Outtahand is a competitive volleyball league that also runs tournaments across the Greater Toronto Area. The previous website was difficult to update, not user friendly and unappealing. Outtahand wanted to expand their website to contain more media, the ability to update information easily and most importantly, a website that is easy to use by its visitors as the website has high weekly traffic due to weekly tournaments.
To reduce the initial cost and the possibility of re-doing the website due to new versions of content management systems, Outtahand opted out in using WordPress or any open source CMS. The challenge was, how to build a site so that the client can make updates as well? The solution was using PHP to read text files that are easy for the client to update and the longevity of the site will be upheld.
