Project Introduction:

The Project was to develop an entertainment online site focused on displaying all major events in the Middle Eastern, Persian and Arab American communities across the major cities in the USA. The site should provide the following services

Optimal Online Banner Placement
2. Massive Email Distribution
3. Social Networking Options
4. Logo & Banner Design

Project Assignment Highlights:

To redo the site in Codeigniter.
Facebook automatic log-in into “Photos” section.
Track all leads.
To provide instructions on changing banners from backend.
To put a .htaccess folder protection on wp-admin folder.

Challenges:

In the admin dashboard of Facebook, section “Facebook events” was not showing options to save and post onto the website.
Some issue in API credential as well as in API parameter.
Facebook connection to the website was not working properly.

Technology Used:

Codeigniter, PHP, MySQL, HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, JQuery.

Solutions:

Codeigniter is a powerful PHP framework that is based on the Model-View-Controller development pattern. This approach separates application logic from presentation, allowing easy implementation and maintenance with minimal scripting in web pages. We have implemented the website that is stable, secure, and easy to manage while also having a wide reach, having hottest and newest nightlife and entertainment focused on displaying all major events in the Middle Eastern, Persian and Arab American communities across the major cities in the USA. The problem that the client was getting regarding the facebook connection to the website was solved using different customized coding. The issue with API credential was solved by adding correct app_id and app_secret_key and also upgraded API functions with latest version. The whole site was developed to increase the traffic and to make site popular.

Result:

The final result was a website that is a weekly entertainment guide including the best restaurant and lounge directories with featured event photos and memoirs of the local trendsetters. With this website we hoped to increase user engagement and encourage a deeper journey through the site — and hoped to inspire more people to visit site itself as well.
