Created to offer businesses in the Stranraer area a platform to advertise on for free. They can sign up and list their business, events and offers and manage each by themselves.
I was approached by a business owner in the Stranraer area to help find a solution to the lack of online presence the area has.
The system is built in the CodeIgniter framework and using Bootstrap for the front end.
Effort has been put in to give the website as small a footprint as possible since most users are visiting from mobile devices.
The site has integrated with the TripAdvisor API for pulling through ratings and reviews on to businesses pages. They do so by pasting the link to their TA listing in a specified box, this is then parsed with PHP to get the listing ID which is used in the TripAdvisor API to get the ratings and reviews (since TA doesnt provide a simple way to get your listing ID)View Visit Stranaer
