Back in 2010, we partnered with nRelate to create a plugin for the WordPress community based on their awesome patented
technology. The plugin, nRelate Related Content, was an immediate hit and was used by over 60,000 websites. The success of that product allowed us to build two more plugins with nRelate; Most Popular and Flyout.

This success has not gone unnoticed. In July 2012, Ask.com (an IAC company), purchased nRelate for an undisclosed sum, and absorbed nRelate’s technology into their company.

BrainPOP Educators, the teacher community of BrainPOP, features free lesson plans, video tutorials, professional development tools, graphic organizers, best practices, and much more. They came to SlipFire wanting to build a true community site, where teachers can interact with each other and share information. So, using a combination of WordPress muliti-site and BuddyPress, we worked with the BrainPOP team to create the ideal teacher community.  Since the community was just one of many BrainPOP websites, we also built real-time data syncing between BrainPOP.com and BuddyPress, and imported data for over 130,000 users.

Features Include: Member profiles, forums, groups, integrated blog, custom widgets, front-end spell checking, single sign-on and real-time syncing between multiple sites.

Famous Monsters of FilmlandFamous Monsters of Filmland (FM) has been defining horror since the 1950’s. Horror can be found on line, on television, in books, in comic books, in movies and in role playing games – and they cover it all.  FM needed a website that was flexible and could showcase their extensive library of videos and comic books, and they chose SlipFire to build it.   We started with the Genesis theme framework for security and speed, and mixed in some Google webfonts for that comic book look.  The result is an awesomely scary site!

Features Include: Fully customizable Header and background advertisement, custom video slider, custom comic book loader, integrated streaming video, Google web fonts.

SlipFire is located in New York City, and we’re very active in the local WordPress community. Besides co-organizing two WordCamps, we also organize the local WordPressNYC Meetup.  Two of the goals of the meetup is to network and educate our members, so what better way to do this then to create a community website using BuddyPress… and that’s how WPNYC.ORG was born!  SlipFire was the lead developer on this project, along with two community members.

WPNYC Features: Built on BuddyPress, full community features, web font support, custom search, auto tweeting, auto submit to Facebook and Linkedin, sharing (tweet, FB like,etc),  just plain awesome

 

247wallst247WallSt.com is the premier website for round-the-clock news on business and finance.  Started in 2006 on Typepad, they decided in Dec 2008 that they needed to move to WordPress VIP to take their website to the next level.  We worked closely with the 247 team to keep the same look and feel of the very successful original design, and added a number of new features to build a community.

247WallSt.com features: a host of social networking tools; Email post to a friend, post to Facebook, Follow on Twitter, Share This, Digg, Yahoo Buzz, Delicious, Fark and Reddit.  We also integrated the Intense Debate enhanced comment system, and a tabbed interface in the sidebar to highlight popular posts and the Editor’s picks.  Setting a post as a “Featured Article” highlights it on all pages.

The ladies at Gotta Knit in Greenwich Village are warm and friendly, and they wanted a website that reflected their personalities. First we picked warm, fun colors and then we added fun borders to everything. A large typeface added some warmth, and some line art added the finishing touch.

GottaKnit.net features: an easy to use event manager, integrated mailing list, photo gallery and a personalized Google Map.
