The Study Websites
Alongside the main website, the Telethon Kids platform supports over 13 additional study websites. Each study website was created without writing an extra line of code. Shared blocks and a custom theming engine housed in the same CMS instance allowed for content editors to create new websites with very little effort. Despite being standalone websites, Episerver FIND's powerful search functionality allows the user to search for content from any of the study websites, regardless of which website they are currently viewing. The global navigation tool at the top of the website enables users to effortlessly view and navigate between the study websites without having to memorise URL addresses.
Since going live, Telethon Kids has seen a positive impact in user engagement and traffic from search engines.
