Considering WordPress?

WordPress LogoAre you having trouble deciding if WordPress will be the right solution for your next amazing site, or do you have a boss or client who’s refusing to accept WordPress as a viable platform? Sara Rosso gave a great intro to the WordPress Ecosystem at this year’s WordCamp San Francisco. She covers some of the heavy-hitters using WordPress, how big of an audience some of them are reaching, and why they decided to make the switch (if they did move from another platform), as well as how the overall community works.

New Site Completed – Mitchell Hébert

Mitchell HébertWe just completed a site for Mitchell Hébert, a talented actor, director and teacher who wanted his existing site upgraded, yet wanted to be able to do his own site edits at the same time.  The answer?  A beautiful site based on the WordPress platform once again.  In this case, we concentrated on Mitchell’s gallery, which might be small at the moment, but he plans on growing quickly – it really turned out beautifully – worth checking out if you are considering a site for similar purposes!

New Site Completed – Dogs On Call, Inc.

Dogs On Call, Inc.We just completed a site for a wonderful non-profit organization called Dogs On Call, Inc. – a program whereby dogs are brought to hospitals and more recently student dorms to help relieve stress and anxiety.  It has been working wonders and we are glad to be a part of it by redesigning their site for them.  This particular site has a WordPress platform with a special “slider” on the home page that previews featured posts.  It works beautifully.

We also designed and installed a custom “Members Only” PHP forum for them and will be doing their ongoing maintenance as well.

New Client – Sauk Creek Alpacas

Sauk Creek AlpacasHansen Web Design is proud to announce our latest client – Lynne of Sauk Creek Alpacas out of Oregon Wisconsin.  We will be designing a new site from scratch for Lynne utilizing WordPress so that Lynne will be able to maintain the site in the future on her own.

WordPress offers a ton of functionality and acts as a mini-content management system (CMS) in this case.  We will also be embedding the code for her sales site so that it is incorporated directly into her new site – allowing visitors to have everything available to them from one location.
