Events on the home page maintain themselves
Ludwigshafen University of Applied Sciences
Parallel to the modernization of the homepage of the University of Applied Sciences in Ludwigshafen, our event solution Campus Events was introduced at the university.
Since events are also to be listed on the new homepage, an automatic import of the event data maintained in Campus Events was obvious. For this purpose, the TYPO3 extension developed by Brain Appeal was used. After the data exchange, TYPO3 editors can display the imported events on any desired page. The central administration of the events, however, remains in Campus Events. The same applies to the management of participants.
For the university the import was configured according to customer requirements and the output on the website was graphically adapted according to individual wishes. The website visitors now receive all important event data in a tabular overview. If they are interested in an event, they are redirected to Campus Events, where more details are listed and registration for an event is possible.
For the editors, the data import avoids duplication of work in the TYPO3 system.
