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.

I was delighted to receive such great comments from my clients when asking for references. I mean Wow! I enjoy so much making things work for people and enjoy getting recognized, too!

Christina is outstanding to work with.  Her technical competency was first rate.  Our website is quite complex, and real estate was a new line of business for her.  When I’d ask for new features that she wasn’t familiar with, Christina did her homework and came back with perfect solutions.

Christina’s attention to detail was exemplary.  She not only made sure the site worked properly, she also has a good eye for presentation.  Her work was always performed in a timely manner, and within budget.

My background is I.T.  I retired from EDS, now acquired by HP, beginning my career as a programmer, and then had as many as 2,000 systems engineers working in my organization, so her work is very familiar.

My summary statement for Christina is: She would be a sharp, cheerful addition to your team.  I’d take her to any client.  She would find a way to solve their problems and leave them with a smile on their faces!

I have worked with Christina in the past.  Just this past year, she set up a web site and marketing materials (business cards, letterhead, etc.) for my law firm, and did a tremendous job.  The work she did was top notch, on time, and extremely professional.  She provided me a very clear budget up front, and never strayed from it.  And, her follow up on the finished product was excellent.  I could not be more pleased with the services she provided me and my firm.

What a great site to build, what a great family to do it for. The Cloutmans, in Taos, NM, are the most artistic family I have met, their motto, ART ON! is really a way of life. They sell supplies to weavers, but have a huge amount of art for sale. And it’s really cool one of a kind awesomeness!

We used a Facebook friendly shopping cart, ecwid, WordPress and made the process of social media and the shop as stream lined as possible. You can shop in Facebook How cool is that?

Now they can spend more time making beautiful things! ART ON!
