The goal of the project was simply to upgrade the system from Kentico 5.5. to Kentico 9.x (which was the most current when 1/0 completed its development work) and retain the current article structure of the system.
- Retain the current article structure for over 300,000 articles.
- Match the current functionality of the CMS.
- Fix lingering bugs and issues not associated with the upgrade.
- Launch the new site with an eye toward re-developing the CMS
1/0 chose to attempt the upgrade of the site rather than try and re-write it for Newsmax.
- 1/0 employed a sequential upgrade process that entailed upgrading to each version of the Kentico product. 1/0 upgraded from Kentico 5.5 to Kentico 6 to Kentico 7 to Kentico 8 and finally to Kentico 9. Along the way, the site had to be functional in each and every version or the upgrade would not work.
- 1/0 worked hand-in-hand with both Newsmax’s and Kentico’s development teams to work through exceedingly complex and difficult challenges.
- When 1/0 ran into seemingly insurmountable roadblocks, Kentico was there to troubleshoot and answer any questions 1/0 had in terms of the code.
- 1/0 was responsible for integrating changes made at Newsmax as it upgraded the site.

1/0 re-purposed the American Society of Landscape Architects (“ASLA”) to re-develop the existing site to create a Responsive site that works well on PC, Tablet and Mobile devices. Utilizing UIKit, 1/0 was able to work with the existing code base to introduce a grid like system for all legacy templates contained within the site’s structure.
UIKit works on the concept of a grid system to create a fully responsive, fluid and nestable grid layout. The grid system of UIkit follows the mobile-first approach and accommodates
up to 10 grid columns. It uses units with predefined classes inside each grid, which define the column width. This makes it very flexible for overall design and responsive liquid layouts.
1/0 and ASLA
1/0 continues to host and maintain the ASLA Web site spanning almost a decade. Our company hosts and maintains the main ASLA Web site, the ASLA continuing education site (LACES.ASLA.org).

1/0 worked with ad agency Swanson Russell, launched a fully redesigned and responsive site – www.propanecouncil.org. The technologies to be used were specified by Propane Council to be Ektron as the CMS and Volusion as the third party eCommerce solution. The API calls for Volusion are limited so 1/0 imported all products stored in Volusion into Ektron so the product display would have maximum flexibility and not be restricted by the API calls. The Volusion API could then be used to pass the product information in to cart over to volusion for the remainder of the checkout process.
The remainder of the site’s content leverages the Ekton smartforms, Ektron API and Ektron User profiles to create a new responsive look and feel for their Web site. For these pieces 1/0 worked with Swanson Russell to formulate all business rules and address any questions that arose when integrating real world data with the designs.
