The Therapy Directory is both a Free book and an on-line directory of Complementary Therapists.
Each year Gill Routledge, the publisher of the book updates the entries for the therapists who want to advertise in the book and also updates the online version.
Until 2010 the site was a fairly static site, requiring a professional to create the content. To coincide with publication of the printed directory Bobbing Wide developed a replacement site using the Drupal Content Management System (CMS).
The new website allows searching the directory by therapy, location and therapists names AND content.
Three levels of membership of the on-line directory are supported:
- Bronze members are listed but cannot change their own content.
- Silver members can edit their own content.
- Gold members can edit their own content, create events and articles.
There is an automated registration form which allows therapists to enter their details. The site administrators approve the entries and obtain payment (via a Paypal button) prior to them being published.
