Mondavi Institute back on solid ground, vinecon.ucdavis.edu is live again

December 17, 2010

The RMI Center for Wine Economics was having an issue with their website and content management system. There was a security hole that allowed attackers to exploit their system by defacement and malicious upload. Terabytes worth of file transfers were happening within hours. Delta Systems was able to secure the system and move hosting under Delta’s control. There is still work to be done in implementing a more advanced content management system to better suit their needs, but the Mondavi Institute is pleased to be back online. Delta Systems is also pleased to be trusted to host a University of California – Davis website.

About the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine Economics

The RMI Center for Wine Economics undertakes and facilitates research and education about the economics of the production and consumption of wine grapes and wine in California and around the world.

The Center for Wine Economics focuses on economic developments in the domestic and international markets for wine and their implications for competitiveness of the wine industry in California and the United States.

The Center emphasizes applied research but is engaged in teaching and outreach activities related to its theme of wine economics.

Eldon, MO School District Launches New Websites

August 13, 2010

Eldon, MO School District's New Website

Eldon, MO launched a new website for each school in their district this week

For our latest project, Delta Systems was asked to design and develop a comprehensive solution for managing the websites of the Eldon School District and each of its indiviual schools. The challenge was to seamlessly and comprehensively distribute the management responsibilities of the site across the schools, rather than have everything controlled at the central office.

Using the Multi-Site functionality built into WordPress 3.0 (formerly exclusive to WordPress MU), we were able to build a system that allows moderators within each individual school to update and maintain their own respective sub-sites while leaving administrators at central office the ability to oversee the entire system from a single login.

We are WordPress experts

We are WordPress Experts

Now, the district can spread out the responsibilities of content updating by school, department, and teacher, avoiding the potential of a bottleneck at the central office.

Client Quotes

“The new website looks amazing! We are getting a lot of nice comments about it.”
Colleen McGirl – Secretary to the Superintendent

“Like the banner! Like the design! Everything looks great.”
Matt Davis – Superintendent

Delta Launches Site for Timmerman’s Maintenance Technology

July 23, 2010

Timmerman's Maintenance TechnologyThis week, Delta Systems launched our first site utilizing the newest features in WordPress 3.0. The lucky recipient was a local Columbia heating & cooling company called Timmerman’s Maintenance Technology.

Tom Timmerman needed a simple site showing his phone number, a list of services, and a few customer testimonials. Delta Systems, working along with local media group Boxcar Films, gave him a fresh and fun design that did exactly that.

Not being overly experienced in web development and content management systems, Tom also wanted to ensure that he would be able to update his services list and insert new testimonials with ease. That’s where the new WordPress custom post type feature came into play.

WordPress 3 Custom Post Types

The backend of Timmerman's website using the new WordPress custom post type feature

Delta Knows WordPress 3.0 Custom-Post Types

Using custom-tailored forms, Tom can now add, change, or remove items from his list of services with 2 clicks of the mouse. And when a customer pays him a compliment, he can just as easily add a testimonial to the page in the same way.   Either way, the output is instantly styled and published to his homepage, making this one of our most user-friendly content management experiences to date.
