PW perfect for site with complicated online directory
Posted 19 November 2011 - 09:28 AM
Also using the www.getskeleton.com framework to make the site look good across phones, tablets and large and small monitors. In fact, this site was designed first and foremost for mobile viewing, as many potential clients are more likely to discover this building by walking or driving by. (If you are viewing this site on a computer you can resize your screen to see it adjust to fit the window.) It was much easier to integrate this framework in Processwire than as a Wordpress theme. Also, Processwire was much better suited for the online directory than Wordpress was. I have all of the tenants as children under the Directory page, and although they don't show, thery are there, and can be developed into an expanded detail page if needed in the future.
Used Ryan's CSV plugin to pump the pages in...Very nice and a HUGE saving of time.
Also the community is awesome. When I got stuck on my PHP coding of the directory page, several senior members had posted various solutions for me.
Much thanks to Soma for rewriting my code (See: http://processwire.c...opic,672.0.html)
I think Processwire is the perfect solution for sites with staff directories or any other tabular data where you don't want your client to break the layout in a WYSIWYG edit window, which is very difficult to do in Wordpress. I have found some more advanced themes that make a good attempt, but the required shortcodes and backend edit-windows tend to overwhelm clients. (I have not totally ditched Wordpress for blog-centric sites.)

Always nice to see different examples of Skeleton sites, too. Thanks for sharing.
