Site Networks

See all projects

Sometimes you’ve got a variety of interests or specialties that are too much for a single site. Let us use our expertise with WordPress to build you an integrated network of sites.

There are many benefits to having a network of sites:

  • Single login allows access to all the website dashboards.
  • Information can be moved between sites quickly and easily.
  • Maintenance and updates are all handled from a central location.

For a few of our clients, we’ve created networks where all the sites are overseen by one person, but managed individually by different staff members – each a unique user – with their own speciality or job function.

Don’t be afraid to think big – we can build it and still keep it simple.

Plant Something BC

We built a site with integrated, automated, and fully customized Google maps, allowing people to search for garden centres, landscapers, and nurseries and growers across the province.  Site visitors can search by city name or postal code to find the service nearest to them.  The data is managed across the BCLNA network of sites; all the content is housed in one central location and pulled to where it is needed, making content management easier.

Good Space Plan

We built an online interior design service that allows people to get professional help to design and execute their DIY interior renovations. We worked with Good Space and custom built a collaborative space for client and designer to interact and automated much of the pre-sale work. This complex network of collaborative projects is built upon WordPress and integrated with BuddyPress as a collaborative tool.

Vancouver Academy of Music

The VAM site was designed and built using the WordPress CMS. It features custom fields, multiple custom post types,  secure contact forms, and custom payroll and registration functionality. We provided training and continued support on how to best use the site; as a result, enrollment at VAM has increased 25%.

Italian Cultural Centre

The Italian Cultural Centre (Il Centro) is a community hub for anyone in Vancouver seeking anything from banquet services to Italian classes. The site presents their range of services clearly, using an integrated WordPress multisite. With a unique dashboard for each department within Il Centro, this site’s user interface is optimized for different tasks, from registration and ticketing to news updates. Recent additions to the network include WooCommerce integration and Il Centro can sell tickets to their events without the overhead of a third party reseller with Event Espresso.

Greater Vancouver Interactive Arts Society (GVIAS)

We worked with this arts association (who are loosely affiliated with Burningman) to build a website network. We build a website to manage community membership, art and grant applications, as well as integrated sub-sites for each event throughout the year. We enable online ticket purchases and self-print tickets for attendees and provide event organizers the ability to scan attendees tickets at the door using any smart phone. A very interesting project for a dynamic collective of people.

Landscape British Columbia

The Landscape BC site takes advantage of an Integrated Network by displaying content from the member directory at their parent BCLNA site. A responsive theme that displays smoothly across all displays, the new Landscape BC theme also takes advantage of a custom Planting Calendar which populates with seasonal planting information entered into Custom Fields.
