Rick Hurst Web Developer in Bristol, UK


European Law Firm

The European Law Firm website is a platform for a network of commercially orientated law firms across Europe. The site also has a members extranet where members can communicate and share documents and other information via a secure login. The public website and extranet are based on a bespoke Content Management System (CMS) written in php and MySQL.

I was asked to repurpose an existing database and CMS to create a new website and CMS. I enlisted the design skills of Fanatic Design to create the visual design of both the public facing website and client extranet and created these as XHTML and CSS templates. I then refined and extended the existing CMS to add the new functionality required by the project. Most of the information on the website is maintained by members of the network and the site Administrator, through the web using simple forms. Some of the content on the site is set up to use Macromedia Contribute templates.
