CTFotografie Website re-design

About this Project

This project required a website re-design from a Joomla based content management system (CMS) to Wordpress, the leading CMS for blogs and enhanced Search Engine Optimization (SEO).  Although the previous website had many great features and included a custom connector to export mailing list registrations to MailChimp.com, it still lacked some functionality and it was a bit difficult for the content manager to get around the editing and publishing workflow.

 

The new design required the following features:

⊰ Responsive design and mobile enabled

⊰ Retina ready for sharp images in mobile devices

⊰ Multiple gallery layouts

⊰ Support for WordPress Multilingual plugin

⊰ Built-in shortcodes

⊰ Password protected galleries

⊰ Typography supported by Google Fonts

This project was completed in 2 months, including exporting and importing content into the new site, resizing images to fit the new framework and performing all tests in various browsers and mobile devices.

The new site has a fresh look with greater emphasis on visual representation of photographic style.  There is a direct connection to Mailchimp to manage subscriptions and promotions.  Also, the various shortcodes allow the site administrator to efficiently and effortlessly create custom WordPress pages with various functions.  A content builder also provides additional flexibility when creating custom pages with no programming experience.
