This web app was my first introduction to content management systems. At the time it was very robust with many addon options and a very responsive user community.
Many clients choose to use this cms because "oh, it's just a small site" and the cms was free. Then the functionality of the site would grow and grow. I had to learn how to exploit almost every aspect of the smarty tags.
Updated: Check out this new design!
Pulling data from CMS Made Simple's Company Directory module I made a super sweet store locator using Google Maps.
I'm really happy with how this site turned out! The contest pages were hand coded and it was nice to see my regular login code pass strict security testing. The image gallery and thumbnail previews come from cmsms.
Between the global site, 5 regional sites (2 of which are bilingual) and user registration this is probably one of the biggest sites I've worked on. According to Google Analytics there were over 200 hits the first day.
