Screen shot of the Life Content siteOnce in a while a project comes along that makes you stop and think about how you’ve been doing things for a while. This project is like that. There’s nothing really revolutionary about it – a typical webzine created with WordPress and a few plugins – but it did provide some interesting opportunities to dive deeper into the inner workings of using WordPress as a CMS. The fantastic (and incredibly flexible) visual design was created by Mark at Reeves Design House. This was a truly collaborative effort where we both explored that fun question “what if we did it like this” from start to finish. I should also give thanks for a receptive client who was willing to let us explore a bit while we tried to figure things out as we went along. Such a rare and exciting environment for any designer/developer.Here are a few of the WordPress plugins we’re using: Ad-minister, Advanced Search, Category Icons, and cforms II.Take a look at the Life Content site.
