Website redesign and development of private membership portal



After a redesign of the main website of FNEEQ, the Fédération nationale des enseignantes et des enseignants du Québec, Koumbit's web development team was approached with a request to create a members only space which would allow users to share and discuss documents and other private information pertaining to their union.

The organisation's needs:

  • A user friendly forum and document depot protected by a custom login page and accessible only to members
  • Multiple permissions levels including site administrators, moderators, and participants separated into different sectors
  • Email notifications for forum posts, dependant on both the user's role and sector
  • A hierarchical categorisation system for documents and forums, including categorisation by sector and sub-category

Our proposal:

  • Create a separate WordPress site using the same customized theme as their main site, with integration for the forums and documents
  • Implement customized WordPress login page as the landing for the website, with automated redirect to the appropriate sector's home page following login
  • Using a combination of BBPress, BBPress Private Groups, BBPress Notify (NoSpam), GD BBPress Attachments, and in-house custom plugins, develop the ability to create multiple forums organised by sector and sub category, as well as multiple dynamic document depots organized by sector and sub-category. These site areas are only accessible to members of the correct permissions level and sector.
  • Develope a custom plugin to allow for the creation of hierarchies of sub-categories within which documents could be organized
  • Remove access to the administrative dashboard for users who did not need it
  • Implement Nav Menu Roles and Widget Context plugins to control which menus and menu items are shown to users on certain pages
  • Integrate with BuddyPress to allow the creation of profiles for forum users
