Orange Beach Association – Airtable and Joomla data integration
The OBA Website has been providing news, weather, and an information directory on the Alabama/Florida Gulf Coast (AFGC™) since 2006. We were asked to automate the data transfer of business listing information housed in an Airtable database into the MySQL database for their already existing OBA Community Website, which is powered by the Joomla content management system (CMS).
By automating the data transfer, the tasks associated with entering new business listing or updating existing listings was eased considerably. The client can now make all the changes to the listings in Airtable and those changes, additions, and deletions are automatically updated on the OBA Website.
We extended the Airtable capability by providing embeddable code that instantly displays the client’s social embeds including Google Maps, Facebook feeds, and Instagram galleries.
MTS thoroughly enjoyed working with the OBA site owner and are appreciative of the opportunity to be of service.
If you have data residing in an Airtable database that you would like to connect to another database please contact us for a no charge consultation. In any case, take a look at the OBA Community Website. It is chock-full of great information about the AFGC™ Community!
