Line :: WordPress Consultancy & Build

Line Communications is a market leader in bespoke e-learning content development with clients including Barclays, KPMG, Ford and Toyota. I was contracted by them to update and improve their existing WordPress-based website. Working closely with their marketing departmant to work out their new requirements and ways they currently used their site, I reinstalled WordPress, imported their data, updated the existing plugins whilst checking comptibility, and then updated their bespoke theme in a variety of ways including:
  • Making the theme compatible with the improved functionality of WordPress 3.0.
  • Updating the design to incorporate the new site designs from the supplied PhotoShop files.
  • Adding an elegantly degrading post slideshow that works in Internet Explorer 6.
  • Adding the ability to seamlessly pull in their Twitter content and YouTube channel.
   

Integra CLO :: WordPress Site

I was commissioned by them to build a new website to replace their rather dated original site.

The site was setup to be instantly scalable and self managed by their various staff.

Gracelands Yard :: BuddyPress Site

Gracelands yard is basically a collective of alternative therapists and practitioners working together to offer a vast array of health therapies. I was asked to build a site that complemented their easy going surroundings and philosophy whilst conveying a wealth of information about the services and classes on offer. I used a multisite instance of wordpress and added the powerful buddypress plugin. Each practioner had their own sub domain microsite within the gracelands umbrella site enabling them to control and administer their own content on the site whilst contributing as editors to the main site. Each sub domain also had the ability to render as a bespoke standalone site too. Groups and forums were also requested although they haven’t seen much use yet!
