|Development Tools & Environments||PHP5+,Wordpress, AJAX, Java Script, HTML5, CSS3 etc.|
|Database||MYSQL Database Server|
A completely customized approach was adopted by our WordPress developers to customize the plugin to meet the client requirements of online community room booking management. Our developers had to invest their time and dig deep into their WordPress knowledge in order to understand the functionality in the existing system and then go for customizing the plugin which was already there in order to implement the client’s requirements. They well planned the approach and the tools or technologies to implement for the creation of drop downs and time slots for interval based room booking. The time slots of half hour were maintained while the plugin was customized so that the user can manage the community room bookings by order too.
This project is basically built on the top of WordPress architecture. PHP5, WordPress and Linux Server remain the core technologies on which the basis website of the client is based upon. However, for customization of WordPress plugin as per client’s needs, the Ajax technology was implemented by our developers in order to set up the drop downs with start and end time intervals for room booking.
The highlight of this project is the customization of plugin such that users can book the rooms according to the fixed time slots with fixed interval in between them. Our developers were successfully able to understand the existing functionality of the website and customize the already existing plugin according to client’s needs. Ajax technology was used judiciously in order to create the start and end time drop downs. The client’s requirements were satisfied to the best using the latest technology and within the promised timelines.
