Brothers Building has showcased their work for many years in two iterations of a website. It was time to add more pictures of their projects and give the graphics a visual modernization. The site was revamped on the WordPress platform so that company personnel can manage content going forward.
Rob Graham wrote his first children’s book and wanted a website that reflected the lively and colorful illustrations in the book. Let’s Go See It! highlights adventure and life lessons in a vibrant picture book.
Seeking a website to display a garden fountain, the owner of Your Garden Home and I put together a simple display of some photos and videos using WordPress.
Around the time hosting services began to strongly advise upgrading the PHP coding language to version 8.0, I got an urgent call from The Barre-Tones that their website had gone down. Suspecting the correct reason, that the theme and one or more plugins had deprecated code, I reverted to the latest back-up and back to PHP 7.x. Following up, I explained that it was only a matter of time before we would need to address this again, and that their aging website had served them well for many years. So we worked together to implement a new theme, some new functionality, and a visual refresh.
“Rhoda Lerman is known as a ‘writer’s writer’,” noted by her daughter on her website. I was contacted for website assistance prior to the late Lerman’s last novel being published.
Moretown established its first professional website a decade ago as part of the Vermont Digital Economy initiative. The timing to upgrade was perfect and not a moment too soon as the aging theme and plugins were soon to break when platform updates including updating to PHP 8 would be made.
A new child theme was developed based on the WP Engine Genesis platform, bundling newer functionality and mobile compatibility. Older plugins were retired and replaced. Fortunately the code originally written for the uploading of agenda and minutes PDFs survived the PHP update, of course after appropriate testing on a development installation. Reorganizing information was key, especially for the lengthening list of announcements seeming to pile up on a desk with no permanent home on the old site. These were converted to standard Posts and categorization was added so they would display on department pages.
While providing periodic updates to the Seacraft DPV site, I continued to be frustrated to have to work in the Beaver Builder page layout program when WordPress native block functionality had come so far and is now just as good. I changed to a simple Genesis theme and styled as needed to closely replicate the original site.
Dr. Diamond needed a website that she and her assistant could update, so WordPress was the logical choice. The website highlights the multi-faceted aspects of her career in psychology, as an author of books with appeal to professionals and scholars, a professor and seasoned speaker, researcher, and therapist in private practice.
The A Johnson Company, located in Bristol, Vermont, had been ready for a while for a website that they could update. The old website was converted to WordPress and a robust News section was added. Two capable persons in the office were fully trained and they are keeping the site updated in parallel with their similar postings on social media.
When the ISTFP came to me for website guidance, their WordPress site had been developed in 2012 and was still not mobile compatible. Our 2021 redevelopment brought the site up to the latest technical functionality.
The technical highlight of this project is a membership system with checks and balances. WordPress provides native user functionality. Public sign-up has always been fraught with spammed submissions. Various good membership systems exist, and it is up to the developer to determine which one(s) have the best functionality for the client needs. This membership needed less interaction with each other and more automated payment functionality.
