Visit Site

My client for this project approached me with the desire to upgrade their preexisting blog with a new theme and design. What they wanted was a more modern style, and the ability to easily search for different blog posts based on keywords or by category. In addition, they wanted to maintain the original look of the header and footer of their site. During the initial concept discussions the client offered several ideas for which new theme to use, and we decided on using the GridLove theme.

In order to ensure their current blog remained live while I built the new site, I created a staging environment for use during production. After installing GridLove, importing its demo content, and creating a child theme, I began to make the custom modifications to the theme, which required new page templates, CSS, and Javascript to integrate the search function. Once the site was complete, I migrated everything to the live domain, which is hosted on WPEngine. Follow up work included integrating the subscriber form with MailChimp, as well as adding Google Analytics.
