Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce

During my time working with RainStorm, I developed a new, mobile-friendly website for the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce. It contains a wide array of information including member news and logo displays, news, events and social feeds and a variety of integrations and custom solutions.

Unique features & challenges

Every project is unique, has different requirements and often involves thinking outside of the box and hours of research. Here are some challenges I faced during the development process and features that make this one special.

Ad management

The Chamber needed a dedicated space for online advertising and sponsorships. I leveraged custom post types and Advanced Custom Fields Pro to create a simple ad management system that suits their specific needs.

The main requirement was to create several ad zones throughout the site, as well as have an option to create a site-wide campaign with a single ad. I created the Zones custom field in ACF with a predefined list of zones and customized it further with a filter – once a zone is selected and ad published, that zone becomes unavailable to choose for other ads.

Different zones can be selected per ad, allowing high level of ad placement customization.

I also added a simple function that warns admins about selected site-wide campaigns when creating a new ad.

* Displays a notification in the admin if there is a site-wide ad active elsewhere.

function rsc_invisible_ad_admin_notice( $post ) {

$args = array(
'post_type' => 'rsc-ads',
'post_status' => 'publish',
'meta_query' => array(
'key' => 'ad_all_zones',
'value' => '1',
'compare' => '=='

$sitewide = get_posts($args);

if ( $post->post_type == 'rsc-ads' && !empty( $sitewide ) && !get_field( 'ad_all_zones', $post->ID ) ) {

echo '<div class="notice error rsc-ad-notice">';
echo '<p>This ad will not show because you have a <strong>site-wide</strong> ad active.</p>';
echo '</div>';


add_action( 'edit_form_after_title', 'rsc_invisible_ad_admin_notice' );

ChamberMaster integration

The site includes an integration and styling of the ChamberMaster member and event management tool. I created custom templates that display information like members directory, job postings and application forms directly from ChamberMaster, while keeping the experience seemless for the end user.
