Cellular and Molecular Medicine Program – Johns Hopkins University
I was contracted to develop this site through the Wilbanks Consulting Group when they were approached by the CMM program about creating a new website for them. Their original site had been destroyed through a server update and existed as a very simplistic mediawiki site at the time. They wanted a modern look that would be easy to self-manage and keep updated on the WordPress platform.
To assist in keeping the site updated easily I created custom individual profile templates and custom page templates to make keeping faculty, staff, and students simple. Whenever a new individual is added to the site, it is automatically added to the appropriate directory pages based on which category is relevant to it (i.e. current student vs. alumni, research area, etc), eliminating the need to update multiple pages whenever new people enter or leave the department. Other site features include:
- mobile responsive
- large homepage slider
- custom contact page with dynamic contact info
- sort faculty by research area and primary and secondary appointments
- sort students by class year as well as current and alumni status
