Adaptive Templates (WSOL SuperTemplate)
The WSOL SuperTemplate is the flexible framework we've built to integrate with the CMS platform. The SuperTemplate uses an intelligent matrix to recognize which layout options are possible for a specific piece of content and adjust the template accordingly as the page loads. This means that a site that used to rely on as many as 10, 15 or 50 custom templates can now have the same flexibility in visual display and layout using just one template. Reducing the number of templates you must maintain can significantly reduce the time and cost of website maintenance and upgrades.
Front-End Development: Progressive Enhancement
To best accommodate the needs of a diverse audience with a range of technology and browsers, WSOL employs a Progressive Enhancement development process. Progressive Enhancement is a strategy for web design that emphasizes accessibility, semantic HTML mark-up, and external style sheet and scripting technologies with the underlying principal that basic content and functionality should be accessible to all web browsers. Progressive Enhancement focuses on delivering content to all users through any browser or internet connection, while also providing those with better bandwidth or more advanced browser software an enhanced version of the page. As such, WSOL uses HTML5 and CSS3 (the latest version of each language) while employing the Progressive Enhancement approach.
