Developing an Online Instructions Directory

www.quikstarts.com

Client Brief:

The client approached us with a requirement to develop an online directory where he can post instructions that are developed, published and consumed for technical products and services. He wanted to have a simple frontend and a firm admin panel that can manage the whole website.

Our Endeavor:

quikStarts.com has been built to serve a simple purpose, which is to show the users how to use various technical products or services. The site offers quick, simple and well illustrated guides about using various technical products. These are managed under distinguished categories, tags & guides. The content would be managed by admin panel.

We developed a list of features that have helped the website to become firm enough to serve the main motive of the development. The features we have developed have aided in following functionalities:
 
  • We have added a number of categories and subcategories where the instructions are listed. The admin of the site can easily add/edit/delete any of them and modify the contents according to the requisites.
 
  • We have also implemented a searchable tag portion on the right hand side of the web pages. Users can click on any of the tags and all the instruction articles that are been saved using the tag will appear.
 
  • Apart from that the site also carries a search panel. Users can use it to look for instructions on the topic they are searching on.
 
  • In addition to that we have also integrated Aviary API to customize the articles’ images and associate user comments feature with every article posted on the site. We have also worked on the URLs of all the pages of the site (associated with the articles) to make them SEO friendly.
 
  • End users can register with the site and can choose to be updated with the latest instructions about newly added technologies by subscribing to the newsletters.
