Boys and Girls Club Dallas

 

This was a(n) really exciting project. Not only did I get to play with FORMS AND MORE FORMS in Gravity Forms, but I also installed Event Espresso, which has a million moving parts. We got it up and running and they registered many for one event and used the forms to accept payment/donations for auction items.

It makes me giddy that they have put this site to use in so many ways. They are really making it work.

 

Greenwood Village

 

Up and live but still in flux. The booking calendar is giving us fits, but I am sure we will work it out.

They need the bookings to be all day but want to be able to specify a time on the calendar for support staff. Therein lies the quandary.

Next on their agenda is a possible multi-site for the different clubs inside the community. All eighteen of them! I find it very exciting!

 

Kevin!

 

One of my first clients when I moved to Ohio, Kevin is a very special person. You can tell when you meet him that he is someone who takes care of people. I feel so good about helping him with his site and hopefully, inspiring him to tell people about who he is and what he can do!

Now everything shows up, and I have a new theme to build on, based on rachelbaker’s bootstrapWP and integrating bootstrap 3.0 with Less and wp_nav_walker.

I have set up a few image sizes, and templates for page, index, single and archive. I have 6 sidebar areas, 1, 2, 3 on homepage, page, post and footer.

I think it’s time for a change! I will miss my little shark, robot and fairy, but it’s time for something new. But what? What will express my current fascination with writing fiction and my practice at being concise? Getting the one right word, image, simple and perfect.

I am considering a one page theme, I know, it’s been done,  but would like to play around with it anyway.

Found this code on wordpress.org:

<?php
get_header();
?>
<div id="container">
<a name="top"></a>
<?php
$args = array(
	'sort_order' => 'ASC',
	'sort_column' => 'menu_order', //post_title
	'hierarchical' => 1,
	'exclude' => '',
	'child_of' => 0,
	'parent' => -1,
	'exclude_tree' => '',
	'number' => '',
	'offset' => 0,
	'post_type' => 'page',
	'post_status' => 'publish'
);
$pages = get_pages($args);
//start loop
foreach ($pages as $page_data) {
    $content = apply_filters('the_content', $page_data->post_content);
    $title = $page_data->post_title;
    $slug = $page_data->post_name;
?>
<div class='<?php echo "$slug" ?>'><a name='<?php echo "$slug" ?>'></a>
        <h2><?php echo "$title" ?></h2>
			<?php echo "$content" ?>
</div>

<?php
}
get_footer();
?>

 

Hope you find your new, too!

 

I really enjoyed doing this site, mainly because I got to learn so much about literature in my new town, Cleveland, while doing it. Huda is a very special writer whose voice was inspiring to me. She has such a commitment not only to her culture and her family, but also to herself. As a mother and a creative, this isn’t easy for me, let alone throwing a demanding and beautiful social system as well.

Her prose is quite perfect and I recommend you visit her site and read! She’s quite wonderful.
