Style Blog – Dakota Chic
- Redesign using existing theme
- Genesis Framework
- Custom page template
- jQuery search function
- Social media buttons
- Instagram feed
Client wanted a newer, more modern look for her already existing WordPress blog. Without changing the theme, I modified the layout of the site using a combination of custom page templates and CSS. I created a new home page which displays the newest post prominently at the top of the page, followed by a stylized selection of older posts below. I also created new pages for each category of posts, using a grid layout. I also added the client’s Instagram feed to the bottom of these new pages.
In addition to the design changes, I added a search function to the menu using a combination of HTML, CSS, and jQuery. I also added fixed social media buttons to the side of the site, and performed other minor design tweaks on both desktop and mobile to clean up the look.
