This site is the second generation we have built. This is one of my favorite sites, it is a news and sports website devoted to covering High School Sports in NJ. It has a dedicated team who came out of the newspaper industry and this is their first venture into Internet Publishing.

The site design came together quickly, the choice of colors and design was left largely to me and the client Sandy liked what we did. To be fair it had to be the colors it was and because of the great photography by Karen, pictures needed to figure strongly in the design.

It has the full news article layout with many different promotional panels. Take a look at the front page and the variety of navigation aids that help a visitor find what they need. Also, the attention to detail in the various icons that promote the sports.

The site is primarily funded by contributions and advertising which is why some space has been reserved for the banner, promotional and text adverts. These work well and are now totally supported by the soar-nj.com team. The same team also administer all the content, photography and videos. They have become so confident that as webmaster I have little to do except be there for occasional problems.

The design did have some challenges, because of all the sports and collages who play them, we needed some way of linking both players, sports and institutions. We did this by creating tags for the various categories. So now by searching on a specific player, school or sport it is possible to get all the relevant articles.

To protect the copyright of the photographs, we have implemented a bar on using the conventional copy and paste. This displays a warning message if anybody tries to copy an image.

This is the second site we have built for them, it went live on 7/30/16 replacing an earlier Joomla site built back in 2011
