AMID: Australian Music Industry


Australian Music Industry is site basted on engine made for EducationHQ project (same client). The diffrence is in branding, widgets and layout. Site is devoted to music industry overall and specifically to to music industry in Australia. Site itself can be used for both news and advertising purposes. There are a few paid services - some information is hidden behind the paywall (requiring user to have a paid subscription). Site is expanding rapidly, in nearest future it's panned to implement e-commerce features like ticket merchandise. Functionalities: By default, AMID supports a few types of informational entries: listings (some sort of advertisements made by company in order to promote themselves), news (strictly informational articles), resources (articles with some additional functionality on adding related files/resources/data) and events (informational articles with date-tracking functionality). As every good news site should, AMID provides search with flexible filters that can be changed from admin panel. The platform provides a facility to edit and configure different site features from admin only (thus removing the need to get deep into the code each time something has to be changed eg. menu bar). Frontend widgets within AMID are configurable and many of them can be added or repositioned from the admin page. The platform brings a basic user management system. The user management system is accompanied with a flexible permission system. Thus, different categories of users can have different rights in a flexible manner. Each piece of content (either it's the category or an entry) can have it's individual permissions based on group or even username. Content can be geoIP restricted (be available for users with specific IPs only). The Platform was created in order to provide different paid services (eg. buying tickets), thus integration with two popular payment systems is also in place: it supports Stripe and Paypal. Additionally, AMID platform is integrated nicely with a popular Email Campaign service, named "Campaign Monitor". The platform can be extended with multiple sites that are used and controlled by the same admin, but provide individualized content and data. For reference you can check out the EducationHQ (project that AMID is based on) subsites: au.education.hq and sutdent.educationhq.com. They have different menus, a bit different widgets, pages etc. Main part of the project was finished in September 2015, we're providing support for the site and launching new functionalities since.
