SUNY 518 College Connect

Posted on

3tone Digital wrapped up an exciting project for The State University of New York, “518 College Connect” was built for college sign-ups to SUNY.

We’ve fully utilized the WordPress Block Theme editor to bring something modern, robust, and technically intriguing to the table.

Technical Deep-Dive:
We decided to go all-in with the WordPress Block Theme editor for its flexibility and native Gutenberg compatibility. This means we’ve maximized core WordPress functionalities without relying too much on third-party plugins, making the site lightweight and super fast. Custom blocks were developed to handle unique features required for college sign-ups, like dynamic forms and real-time validations. We also implemented custom post types for college programs and events, adding an extra layer of organization and ease of use for admins.

Under the Hood:

  • WordPress Core (latest version)
  • WordPress Block Theme Editor
  • Custom Gutenberg Blocks
  • Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) for extra metadata
  • Custom Post Types for college programs and events

The tech stack and customizations made on SUNY 518 College Connect offer a great study in what’s possible when you stray a bit from the beaten path.
