Vintage Kent is an online directory of vintage themed events and businesses in Kent. Developed as a personal project for my partner, this site had to be simple and quick to maintain or add to without any coding required. whilst providing powerful functionality and features.
The site features separate business and event directories, which can be filtered by multiple categories or locations. All entries or the results of your search can also be viewed on an interactive map. A proximity based search using Google’s geo-location API makes it possible to search for listings close to you.
A wedding’s sub-site provides more wedding focused directories and more specific categories to filter by.
Multiple “featured” widget areas and banners can be easily altered with just a few clicks, and new listing’s owners are automatically mailed an introduction and link to their page via Mailchimp’s API.
