Front End Description

The client gave me the design and wanted a WordPress theme created from the existing mockup/code.

Back End Description

This CMS is pretty straightforward. The client knew exactly what they wanted and already had a lot of content from their previous WordPress blog. We created a custom plugin to display the news (5 most recent posts per every category). The code for the menus (drop down navigation) given to us was several hundred lines long split into 3 files with 20 images. We reduced the menu code to 12 lines of JS, a simple unordered list for the actual menu items, 2 images, and 23 lines of CSS.

Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts

It is always great to take a static web site and turn it into a dynamic site using a content management system.
