A Wix Forum Site is Perfect for Fueling Online Conversation
Creating a forum on your Wix website is a brilliant way to foster a sense of community and engagement among your audience.
A forum provides a platform for users to discuss topics, share ideas, and provide support to each other. Wix offers intuitive tools to set up a forum, making it easier for you to manage discussions and moderate content, ensuring a positive and enriching user experience.
CLARIFICATION OF REQUIREMENTS AND DRAFTING OF SCOPEWe discuss your idea. We find out the specifics of the business, what problem should be solved and what task to complete. If necessary, we conduct an audit of business processes and develop a digitalization strategy. We set measurable goals - the acceptance criteria of the project and definitions of done of the individual tasks. We draw up a basic technical assignment.
DEFINITION OF TECHNOLOGIES AND TOOLSWe break down business goals into technical subtasks. We draw up a step-by-step plan for achieving the goal. We design the application architecture. We determine the priority functions. We make a list of services for integration. We are planning integration methods: do the services have APIs, do you need to write scripts for data exchange. We solve other technical issues.
DETERMINATION OF THE PROJECT TIMELINEWe forecast the timing. The duration of the project depends on the goals set, the scale and complexity of the technical work. We choose a development methodology, selecting a team. We divide the project into stages, determine the sequence and number of development cycles/phases.
AGREEMENT AND SIGNING OF THE AGREEMENTWhen everything is agreed, we sign the contract, attach the technical specification to it. Thanks to 7 years of experience in development and streamlined processes, we always adhere to deadlines and quality. We give our clients a legal guarantee that the obligations will be fulfilled.
DESIGN CREATIONOnce the schematic structure of the pages is ready, we are finalizing the details of the appearance of the web site. Our designers think over the color scheme, create graphic elements and animations, and select photos. As in the previous stages, we work closely with the customer and agree on design options.
PROGRAMMINGWe write the code for the user interface - the front-end, and - the server-side - the back-end. Our team includes skilled programmers. Frontenders translate graphic layouts into languages that the browser understands. Back-end developers write code to process data on the server. Each project is supervised by a senior developer.
CONNECTING EXTERNAL SERVICESExternal services help expand the functionality of sites without the need to write similar functions from scratch. We integrate payment systems, delivery services, geolocation services and connect all the databases necessary for the project. We also synchronize the web application with your corporate software.
WORKING ON SAFETYWe think over the general security model during the design stage. At this stage, we are already implementing security measures. We check the reliability of the hosting, we carry out its pre-configuration. We are looking for vulnerabilities in the website application. We connect the HTTPS security protocol, check the protection against DDoS and XSS attacks.
TESTINGWe carry out the necessary types of tests. We check functionality, usability, compatibility with different types of devices: mobile, tablets, laptops and PCs, we do testing the site in different browsers. We measure speed and performance. We test databases.
DELIVERY OF THE FINISHED PROJECTWe transfer the web application from the test server to the permanent one. We train you and your staff to work with new dashboards - site content management system, CRM, ERP or others. We measure the results of the implementation of our solution - whether the goals of the project are met.
