How our websites are built
All MADD Canada Chapter websites use the content management system called WordPress.
WordPress uses themes for the appearance of the web site. A theme provides the look and feel of a website as well as many of the functions beyond what WordPress itself provides.
In 2021, all MADD Chapters sites were converted to a theme called Total. The Risen theme that the websites used before has been phased out.
The Total theme has a mobile-friendly responsive design, meets international standards for accessibility, and has all the features you might need: photo and video gallery, events, news blog, and staff profiles (for your Board of Directors). In addition, Total provides an easy-to-use page builder which allows you to add page elements like buttons, image galleries, accordians, columns, and more.
The steps for making updates to your website are a bit different for the Total theme compared to our previous theme. We have created new tutorials to walk you through the most common tasks.
The new tutorial pages are a work in progress. Missing links will be added as the pages are completed. The linked pages below should cover many of the topics you’ll need. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, please email us at email@example.com.
