Rebecca McBride found herself in an all-too-common situation. As a writer, editor, and researcher located in Old Chatham, her website was looking dated.
Rebecca came to us with two main goals – to update the look of her site, and to integrate a content management system (CMS) that would allow her to make her own changes. Rebecca’s husband created his website on WordPress and she was interested in going that route too.
WordPress is a free, web-based CMS. In its most basic application, users select a theme from the WordPress library and input their content to create a simple website. WordPress was originally conceived as blogging software, but customizable options now make it full-featured enough to power other types of website.
After reviewing the free themes that WordPress offers, we determined that none was exactly what she needed. We decided to create a custom WordPress theme that would give her the unique look she desired with the CMS capabilities that were required.
Rebecca’s website has seven pages – Home, About, Contact, Projects, Resume, Testimonials and Book, a blog page about her new book, Traveling Between the Lines. WordPress has the capability to allow readers to leave comments and ask questions, although the feature isn’t currently being used. Rebecca can change content, headings, style and order on her own. She can even create her own pages and links.
