Custom WordPress Theme – Photography

custom WordPress Theme Photography

WordPress Photography Website

A graphic designer hired me to custom code a WordPress theme for a photographers website. The purpose of the website was to showcase galleries of black and white photography.

This project was in need of a website redesign. Not so much because of how it looked, but because it was a static HTML website that had grown too large to manage. We rebuilt the site, converting the static HTML to WordPress. We merged his blog from another WordPress website on different domain into the new website, migrating it from another server.

With any website redesign, planning appropriately is important so

  1. There is now downtime while the site is being rebuilt
  2. There is no disruption in how the site is indexed in search engines due to the changes from old URLs to new URLs.

We rebuilt the website, categorizing thousands of photos in to galleries, displaying them in filmstrip slideshows.

Custom Website Development with WordPress included:

  • Addressed WordPress security by hardening the installation
  • Set up automated off site backups for disaster recovery
  • Converted the website design from .psd to a WordPress theme
  • Rebuilt the HTML pages in WordPress
  • Integrated a filmstrip gallery plugin to showcase photography
  • WordPress blog migration from another domain
  • Migrated WordPress from a different host
