Looking for arts, sports and heritage in the Burnley area? pointme is Burnley Council’s website for all that. With listings for organisations and events, fun things to do and community activities.
Completely bespoke, pointme is built with lashings of open source goodness, like php, mySQL and jQuery. We designed pointme from the ground up, including a back end interface for users to add and edit their own pointme profiles. pointme also brings in listings from burnleymechanics via an RSS feed, so that there was no need to duplicate the work already done on that site. In turn, both pointme and the mechanics feed event listings to burnley.gov.uk
pointme features a reductive search, which shows all the live results on the site until you start to type and then, letter by letter, the list reduces. It searches not only what you can see on the screen but also hidden values. For instance, typing a day of the week will show events that are on that day.
