International Interior Design Association
IIDA is an organization supporting and promoting interior design excellence. The Association provides a forum to demonstrate design professionals’ impact on the health, safety and welfare of the public, balancing passion for interior design excellence with strategy for best business practices.
The IIDA website utilizes Thirdwave's two-tiered MasterView Content Management System allowing editors to maintain the pages and content on the site with little HTML or technical knowledge. The CMS also contains a Teaser Library where all teaser content is stored. Editors can place these teasers throughout the site in any location. Editing the content in the library then updates all instances of the teaser.
RICH INTERACTIVE CONTENT
Within the IIDA website, there are two instances of a dynamic mapping technology using Flash and ColdFusion. The Flash map reads data from the content management system and then displays the appropriate information as the user clicks to zoom in on a region. There are also several videos on the site that use a custom Flash video player and a streaming media server.
EVENT MANAGER & CALENDAR
A Flash calendar on the front-end of the site allows users to navigate through events by clicking on a range of dates. Events can also be searched by category, location, chapter and keyword. All event data is managed via a simple form in the MasterView.
