Front End Description
The client gave me the design and wanted a WordPress theme created from the existing mockup/code. I set the site up to use a lot of excerpts so the owner could control how much content shows up on the home and main category pages, so web site viewers could quickly decide if an article or recipe interested them.
Back End Description
This CMS was created to give the site owner a way to start posting and sharing recipes – and then once they accumulate enough recipes, we are going to go back in and add more advanced WordPress functionality. For now, everything is category driven, and provides an easy way for the owner to create content, and receive content (via contact form, and user contributors). Functionally – this was a very simple site to set up using custom queries to pull all the data into the custom layouts.
Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts
The client wanted a simple way to manage a web site and WordPress has worked really well. Using tags to tag ingredients will make this site easy to search for users in the future.
