Content Management System

See all projects

WordPress is our content management system of choice. We use the WordPress platform because it is Open Source, well built, and has an extensive community of fellow developers and users.

We setup our websites so that you can login and manage your content yourself. You can add a new page, or change the wording on a page, or blog and communicate via social media. It’s point and click, much like writing an email. It’s that easy!

Hort Education

We migrated the Hort Education site from their old, difficult to use CMS to an integrated WordPress network. This allow them to feature content published on any of the other sites on that WordPress network, keeping the home page content fresh. We did a quick design update on this site, largely keeping the original design intact and simply updating it to be fully responsive and display across all devices.

Artinas Jewellery

With Artinas Jewellery, we designed and built their site to deal with a large inventory of products and the challenges that grow from managing such a database. When they decided to migrate to an e-commerce option Artinas Jewellery came to us for a redesign and development. We took advantage of their large inventory and were able to import their existing data into WooCommerce while adding features like online and in store Gift Cards along the way. With site wide HTTPS their customer’s data is secure, and Payfirma integration handles payment processing.
