Website Development Case Study: ClimbForTrails.org
The Climb For Trails website combines social networking and fundraising capability into a single platform, where users can not only interact with one another but also raise money for helping maintain various trail systems in Colorado.
The social components of the site were built using WordPress and BuddyPress, a popular social plugin for WordPress sites. Because the site was also intended to handle fundraising duties, we included deep integration with the widely-used SalsaLabs fundraising system. And we made sure that users had the ability to log their hikes and climbs on the site, as well as sponsor the hikes and climbs of other users.
