About the Client

Abraham Lincoln University is an online law school offering live, interactive Juris doctor and other online law degrees and online law programs.

The Task

The goal was to develop a Wordpress website from scratch based on design mockups from the client.

The challenge was to implement the complex structure for Schools, Degrees, and Programs. Each school should have Degrees in it and each Degree should have Programs connected to it. All the content for each of the entities should be editable from the Admin panel of the website.

The Solution

As a first step we made a technical document that describing the structure and functionality of the website. We decided to make Schools as custom post types and add Degrees and Programs as custom taxonomies to them. With this approach, we had to create custom template for the taxonomies to make them editable from the admin panel.

The post type had a lot of options and fields for the content. We implemented those with Advanced Custom Fields plugin and custom coding using Wordpess Core features.
