Portal website

Senior Web Application Developer

A new news information portal website is published with a fresh new look.

This web application is a web portal designed as a news feed reader / aggregator to bring information from across the web together into one place.

The default theme features the familiar Windows Vista style, which includes full width screen with scrolling content and fixed side bar.

The default feed list includs news headlines, entertainment and sport - which can be tailored via a configuration file which can include both local and remote news feeds.

News feeds are cached to reduce data traffic across the internet. Feeds are then transformed into HTML using XSLT and CSS. Should a problem with the feed occur a message is displayed to the user. Should an application error occur, custom error pages are displayed to the user and support staff notified.
