EyeItalia

EyeItalia

We inherited this site from a seasoned Zen Cart pro who is retiring from the business. Since taking over maintenance of the site we’ve made the following changes:

  • Upgraded the site to the latest version of Zen Cart & WordPress
  • Replace the top level menu with one that has been updated to work with the current version of Zen Cart
  • Install a Facebook app which integrates store products directly on her Facebook page to ensure that her Facebook sales are directed to her main store versus a separate Facebook store.
  • Replaced the checkout module with the latest version of COWOA

Future plans for the site include the complete integration of the store with WordPress (addition of cart widgets in WordPress and WordPress widgets displayed in the store). We have already tapped our talented  friends at So Vivid Graphics and their word will be prominently featured as part of the integration project.

Table Leg World

We inherited this site from a seasoned Zen Cart pro who is retiring from the business. There were errors from the checkout system and the top menu included a javascript which had some embedded code which caused issues with secure links. Since taking over maintenance of the site we’ve made the following changes:

  • Upgraded the site to the latest version of Zen Cart
  • Added a new jquery slideshow
  • Replace the top level menu with one that has been updated to work with the current version of Zen Cart
  • Add a tabbed interface to the product pages to make the product pages easier to read/navigate
  • Creation of a Facebook and Twitter presence and the inclusion of links to the newly created social media pages
  • Replaced the checkout module with the latest version of COWOA

Future plans for the site include the implementation of a custom media manager module to manage videos, PDFs and other non-image files.

Your Plate or Mine

Your Plate or Mine

This site is a personal chef site. The client came to us to ask for our help to finish a site created by another web designer. The site created by the previous designer consisted of static pages, and not much more. The site also lacked any type of structured site navigation, did not tie her site effectively to her Facebook page or her reviews on Yelp.com, and it didn’t include important features the client wanted including:

  • Mailing list management
  • Newsletters
  • Sales of services and gift certificates
  • Client invoicing/billing
  • Image management features

In re-constructing the site, a CMS solution was selected to replace the previous designer’s static HTML solutions. Much of the textual content, graphics and basic color scheme of the previous site were retained/reused. The improved site features a unified structured site navigation, a fresher look, and an upgraded site backend.

Site includes a fully functional database driven blog/CMS solution and a fully functional database driven gallery solution. The site also includes dynamic backend administration tools for easy management of site content, products, customers, images and mailing list/newsletter management .

Update 02/14/2013: Site was given a full facelift and the e-commerce plugin was replaced with a better e-commerce plugin. Here’s a screenshot of the original site we created: Your Plate or Mine Old Site
