The site was designed as a comprehensive resource for searching all the pubs in Oxford and it took 3 months to complete.
The BC features used include: Web forms, CRM, Secure Zones, Content Holders, Blog, Liquid and multiple Web Apps. The Web Apps combined with Liquid were especially helpful here, as each pub had multitudes of information that needed to be pulled through into different layouts and pages.
“I have been working with BC for 2 years now and I love how the most complex of tasks can be completed with ease. The main advantages I've found with this CMS is how it works perfectly out of the box, but also allows for extended features. The combination of Web Apps and Liquid allowed me to create endless features for my clients and build each site to be completely bespoke around their needs and wants.” (Chris Sawyer, Code to Pixels)
An advice for somebody who just started using BC from the designer of Pubs of Oxford: “I'd advise any new starter to delve into the documentation, which is extremely well detailed and the code snippets make it easy to understand. There are also the forums, that are constantly active with Business Catalyst gurus who are always happy to help and share their knowledge.”
