Using ExpressionEngine, we developed a system that delivers approved show images, text and metadata from networks to their digital partners. The system is automated to pull in data via numerous XML feeds, so that minimal time is spent in the admin by site editors.
Third-party API Integration
Consulting and Maintenance
We look to Masuga Design as our strategic partner for development.
We helped FOX by working with a digital marketing agency to develop a system that delivers approved show images, text and metadata from networks to their digital partners, with minimal time spent in the admin by site editors.
3rd-party API Integration. Nearly all of the entries are created automatically via feeds we import from the various networks, minimizing the amount of time editors need to spend in the system. We created a control panel accessory that clearly shows when the last imports ran, lists the number of items updated, and provides direct links to the raw feeds.
Tracking Downloads. We utilize custom add-ons we developed (Link Vault and Link Vault Zipper) to protect downloadable files and to track all the downloads. We created custom reports, downloadable as CSV files, for the administrators to know which files partners are downloading.
Custom Member Administration and Reporting. We created a customized pending member approval module, that has more detail and a flow that fits the client's workflow better than out-of-the-box member administration.
Security. The whole site is behind a login, and registration is limited to certain approved domains. Following best practices for ExpressionEngine security, the system folder and templates are above webroot.
