I’ve finished two new web sites, and continue with updates on a few more. I am also working on a WordPress plugin to prevent spam-bots from abusing comment forms. That one is a bit more tricky, but useful knowledge.
The two new sites are WordPress-based.
John D Brown Author Site : this is the author’s official site. I found his site when I read his book “Bad Penny”. It is a thriller, with a “Jack Reacher” type character. I enjoyed it, and went to his web site to see if there were other books in a similar vein. While on his web site, I emailed him to suggest a few design changes for his site. And ended up doing a customized rewrite of his site into a ‘responsive’ site that looks good on any device – laptop, phone, desktop, etc. Along the way I increased my WordPress customization expertise, creating changes in a child theme plus adding additional customized functionality. He and I were pleased with the results. And it let him concentrate on writing the next book with the same character as “Bad Penny”.
The Hot Box Grills site is an e-commerce site that sells a nice tailgate/picnic portable grill. Well made and sturdy, and works quite well as a portable grill, according to his satisfied customers. His previous e-commerce site wasn’t working well, and was hard to manage. The new place has a responsive theme, and I am working on his SEO stuff. If you are looking for a great portable BBQ grill for picnics, camping, or sporting events, check it out.
