Animal Adoption Website

The South Bedfordshire branch of the RSPCA is an independent animal welfare charity. They already had a website which was established in 2002 and had undergone a few redesigns over the years but it needed to be updated to take advantage of responsive web design techniques. It’s a popular site with about 3,000 visitors/month.

The old website also had no way for the stakeholders to update content on the website themselves. This meant information was frequently out-of-date, there was however a rudimentary method for updating the animals that were available for adoption.

The redesign and transfer into WordPress took around 2 weeks to complete. There wasn’t a particularly large amount of content to transfer across but it did need need restructuring to make this information easier to locate.

A Custom Post Type was built to facilitate the adding and categorisation of new animals for adoption. New image sizes were added to automatically create a range of images for use in the template when an image is uploaded through the WordPress media library.

A custom function was built onto the GravityForms plugin pre_render hook to make their adoption enquiry form more intuitive by dynamically replacing checkboxes with animal images.

This project is an ongoing one, as part of my volunteering role as a cat fosterer for the branch. Future additions include a better donation/sponsorship process, automated new animal email alerts and training to key staff within the branch on using and updating the blog and new animals.

A WordPress informational website for a vintage toy collector to promote his toys and eBay outlet. Designs were supplied to me in PDF format.

A custom post type was created for the toys with taxonomy archives and singular templates along with some custom fields using ACF

The Bootstrap framework was dropped for this project in favour of the Skeleton CSS framework which is much lighter and has less utility as the design was bespoke supplied by Essense Design

Site load times are about 360ms and Pingdom scores a grade A using Varnish, Memcached and Nginx for advanced caching to speed up site load times.
