Last fall, we were approached by the Tyrolian Village Homeowners Association, in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, to update their web site with a fresh design, based on WordPress. The site would contain private content that only certain tiers of logged-in users would be able to see. They wanted a photo gallery to showcase the great photographic opportunities that nature provides this beautiful area, and an events calendar.
We nearly nailed it on the first set of comps, but they preferred tans, beiges and oranges rather than muted gray hues. The site officially launched on May 18, although it is still a work in progress.
Some of the plugins used on the site include Ultimate Member, Gravity Forms, User Role Editor, PHP Code for Posts, Advanced Custom Fields, and Obfuscate Email, along with must-haves Sucuri Scanner, WordFence, WP-Filemanager and WP-Filebase.
Joni Mueller has been designing web sites for hire since 2003, when she first blew up her web host’s server by insisting on running Greymatter. Since then, Joni has designed for Blogger and Movable Type, TextPattern, WordPress and CMS Made Simple. She lives with her cat and shoe collection in a bucolic old section of Houston called Idylwood. For some strange reason, Joni likes to refer to herself in the third person. When she’s not working on web design, she’s ordering lawyers around. And blogging about it. Or both.
