KnotFriends was a concept created by Tony Bagdon and others. The project spanned several months due to the overall complexity of the project. Numerous PSDs were converted to HTML/CSS and from there the magic began. Instead of using a pre-made CMS such as WordPress we custom coded the site by hand in PHP using Codeigniter as the framework of choice. Codeigniter helped speed up the process of development as well as keep the site loading fast.
We created member reviews, a custom admin area, integrated payment processing as well as shipping label management with Endicia. Lastly a blog was integrated with the entire system using WordPress. The site is a one-of-a-kind and was worth the amount of work it took to make it successful.
