CAPE's homepage features a jQuery "photo gallery" that allows the highlighting of multiple stories to be shown in a compact space. It also contains the CAPE's live Twitter feed for simple viewing.
The following slides will show you some of the features I built into the website.
To make the site as successful as possible the first thing I needed to design and implement was a new navigation system. I used the standard navigation bar layer on the top portion of the page just below the header so that people could easy relate to the layout.
Based upon the image to the right, you can see that the navigation bar is divided into six broad categories. Each of these six categories are then designed with drop down menus that store locations to a number of other pages inside the site. Some of the items in the drop downs are connected to more specific pages, giving the feature of an additional pop out menu for some of the items within the drop down menus.
A common problem people have when visiting websites is that they are not able to find what they are looking for. To solve this problem I created a live instant messaging feature for users to use so that they were able to ask questions about the location of certain information or documents or to use for other purposes at their own need. This feature allowed users to receive instant feedback to their questions or comments.
Features built with the chat:
As a training center, CAPE has a large collection of written and video case studies. These case studies each have large amounts of metadata that would make them easier to search for. We wanted the metadata to be visible at all times, so I built the metadata in such a way that when the browser shrinks or scrolls it stays in view.
To the right I have loaded a video to demonstrate how the metadata is consistently in view when scrolling either up or down the page.
This second demonstration video shows how the metadata functions when the width of the browser is shrunken. This places the metadata into the top of the page and keeps it there until the page is restored to the original size.
To the right I have loaded a video to demonstrate how the metadata moves with the page while across the top of the page.

With the increase in smartphone use, I thought it would be best to create a mobile friendly version of this site. I created a mobile version of BobbyAudley.com by using jQuery Mobile. It strips the full site down to the bare necessities and organizes them in simple format.Test it out...

Johnny and Gena's Deli and Café is a restaurant site that allows user to find all the basic information they need. I also was able to integrate their social media into the site. Customers can also order online through this site.
This page uses the Google Maps API to show the location of the restaurant. As you can see, it the page defaults to showing a bubble on the map that will allow customers to get directions to Johnny and Gena's.
The online ordering form was developed using PHP and a MS SQL database. The database holds all the items on the menu and their prices. PHP was used to submit the order to the site as well as sending out a confirmation email.
A special feature built into the site was an Admin page, to allow the owners of the restaurant to turn the online ordering on/off and to set the estimated time for the order to be completed.
