West at Oregon SCI came to us wanting to tweak their existing WordPress website. He liked it for the most part, and it worked, but there were a couple of features he wanted to add, and just do some all around cleanup and organizational work. Here’s what he wanted:
We started with the registration form, which started with moving it over to a common contact form plugin that would allow it to be easily expandable and editable. That, combined with some custom add ons by us makes it now so that when someone uses the registration form, West still gets an email about it, but it also populates a good spreadsheet, adds them to a mail chimp list (if they opt-in), and if they opt in, they’re added automatically to the new interactive map. More on that mapping part — when they’re added, we don’t want to be publicly sharing exactly where these people are located. Instead, we’re randomizing their position by roughly a mile. Good enough for the map, but allows a little bit of privacy. On the map portion, West already had a plugin he’d purchased that wasn’t working really well for him, so we were able to help out in getting that plugin working, get the registration form integration, and style it to match the rest of the website.
Finally, we just did some general cleanup, making the home page cleaner and easier to follow, we brought more prominence to the blog, and really tried to make things more uniform across pages, especially around the header.
That’s a good sign you need to talk with us.
