Business Requirement

Wettforum required a CMS solution using which the website visitors can register and participate in discussions in the forum. Along with this, Wettforum wanted to place third-party ads on the website and generate more traffic to support their revenue model.

Solution

For a discussion forum as huge as Wettforum, it takes thoughtful planning and precise execution to elevate it to its full potential. As the website welcomes a large number of visitors each day, it must be made to remain stable even with sudden surges in traffic.

To cater to the needs of the client and the website, we chose vBulletin, a powerful community software. It exhibited remarkable capabilities in the development process and magnified the efforts involved. Using vBulletin, functionalities including discussion forum, registration and login were easily developed and integrated into the website. 

For placing third-party ad placements, we suggested Revive Adserver, and it did a pretty great job for the same. As the website followed an advertisement revenue model, the system must be nothing less than perfect, and our team successfully incorporated it. As a discussion forum, the website must be fast loading and easy to navigate. We designed the site with user-friendliness in mind and fused it into its very essence.
