPS to give users added protection and peace of mind by ensuring communication between client and server is encrypted and authenticated.
There are other benefits of an SSL secured site. Google has previously announced that SSL security is a positive ranking signal. In addition, Google’s Chrome browser features different visual indicators if a site is secure or not. A green padlock symbol appears in the address bar of a secure site, and on an unsecured site, “not secure” warnings will show on certain form fields.
