Website design, Databases, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Social Media integration. If you're looking for a dynamic web site I recommend Joomla. It's a user friendly Content Management System that can be customized to any project from a small portfolio to an advanced e-commerce site.
The new version of Famous Trials website is built on Joomla Open Source Management System. It provides a cleaner design and updated features to the same great historical and educational material. Famous Trials website, created by maintained by Law Professor Doug Linder since 1995, provides access to original trial accounts and additional historical material to more than 75 trials.
Eshiplaw.org was originally hosted and managed by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation as part of the Entrepreneurship.org platform which provides access to resources for all aspects of starting and growing a business. I was hired to transfer the Eshiplaw.org section of the Entrepreneurship.org website to a new and independent platform to be managed by the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Law. The new Eshiplaw.org website was built using Joomla Content Management System and third-party plugins to manage membership, news letters, and the calendar of events. The new website is mobile friendly and provides users with greater capabilities to manage their information, subscriptions, and authored content.
The new UMKC School of Law website became available to the public in January 2014. I started working on this project on September 2013 along with the Communication Director and two student assistants.
The new website was built on a WordPress platform and a customized template from Rockettheme. It runs several additional plugins and is also linked to other third party services.
The new website came as a replacement of the old one which was a collection of hundreds of static HTML pages that have grown tremendously over the years which made the navigation harder for anyone looking for any information about the School of Law.
In 2014 I helped a Dallas-based web agency migrate two of their client’s web portals (MMHCA and NJCA) from Joomla version 1.5 to 3.1.1
The migration from Joomla! 1.5 to 3.x is a major migration. Although there are few extensions that can help with migrating some type of the content, there is no simple way to migrate the installation and the structure due to the many changes in features and database tables between these two versions. In addition many if the extensions that have been used with the 1.5 version have been discontinued and we needed to find an alternative solution. The migration started by installing a fresh version of Joomla 3.1 then migrating the content manually.
