The site and its processes

The Chicago Bible Society is as old as Chicago itself. Their National partner – The American Bible Society – came to us with a project to update their website and give them more power to write blog posts and connect with her community at large. We wanted to highlight the city they love so much and the good work they do day in and day out. We came at the project with a youthful but accessible approach as their target audience could potentially range anywhere from 18 to 24 all the way up to the 45 to 65-year-old demographic. So far the responses been great and we’re really excited about the work we’re doing with Chicago Bible and the work they’re doing with the city of Chicago.

Add-ons and EE special sauce

This might seem like a simple site but there is a good amount of content that the client wanted to be able to update. So we created channels for the About, Bible Online, Blog, Contact, Donate, Home Page, Leadership, Partners, Programs and Videos.

Many of the channels are using the Single Entry add-on as a way of giving them a custom publish page but not allowing them to enter in additional entries.

We also harnessed DevDemon’s Channel Videos for pulling in their video content.

Other add-ons worth mentioning are Backup Pro, Channel Images, FreeForm, Wygwam and Updater. I think we even mixed in a little Stash.
