This rugby club was looking for a site that would provide information for their members and could potentially contain an intranet for each of their teams so that each team could communicate privately. The best solution for this was a Joomla CMS website with Community Builder integration. They could easily add pictures and news items and also had an event calendar. A responsive design was created using the Gantry framework which also simplified the addition of pages and the creation of new content.
A newsletter function was added that was capable of sending a regular newsletter automatically using the contents that had been added within a time frame. Another function was also added that allowed the content added to the site to be automatically uploaded to facebook and twitter.
Each team, 4 senior and 12 junior, had their own page and this displayed their individual news. A results managment software package was installed allowing each team to record their results and fixtures. Each team also had an intranet which meant that when they logged into the site extra content was added to their pages allowing them to chat, view their teams photos and manage their profiles.
Sadly after just one year the rugby club was offered a free website by the Rugby Football Union so they decided to switch.
