Launched New Online Presence for Family Optical Centre Powered by ColdFusion + Mura CMS

Family Optical Centre, Inc. has officially launched their first ever online presence at Family Optical Centre has been a part of the Rockford-area community for over forty-five years and currently operates three locations throughout the area. If you're in the market for some new frames and/or lenses, you might be interested in taking advantage of some of their Special Offers too.

The site is powered by Adobe® ColdFusion® and Microsoft® SQL Server with online content management provided via Mura CMS. Talented artist and designer Greg L. provided an elegant, yet simple design which I quickly and easily converted into HTML, CSS and Mura CMS templates.

Congratulations to the team at Family Optical Centre on your new online presence. Best wishes for continued success!

That is a slick layout, and the back end seems like it's just as amazing. I don't really get to try out CMS products at my office all that often, so it's nice to see when someone goes through the effort to make it all work. What did you do for learning the Mura mindset? Tackle the docs? Just wing it?

Thanks! Yeah, after spending time going through the limited documentation, I found some additional information on their forums. Besides that, I just forced myself to get under the hood and poke around ... a lot of trial and error, but in the end it's been worth it. Using Mura does save me a ton of time when developing client sites and allows me to spend extra time building custom apps when needed.

@Steve, that is a nice clean site, looks great!

I just put up my 1st mura site here:

I am not done with it, I want to build a plugin for them to allow them to control the menu a bit better rather than straight html, but for now it will do the job.

Congrats on launching your site! Building plugins can be a bit challenging at first, but like anything else, it takes time to learn how to do it. Good luck!
