Easy updating online with Content Management System (CMS) using Joomla. Debweb Custom Responsive Theme/Template developed exclusively for my Client.
Debweb sponsored Ironfest from 2004 to 2015 (11 years), providing Web Hosting, Web Design, and Domain Name Registration and Server Administration at no cost to the festival.
In 2013 we developed an Online Ticketing System, enabling e-Tickets to be scanned at the Entrance, using smart phones and tablets.
The advantage of having your own e-Ticket system, is that you receive your funds at the time of the Ticket Sale, and do not have to pay high commissions to third party ticket processing websites (a potential saving of 1000s of dollars).
It also helps to prevent fraudulant duplication of Tickets, as each barcode is unique and can only be used once.
The only requirement is that there is easy access to a power supply at scanning points (to keep smartphones and tablets charged).
Visible data (live updates) can be viewed remotely from anywhere with a PC, or from the Ticket Office PC, as each ticket is scanned, from various entry points at the Festival.
In 2015, I developed a WordPress Theme for Ironfest Blog to match the existing joomla website template. We also imported all the content from Joomla into WordPress saving valuable time and saving SEO links.
