A new custom theme was developed for this educational group membership site using WordPress and the Genesis Framework. The updated site helps them manage their members, their content — including content for the public and content only for members, and their online newsletter. Custom post types were used to organize the different types of content — membership directory, newsletter, members only content, and FAQ page.
The newsletter sections open and collapse, like the FAQ sections, to make navigation between sections easy and mobile-friendly, as many members read the newsletter on their phones. Their online application automatically creates the member listing and the membership directory. When the new member is approved and added, their listing is automatically added to the members-only directory. They are also sent a detailed email about the group and how to login to the member area.
The FAQ and the newsletter sections expand and collapse, and are accessible and mobile-friendly.
