canvas-design-hacks

It’s a common story.

You create a website that you’re proud of and fill it with great content, but the design vision in your head doesn’t match what’s on the screen. You launched the site using a free theme and decide you need a premium theme and stand out from the crowd. You install such a theme and for a little while you’re happy.

But a few weeks go by and you begin to notice that other websites are of course using that exact same theme. This isn’t what you wanted — you wanted to be truly unique. So you go and find a new premium theme. You’re happy until once again you start finding websites using that theme and the cycle repeats itself.

Case Study: Developing the Cornforth Wilderness Photography Website

August 13, 2013 - 5 Comments

Merrill Mayer runs a Seattle based website development company called Kool Kat Web Designs. In this guest post she writes of the recent work conducted for a photographer – innovatively using WooCommerce to help sell his photos.

Jon Cornforth had a dated website that did little to showcase his photography or his exciting tours. He had a separate WordPress blog so he was familiar with using WordPress. When we discussed putting the entire new website on WordPress, along with using WooCommerce for sales of his photographic prints, Jon was very enthusiastic.

August 12, 2013 - 9 Comments

This Customer Happiness Report marks a significant turning point for us. Drawing a line in the sand, I’ve dubbed it The Triumphant Return of the Ninja!

Before we get into the stats though, here’s a quick recap of the month’s happenings. We started out July with a memorable theme named just that, Memorable. We also had a big birthday bash after turning 5 years old, talked how distributed teams are an advantage, and chatted with Brian Krogsgard and how he manages client websites.  We inspired change for Mandela Day, gave a quick overview of running WordPress on Nginx, and even released a free icon set for education sites. Turning gears back to releases, we put out our site maintenance plugin called See You Later, a hot summer selection of WooCommerce extensions, and social reviews for WooCommerce thanks to YOTPO,  Finally we wrapped up the month with WP Migrate DB Pro, Ecommerce stats, trends and tips, and two case studies on Animal Onesies & BobWP Online Classes.

Case study: Animal Onesies

July 26, 2013 - 10 Comments

A great case study by Australian Mike Langford on how he quit IT consulting to become a ‘Tigger Trainer’ (as he defines himself in his email signature) selling animal onesies on a WooCommerce powered website.

Okay blogging is a long way from generic project management of large CRM implementations, but the reality is that I have built several websites from scratch using PHP / MySQL, including a couple with shopping carts, so I should have known better. I also now realise how many weeks of my life I could have got back!
