Our website ( ) needs to continuously adapt to our growing business. The old website was based on Joomla CMS, which despite its strength, was pretty hard to easily customize for our complex needs. We needed a solution to enable us to easily create microsites for our products with distinctive look, embed functionality with PHP snippets etc. After extensive research and prototyping we adopted MODx (review).

The new site design contains microsites for each products with full documentation and support details. Multiple templates were used to render different segments of the site with moderate Javascript use to increase usability and highlight our products. Repetitive segments were encapsulated in re-usable code snippets and html chunks. MODx was well suited for the task and allowed us to complete ahead of schedule.

The contact form is protected against spam using Contact Form Pro, an yet unreleased product and offshoot from Comment Guard Pro software development.

The third release of the site brings together all of our software, service and documentation on a single site.

Joomla and MODx are both open source CMS and Web Application Framework.
