The Deed Chain is a project that depends heavily on its website to function. It’s a social network for tracking good deeds. Every time a good deed is done, a keychain is passed with a unique “Deed ID” on the back.
I built the website that allows people to enter their Deed ID codes, create an account, and leave a message for all the other “do gooders” up the chain. The site has an advanced management system that allows for the creation of thousands of unique Deed ID’s and a email notification system built in.
The site has social login and it’s own advance profile system. Each page uses a unique “timeline” style layout that keeps track of social shares, views and all good deeds down the chain.
This was a unique project pushing the boundaries of what I thought WordPress could do. I used a custom post type for each Deed Chain page and I used custom fields to mark whether a chain was “active” or “inactive” and what the Deed ID is for each chain. Each good deed is actually saved as a comment in the WordPress database and can be queried the same.
I am still actively developing this project and working on bug-fixes and upgrades with the owner. We want to add the ability to track where the deeds are posted from and to add a “browse” section on the home page for users to explore the top performing chains.
