"PainCast is an online visual guide designed specifically for interventional pain specialists. Ask questions and get answers from pain management experts."
For this assignment, I was tasked with create a physician only website which is for members only. Most of the pages outside of the landing page and register are locked for non-signed users. PainCast is referred to as the "Pain Management Network" because it features many different original videos, articles, podcast and literature. The main demographic of this website is doctors in the interventional pain field. This site which was launched in late 2016 has been a growth of over 3,000 members in 2018. All hopeful members go through a detailed verification process in order to assure that the members are indeed doctors. This site is built with a customized version of the optimizer pro
theme and uses many different plugins. This includes Ultimate Member
for managing the user only pages, UserMeta
for the keeping all of the doctors analytical information organized in the back-end. Gravity forms
for the registration
form and approval process and bbpress
for the forum area. PainCast has many different features this includes over 150 original videos, 2,000 scholarly articles, 300 podcasts and 100 plus literature books in the field of Pain Management. It also includes a profile page where members can customize their own area of the website as well as a member search which allows for users to connect and discuss pain management. A save to profile feature which allows the user to save a post (video, article podcast) to their profile so they can view later. Expert profiles which show off different professionals that are featured in the videos. A filter by category search which allows the user to view their search and filter it by different post types (Articles, Videos, etc...). Which was built with with the amazing plugin Algolia
. Invite new members page and submit your own original content page. And finally a news section which features the latest news articles in the pain management field updated weekly.
