IMBInfo.tech WEBSITE FEATURES
Every website should promote and cross-link with all applicable Social Media platforms. Having your website referenced from other sites provides “ranking points” for your website and can help boost your websites results in search engine ranking results like Google, Bing, and DuckDuckGo, among others.
The primary Social Media sites to consider are Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Twitter. If you are not familiar with creating your brand across, and cross-linking your website with Social Media, no worries, we are here to help. We can setup everything for you, handle all of the technical
aspects to have everything flow smoothly, and ensure all your links are working across all platforms and technologies.
Another important feature of any well-designed website is its flexibility for change. We leverage and target the latest and greatest Microsoft .NET Frameworks and technologies while developing, testing, deploying, and managing your website. You do not have to worry about the ever-changing
technology stream; we will handle all the details for you, to ensure your site is running reliably, with the best, and smartest technology available. We currently use a master-child page paradigm, where all the surrounding page assets, such as logos, titles, navigation controls, tagline, and footer controls, etc.,
are part of a “master” page, which all of the individual content pages derive from; ultimately making site maintenance and enhancements extremely low-maintenance by allowing the major “maintenance” focus to be on the content itself.
We at IMBInfo.tech are constantly working to streamline our processes and increase the use of digital forms and data with your Internet presence; we also want to ensure people feel safe and secure using your website and sharing their data with you. A website security layer provides secure and encrypted
access to a website and all its content. The security layer additionally includes firewall protection, virus scanning, and uptime monitoring, along with the key component, an SSL certificate, which will provide the website and its users a much higher level of safety and security. (SSL=Secure Sockets Layer,
a computing protocol that ensures the security of data sent via the Internet, by using encryption). “Secure” is designated on the Internet by the “lock” icon and the https:// protocol designation in the website URL or web address. An SSL Security certificate is necessary for an HTTPS web address. HTTPS is
the secure form of HTTP, and HTTPS websites have their traffic encrypted by security protocols (SSL/TLS). Many users will not notice the difference between an http:// and an https:// web address, but most browsers have started tagging HTTP sites as "Not secure" in more noticeable ways, attempting to provide
incentive for switching to HTTPS and increasing security. With this added security layer, we can also offer a feature on your website, a “Verified & Secured” icon that is clickable and appears on every page of your website; clicking the icon will show a security status report for the current website.
One customer maintains an extremely detailed and active event calendar that became increasingly difficult to maintain. Available calendar controls did not allow the level of customization and flexibility that was required in their events calendar; they needed to have the ability to “flag” an event as postponed
or cancelled almost real-time (especially so during the recent pandemic). We designed, road-tested, and implemented a complete, flexible, and reliable solution that met all their needs and more. Now, their events page programmatically reads all of the “current” events from a backend SQL Server database, from
the current date forward, for a period of one year, and then programmatically formats and outputs a results page, including color-coded events, titles, icons, and customizable links. We even provided the ability to dynamically inject HTML fragments from the database into the page real-time, so they could update or cancel an event,
and have it reflected on their website in real time. Additionally, this not only allows tracking local Corvette events with other metro Detroit area Corvette clubs, but also to track and maintain national events happening across the country.
Another customer required an extremely flexible approach to storing and displaying photo albums representing before and after pictures of their work. This feature had to be extremely flexible, allow storage of a lot of photo albums containing individual images, and
exceptionally low maintenance for the addition of new photo albums, or updating existing photo album images. Again, IMBInfo.tech put on our thinking caps and dug into the code to create something that would be flexible, efficient, and meet the customer requirements.
We architected a robust solution that uses a single, dynamic page that programmatically reads a photo album (website folder) directory contents, then programmatically processes all the image files in the designated location to dynamically create an output page
on-the-fly; a single, generic Album Detail page that contains a formatted image for each item found in the photo album collection, with each image dynamically formatted to accommodate the size of the current browser window, up to the maximum size of each image.
