Plugin: Preferred Vendors

Plugin Overview: A plugin that would allow someone to add a new vendor to a database table and upload the vendor's logo so that the image cam be viewed on the screen someplace.

Over the past 5 weeks, I have been slowly working through creating my first Mura Plugin that will complete the objectives listed above. This functionality was hand coded within the prior content management system and is needed in the Mura powered website. Utilizing the resources available online and through email assistance of Jas Panesar (www.panesar.net) and Greg Moser (www.gregmoser.com) along with Support Forum posts and watching recorded episodes of The Mura Show got me off to a good start on creating Mura plugins.

Knowing that Mura has an advertising component built in to the base package, I have not been able to get this to work and display information in the area designed for these logos as the current advertising section of Mura is all based on money which the preferred vendors section is done based on contracts that the specific business has to help reduce costs within the educational industry. I am still trying to resolve my issue with the advertising section of Mura in hopes that I would be able to use this in the future.

This plugin utilized a framework as a way to give myself some structure. The Plugin is listed on the Mura Marketpalce at http://www.getmura.com/marketplace/apps/fw1-plugin-template/ and is a starting point for plugin development.
