This Talent Agency Website is a straightforward looking corporate build at first glance. However, I can’t emphasize enough how much is packed under the hood of this engine! The original build dates all the way back to 1996, when it was a straight HTML website. In 2002, the earliest version of Mambo was adopted, and using Real Estate database-driven websites at the time, heavy PHP markup ensued. The result was one of the first talent agency websites of its type that allowed for User Registration and upload of Talent Profile, Photos and even Video. In 2005, the site was rolled over to Joomla. Many versions, templates, components, modules, plugins and core code hacks later led to the current rendition of the website you see here today.

This elegant Joomla website has truly stood the test of time. It has served literally thousands of talents and agents alike over they years. Major Corporate clients from Walt Disney World in Orland to MGM Grand in Las Vegas and more have booked talent from this website. The heart and soul of this website is its MySQL database, which has withstood thousands of registrations over the years. This same structure can be used on a number of service-oriented websites. If you want to automate your member registration and profile maintenance procedures, than a website like this may be exactly what you are looking for!*
*Disclaimer: After years of faithful development with Joomla, I have finally made the switch to WordPress. Like a lost friend, I now relegate Joomla to specific use instances, and recommend that all my clients choose WordPress CMS over Joomla (or any other CMS).
