Visit the new web site for Jill Fleming, who specializes in helping people of all ages live in their bodies with the highest level of mobility, efficiency and pleasure. Soon, the site will have an automated way to schedule appointments with Jill, for now it has information about Jill’s background, her yoga for teens class in Great Barrington, MA, and a contact form. A random testimonial appears on the Home page of Jill Fleming Fitness.
We are pleased to announce that the web site for the Empire Theatre in Block Island has been launched, along with a facebook page. This site is mobile responsive and was built on the WordPress platform using a StudioPress theme.
The site will serve as the base of an online campaign the owner plans to start on July 1st using Kickstarter to help raise the necessary funds to convert the theatre to digital projection.
It’s either that or close the theatre, as changing industry standards have practically made 35mm film projection obsolete.
The Empire Theatre is a summer institution on Block Island. Seeing a movie there is like stepping back into time. I’m especially happy to have a part in the efforts to keep the Empire Theatre open.
I’m pleased to announce the Zanesville Community Theatre‘s web site has been completely redesigned! It’s now mobile responsive which means you can easily order tickets and check out dates for auditions and shows, all from your phone. It’s also easier to navigate. Other features of the new site are: There is now new content, previously only available in print. Actors can use the rehearsal calendar on the site. Audiences can use the event calendar to see what shows are playing and order tickets from their desktop, phone, or by calling 740-455-6487 to reserve. Audition and rehearsal policies on-line. Box Office and Group Sales policies on-line. An easily accessible section of Theatre Resources is now on the site. You can learn about ZCT’s history, now in it’s 50th year, and about ZCT’s community outreach. Sign-up for the e-mail list on the site and view photo galleries of current and past shows (coming soon).
I’m happy to announce the launch of a new site for the Bushnell-Sage Library in Sheffield, MA.
I wanted to make this public library site an entry point or nerve center of information. Information about what’s happening – events and programs – at the library, links to the catalogs, how to renew books online, access to downloading e-books from the digital catalog, and also access to all the information on databases for research and elearning purposes. Integrating links to the online catalog and digital catalog and to databases available to patrons makes the site a portal.
The site contains helpful tips in the how do I section and a what’s new section showcasing the newest books, dvds, and other materials in the library.
By using WordPress as a content management system, I was able to set up the site ensuring it would easily be kept up to date and that it could grow and respond to what’s happening in the library.
I was happy to be asked to update the johnnycake books web site which I had originally set up using Zen Cart. It’s now a WordPress site with a clean, elegant, powerful, unfettered, and uncluttered design.
It’s got a section of the home page specifically to integrate the site with social media: a link to the johnnycake books facebook page, like us; a link to twitter, follow us; a link to pinterest, pin us, and a link to google plus, circle us.
Check out the new johnnycake books site and if in the area, the johnnycake books store front is a great place for browsing and buying rare and collectible books.
The Home page has upcoming events and also a section that can be easily updated at the school for weather closings and special announcements. Their newsletters are accessible and can be read on the site, and a password protected section for parents is in the works.
The site is another great WordPress site, made by w3sights! Please visit the new Mountain Laurel Waldorf School site.
the music cellar in Millerton, NY is an underground music school and rehearsal space, with the mission to provide musical skills to all interested, despite financial status and…. they have a brand new web site by w3sights.
One of the comments on facebook after the site was launched was – “hey, great site! snappy and clean!”
It’s a WordPress site and is easy to update! Check out the music cellar’s site, listen to some music, and if you’re in or around Millerton, have a lesson.
Author Tom Shachtman wanted to improve his web site, pictured below, and I was happy to work with him to do so! And I am especially happy to say his new site is now online at tomshachtman.com, pictured to the right.
Tom’s new site is another WordPress site by w3sights using a mobile responsive theme from StudioPress. So, go ahead and look at Tom’s site in any browser, on your iPad, or iPhone and see how the site responds to whatever size screen you are viewing it on.
One problem I identified immediately with Tom’s old site was that the pages expanded to the entire width of the screen, making the text very hard to read on large screens because the line length was so long. Line length, or the number of words per line, is just one factor contributing to readability. Contrast, line height, margins, and letter spacing are others. Improving the readability of Tom’s site was one of my goals in this redesign project.
Some features I added to the site are: each of Tom’s books have BUY THE BOOK links to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Indiebound, as well as ADD TO SHELF links to that book on Goodreads, Shelfari, and Library Thing. A new section called Extras contains an NPR interview with Tom about Rumspringa, the prologue to another book and more for those who can devote more time or are very interested in a particular subject.
