For over 20 years, the Falkirk Islamic Centre has served as a spiritual centre for its local community. During the early months of the pandemic, the committee decided it was time to upgrade their site. The initial website had launched in 2011, on a version of Joomla that hadn’t been updated since launch. When it came to functionality that a spiritual centre might require, such as registration forms, the mosque had, for years, relied on third-party services like Google Forms.
For their new website, the committee wanted a website that looked modern while still retaining elements of traditional Islamic art and calligraphy. They also requested that the website has certain functionality built in so that they wouldn’t require their users to move off the website in order to do complete simple tasks such as registration, viewing events and timetables.
What we did:
- Created a bespoke and responsive website, able to accommodate any screen size and resolution.
- Migrated the clients content over from Joomla to WordPress.
- Integrated booking systems, prayer timetables and event calendars, as well as a food bank registration system.
