Ipswich River Watershed Association

A new look for the Ipswich River Watershed Association. The team there was already using Wordpress with success so I designed and developed a new theme for them to update the presentation of key info, calls to action, their blogs and numerous pages of content.

This new theme is responsive which is standard operating procedure at GWD. It being responsive just means that the site adapts the layout and everything works regardless of whether you are on a phone, tablet, laptop or desktop.

Together we revamped the information architecture, organizing the information to make the site easier to navigate and use.

Another standard operating procedure here is to install best of breed plugins. There are thousands of plugins out there and many are buggy, bloated and unreliable. Every website I make benefits from top notch plugins for: security, backup, caching, forms, shortcodes, lossless image compression etc. Of these the most crucial plugins are for security and backup. There are many, many attacks on Wordpress sites these days (because of it's popularity) and you can't be too careful.

Kristal Pooler & Associates

The main challenge on this project was integrating MLS listings into this real estate web site. We spent a lot of time upfront researching wordpress plugins and other solutions before selecting IDX Broker as a service. Using their premium wordpress plugin we were able to include basic and advanced MLS searches with lead generation, by-town and by-category live listings results pages and mapped listings as well as other features.

The website is responsive which should hopefully help house hunters touring the area and we've tried hard to optimize the content so that it will rank highly against the competition.

The clients are able to log in to the backend of the website and upload new listings, create image slideshows and edit pages and blog posts.

national protective systems website

National Protective Systems

The primary goal of the National Protective Systems website is clearly communicate the general nature of their business. We hired an illustrator to produce custom icons as well as an infographic which is animated on the homepage. I customized a premium Wordpress theme from a trusted theme vendor, creating a custom presentation layer for the client based on a robust theme framework featuring many page layout options, shortcodes and other useful features. I selected plugins from my current "best-of" list of tried-and-true plugins for security, backup, usability, seo, analytics etc. The website has plenty of scope for expansion should the client choose to add more content. It is also, being a Wordpress website, one that the client can log into and edit/add/delete elements of by himself.

Reservation Calendar month view

Reservation Calendar modal window

Shared Property Reservation Calendar

I built this web site for a family with a jointly owned beach house. Family members needed to be able to mark a calendar with their usage and be able to reference it 24/7.

Several years ago I built functional calendar using phpeventcalendar as a foundation and hacking it a bit to suit the client's specific needs.

In July 2012 I updated the code a bit, added a bunch of custom features and skinned it with the awesome Bootstrap from Twitter. It's responsive so adjusts to a list view if you access it on a small enough device screen.

I have a long list of features I'd like to add and I'd love to turn it into a Wordpress plugin as I spent years looking for something just like it and never found a solution beyond hacking together my own solution. One for the todo list.

Update! If you found this post because you are searching for a similar solution please check out I finally made it happen in 2019 and it's in use with multiple clients and available to anyone who needs it.
