This is my first WordPress site. I received the design for this fictional marketing company through my Skillcrush WordPress class. I went through all the typical install steps, from copying over the client’s “live” site to local, implementing their design request, pushing to a staging site, and going live; to making subsequent edits and adding features, pushing to staging, and going live again. The install process can be a tedious one, but it is thorough and rewarding. This site isn't completely responsive yet, as it's just a demo.
Some skills I leveraged in this project include: creating a child theme, modifying the wp_query, creating custom pages (the post archives, 404, and About), building custom post types (for the Case Studies), working with the Advanced Custom Fields plugin (to simplify adding in new Case Studies), building a custom contact form, and cusomizing some social plugins like the Twitter module, newsletter signup, & social scharing buttons.
