Property is nine tenths

This London apartment property website is now live. Featuring flash image maps of the apartments by floor level, special loops to show the various apartment plans, virtual tours of the show apartment and lots of shiny brochure images.

As time goes on the apartments will be marked sold or reserved so website visitors will be able to see at a glance which apartments are available.

The proximity to Hampstead Heath in northwest London is an attraction which may well be reflected in the property prices...

Wholesale seed potato merchants

Jamieson Brothers now have a merchant website for wholesale supplies of Scottish seed potatoes. This is database driven with use of php and asp scripts to control content display and user account features, and was developed in partnership with the prodigious Kit Allen.

This runs in conjunction with the "JBA Direct" website that is geared towards selling seed potatoes to domestic customers in the UK.

The wholesale site has been built specially for garden centres, allotment societies and other seed potato merchants so that they can benefit from trade prices when they buy seed potatoes in bulk quantities.

NextGen Gallery again

The existing Comlongon Castle website image gallery module was struggling to cope with the volume of images so it was time to employ a Wordpress installation with the renowned NextGen gallery plug-in to help organise the photos into themed galleries (AJAX pagination) with slideshow and piclens options.

This is to be achieved using an alternative Comlongon Castle domain as a sort of mirror to the main site so that web visitors can switch between the two resources, with each resource being able to provide either text content and documents, or images.

By extension, this could also be applied to video content - at the moment the Comlongon YouTube channel is in it's infancy but this is the ideal resource to host video content that links back to the main 'outcome' site, where web visitors can complete goals such as make contact or use the wedding calculator to generate a guideline wedding quote.
