Portal

Senior Web Application Developer

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

Rendall Technology is a technology company providing web based software solutions. The website is both an advertising and information tool for existing and potential clients.

The new release features a fresh new look with a cool colour scheme, integrated into a responsive web design which looks and performs well on desktop, tablet and mobile devices. Navigation is achieved with a simple clear menu system and category listing, site map, site search on every page and breadcrumb trial indicating the page’s position within the site hierarchy.

Functionality includes cookie agreement notification, social network integration (share, follow, RSS feed), change locale for regional variations, accessibility options (access keys etc.), email functionality, and sign in (with password recovery) for the content management system. Search engine listings can be optimised with site verification, site map, custom URLs, semantics and rich snippets. Configurable page redirects are provided for pages that have moved. The site incorporates custom error handling, including error pages, logging and email reporting.

Behind the scenes the site has a new secure custom built content management system. This allows site authors to manage site settings, pages (hierarchy, content, search engine, accessibility, publish etc.) account details (profile, security information etc.). It also allows administrators to manage page templates, users and user roles.

The website has been built with Visual Studio 2012 using ASP.Net 4.5 with VB.Net and conforms to HTML5, CSS3, RSS 2.0 and WAI-A WCAG 1.0.
