Topsin's web site highlights their amazing direct to fan marketing platform for artists.
Front End Description
I had created a custom WordPress theme for this client a few years ago and this time. This time around they decided to take it a step further and wanted a complete CMS. I used the basic design from the previous theme and added in a number of custom content areas that dynamically pulled in content, and used some slick AJAX to manipulate the layout.
Back End Description
There are a number of custom plugins used for this site to control content, buttons, top content (image/text/video, etc), page vs. sub page content, active tabs, and the sidebar/bottom vignettes on each page. These custom plugins allowed the client to easily add other content to the pages and sub pages all by filling in some pre-defined fields on the edit/write page view.
