New England Industry Liaison Group

NEILG, New England Industry Liaison Group, wanted to streamline and simplify their website. I used the Zerif Lite theme as base and created a child theme to add customizations. A quick reorganization of the content helped make the site easier to follow.

One challenge was how to display the massive list of resource links NEILG had accumulated. All the links were moved from individual pages and into the WordPress link manager. Then using the Link Library plugin custom output was created and the final touch was to use some jQuery to animate the opening and closing of the categories.

The other challenge was to get a slider of events on the home page. Using the The Events Calendar plugin, The Events Calendar Shortcode plugin, and the jQuery bxslider slider I created an animated slider based on the HTML UL element output by The Events Calendar.
