DefendYourDollars.org encompasses a great deal of content from bad mortgages to shady credit card practices. Because of the sheer size of this project, hierarchy of content was very important. A system of categories and sub-categories was built in WordPress to support the content. Archived items aren’t visible, but you can toggle their display with the click of a button. The website is configured to give our Admin users more control over display, with widget areas on every page so they may add or change sidebars, header and footer in addition to what you might expect to be editable. Each topic page is customizable and distinct in this way.
To the avid reader, the site offers a wealth of background information. For people on the go, there is video, tips and blog posts. Video content is viewed through a customized YouTube player. Users have the ability to voice their complaints to Congress and regulatory bodies through Convio-powered tools. They may share their story or read hundreds of stories that have been shared already. Stories are housed in a database that was built by another member of our team.Client: Consumers Union
