FDF’s previous website was limited in functionality and suffered the vulnerability that comes with an open-source platform. A secure site easy to update by multiple users of varying experience was an important objective of the redesign project. Solodev CMS was chosen because of its security and the flexibility of the platform.
Solodev software allows for frequently performed tasks to be easily completed through form fields and file uploads so only basic skills are necessary to manage the site. Custom features include a recipe manager with self-cropping photo capabilities and a news manager with multiple categories. A unique hosting configuration with Amazon Web Services also makes the site more secure and faster loading.
