Norges Trollingforbund is a organization in Norway that does trolling fishing in Norway. They wanted a solution to be able to sell memberships online, as previously this has been a lot of admin and paper work. They also wanted breathe fresh air into their old web design and forum.
The site had been affected by malware due outdated Joomla and Invision Power Board software. They also had over 9000 forum post and a few hundred members they wanted transferred.
We wanted to keep the colors but breathe more life into the page, as this has been a long standing community.
By using the main colors and generate a news feed like facebook this would give user of the community the idea to see who has been online and what has happened.
By design they also wanted the ability for members to register the fish on the go, and members could see their own stats.
The Design was changed to be easier to read and better on the eyes.
Malware Disinfection & Security
Anyone can check for malware and viruses, but the trouble with malware on websites is that its inside the code, and mostly on WordPress pages they also leave back doors.
We used intensive scans and found the malware on the old server, after this we isolated all of the malware and removed it. Once removed, we checked a few more things and prepared for a server move. Once we where happy that the page did not have any more back doors or malware attached to it, we upgraded the security and tested for all known malware. Our WordPress Care Plans comes with security tests and optimization plans, therefor Norges Trollingforbund chose to opt-in for this, to have a monthly report, and always see the progress of their site, now they don’t need to worry about the page, and can focus on their fishing skills. Due the new online payment system we also implemented SSL / HTTPS for them for additional security.
Custom Report Tool
Norges Trollingforbund wanted a custom built report tool for their members, they wanted stats and progress for their website. Where members could login to a site, and register their fish. This was to be used for competition but also for analytics. We created this and all saved into a custom database for easy exporting.
Speed & Optimization
Due all the malware and google recommending not visiting this page, we had to come up with a solution to get users back. After everything was cleaned we optimized the page to fit any screen. So users could have it on the go. Or sit and read when they where home. This ment due the mobility we needed a quick website.
