This site is a custom forum where people can ask funeral related questions or share funeral related stories.
Front End Description
We had created the initial theme back in 2013 and it was time for a responsive refresh. The client wanted to use a masonry layout on the home page like Pinterest to easily allow readers to read through the most recent posts/forum topics.We put together the basic look and feel and did everything in Bootstrap to make it responsive.
Back End Description
There are a few custom queries which combine posts & topics so they all flow together on the home page. We also have used the WordPress Customizer API to build out the admin options to allow the client to easily customize options in the header and on the home page.
Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts
The Bootstrap documentation is invaluable and makes putting together a site easy for developers and front end users!
