The site and its processes

GSIS are an International school based in Seoul, Korea. We were asked to take on the management of the original EE1 site by another agency who could not dedicate time to their requirements anymore due to losing their last EE1 resource. Shortly after taking over the site, the client had problems with performance of the site due to a number of third party integrations with Flickr and Google Calendar no longer working (deprecated API's). We rebuilt the entire site in EE2 with a new design making it fully responsive and writing a number of custom add-ons to connect and populate the site.

Add-ons and EE special sauce

The Photo Gallery is pulling in images and feeds directly from Flickr with caching and the Events is powered directly from Google Calendar with a custom add-on that connects via the Google Calendar v3 API. The rest of the site is powered with Structure to allow the client to move content around the site using the drag/drop inteface.
