New Wild Apricot Responsive Theme

Work has started on a new responsive theme for the Worthing and Adur Chamber of Commerce website. This new theme will replace the currently dated theme and bring a fresh, contemporary look and feel to the Chamber’s website.

The new responsive custom theme is being built within the Wild Apricot CMS (Content Management System).

This website update project will enable the Chamber’s user to easily view this website with mobile and tablet devices. Part of this project will include improving the user experience for the Chamber’s audience by working on the user journeys for tasks such as booking a networking event.

This bespoke theme is being design and developed to reflect the Chamber’s brand and will bring a fresh new design to an established website. If you would like to find about our website re-design services get in touch to see how we can help with your next website project.

WordPress Training

inspiringJust completed a bespoke WordPress Training session for Jacqui at Inspiring Introverts this was a two hour session focusing on questions and issues around editing and adjusting a custom WordPress website.

We covered a lot of ground and all of the raised issues were fully explained and guidance on WordPress use was given. Questions regarding WordPress SEO, editing posts, pages and images were addressed along with website content formatting, contact forms and website subscribers.

Its great to give a confidence boost to a fellow WordPress user and I feel that Jacqui can go away to edit and improve this custom WordPress website. I’m happy to provide a follow up session as is ongoing, as required, WordPress support should this be needed.

If you would be interested in discussing your WordPress training needs I can put together a session match your WordPress training requirements. Just call 07732 614914or get in touch with the contact page.

WordPress Starter Themes

I’m reviewing WordPress starter themes again for a series of projects that are coming up. If you are new to the starter theme concept they are well worth a look as they save a lot of development time and are a good base to build a WordPress theme from.

You’ll need to have a grasp of at least Html and Css to build and style your new theme and also ideally an understanding Php and JS. Here are my top three starters:

There is a lot of documentation availalbe and support forums for you to delve into should you need to.

Good luck and happy creating!!

WordPress Membership Content

Looking at the latest website design and development project which requires a membership login feature to restrict content to only logged in users. This feature is currently being developed on a WordPress prototype which we have built for this project.

This custom feature will enable visitors to view the public facing website but will restrict content and offer a registration page for interested users to sign up and join the group.

This WordPress development is one of our projects that we’re getting our teeth into right now, view our WordPress Website Portfolio for other completed projects that we have recently designed and developed.

Improving WordPress Load Speed

At Adur Design we’ve been working on improving page load speed on our latest WordPress website build. We’re using Sass/Scss to improve the speed that the web pages are styled with smaller, quicker loading files.

Faster page load speed improves our client’s user experience and makes for a more responsive website.

WordPress Starter Themes

The latest custom WordPress website project has called for a starter theme to be used, we’ve had some good success in the past with some flexible themes so we’re going to use underscore for the latest design and development project.

A WordPress starter theme is more of a blank canvas which we then build and code onto to create the look and feel that our client wants. This in turn builds a unique and bespoke website to match and reflect the client’s brand.

We really enjoy designing and building to our client’s brief to get the best possible online solution and create a website with impact!
