WordPress Content Management System, Database Import, WordPress Theme Customization
Catalina Kulczar-Marin was moving to New York and changing her passion for photography into a full-time career. As she began preparing for this exciting adventure, Caty realized that her web site wasn’t quite where she’d like it to be. She knew she wanted to enlarge the images in her site’s gallery, add some additional functionality and adjust the overall layout. She also wanted to switch from a Flash based gallery to something that was easily managed while also being more mobile friendly. A tight timeline was needed to get the new site up and running in time to coincide with her big move. She had a limited budget but knew it was time to invest something in her website to take it to the next level.
With this in mind, 1310 Studios installed a WordPress theme that would enable Caty to manage her blog, site pages and photo gallery from a single place. We imported her existing database categories and entries in order to make the transition without losing past posts and user comments. By using an existing theme as a starting point, 1310 Studios was still able to deliver a quality web site within the tight timeline. 1310 Studios customized the site to incorporate the look and feel of her brand. The new site puts her work front and center imaking it the primary focus of the site. As the site went live, we trained Caty on the basics of updating her site and set her loose to blog away.
