Föreningen Norden

A network of member associations

Föreningen Norden is a Swedish association with a lot of member associations. They needed a new website, and obviously they wanted it to work great on mobile devices, as well as on desktop computers.

Every association within Föreningen Norden wanted their own site, so we decided to build a site structure using a WordPress network install. The main site is Föreningen Norden’s site. This is where the general information is available, where you can apply for membership, and so forth. There are a lot of information here, which is handled by WordPress’s default Pages post type, whereas the news section is default posts.

Every member association has its own site within the network. The Föreningen Norden staff sets them up, and helps the members to maintain and update the sites. These subsites all carry most of the branding, with unique header images so that they can convey some of their own as well.
