Websites

CLAS Pages
CLAS Pages is a WordPress network of over 800 sites which consist of personal faculty sites and research projects. User authentication is handled by our institution’s ActiveDirectory. Switching to WordPress was a great move for our organization. Under the old system (plain HTML) we were spending a great deal of time trying to maintain only a few dozen sites. After the conversion we now have most users editing their sites directly.
Charlotte Teachers Institute
CTI is a community outreach organization hosted by our college. Their first website was managed using Joomla which met their technical needs but was too complicated for them to manage content on their own. Their site was converted to WordPress and we use a combination of custom themes and plugins to add the advanced functionality they require.
Goldsboro Elite Martial Arts
GBE is a small martial arts academy. Like many small business they can not afford dedicated technical staff or expensive professional hosting. WordPress allows them to manage content on their own, I only need to provide support if they have a technical problem.
