Over the course of 12 months, we were able to build and deliver some key technical achievements. Here are some of our favourites.
Integration with YouTube API
The site displays in full width for sliders, on a grid of 1280 and 960px for desktops, and scales under 490px for mobiles. All sidebars, widgets, carousels are also scaled, or disabled according to the UI plan.
The integration with YouTube allows the carousel and hero items to pull directly from a channel or playlist. All comments and likes on YouTube can also be used. This was achieved through PHP and Google’s Developer console.
Category and taxonomy driven sliders
The main carousel automatically pulls from tailored blog posts from certain categories and taxonomies, such as post date and popularity. It will therefor priorities articles which have comments or are new. It automatically pulls the featured image as well as the excerpt.
Integration with Facebook API
The Facebook Integration allows visitors to create accounts using their Facebook information, and can also be used on mobiles without opening a browser. It will automatically pull the profile picture and basic information, which doesn’t require additional permissions from the user or review by Facebook. User information is also collected and stored in an XML which can easily be imported into email campaigns or bespoke CMS systems

Integration with Twitter API
Integrated with the Twitter API services, to deliver real-time tweets, posts and statistics. This allows SOAS to show Twitter activity with each subject area and school.
Integration with Google Analytics, Tag Manager and Retargeting
Integrated the Universal Analytics Java Script on all pages, within the header. This allows SOAS to integrate the website with Tag Manger, Google Data Studio and more. Making it easier to inform key decisions when running PPC and Social media campaigns.
