Project Overview

Jay Reatard's official site where he promotes his music, fan club, etc.

Front End Description

The client had the layout and design in place when they contacted me. I provided some CSS/XHTML cleanup (browser debugging), a few modifications, and a new store (category template) which controlled the Store part of the site.

Back End Description

The client needed an easy way to add in new records to the store section without touching any code in the templates. I created some custom fields on the front end of the post screen and then some backend custom logic to display the records automatically as they were released with a thumbnail of the album, a title (link to the main info page, a buy button, and an album description).

Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts

Making something easy to use modify always makes the client happy!
