Starr Cancer wanted their existing site to be converted into a Sitefinity site so they could take advantage of the many Sitefinity content management features. They also wanted to make their site responsive so it could be viewed on mobile and tablet devices.
Two of the Sitefinity features that were highlighted with this project are the Sitefinity Module Builder and the Sitefinity Navigation Widget.
Using Sitefinity's Module Builder, the programmers at Inalign were able to expand on the end-users' capabilities. A module was created for each of the pages in which there were multiple lists of information (Awarded Grants, Publications, Visiting Fellows Program, and Archives.) Each module had categories associated with it (for Publications it was the publication year). This enables the Starr Cancer people to simply enter the information for a module, specify the category, and it automatically shows up on the page. The styling was done via a css file.
The Sitefinity Navigation Widget has built-in functionality for highlighting the page you’re on and opening and closing sub-navigation. There are also options for setting up either a horizontal or vertical nav, for having the sub-navs expanded or contracted, and to select which pages are displayed in the navigation. To make the navigation look like the existing Starr Cancer site, all of the styling was done via external css.
