  • Cop Talk was created to help the city of Santa Ana spread important information to the local community, specifically targeting high school and college age residents. People in this age group tend to be apprehensive about contacting local law enforcement, so this site was set up with this age group in mind- creating a comfortable environment where they can get information, while still speaking to who they are.
    Challenge
    As a developer, I had to come up with a way to make it as easy as possible to log in as administrator and edit content on the website (CMS), specifically on the “About” page, without any complications.
    Solution / Development
    The solution to this was to add an organized log-in system with security two-way encryption, so that even the database will not display the password. While modifying content, I added a Microsoft Word like text editor so the editor for their website can create bold, italic, underlined, colored, aligned, and bulleted text with a single click of a button. By using PHP and a MySQL database it made it possible for the text editor to store content and text styles, providing the administrator with easy to read buttons and one click features.
    Goal
    My goal in developing this site was to make it simple to log in and edit, so that someone that doesn’t have a lot of technical computer based skills could manage the site with ease.
