CHALLENGES

I maintain the web hosting, security, and maintenance. I designed the WordPress website using Divi and helped write on-page content.

The client requested several different ways to manage her community: enabling WordPress user registration, requiring WordPress registration for the community forum and to submit events to the community calendar, and through her AWeber email list.

SOLUTIONS

  • I enabled native WordPress user registration on the client’s site.
  • We added a line of text to say that registration would register the user for the AWeber email marketing list.
  • We required user registration for access to the forum, which I installed and set up using BBPress.
  • We also required user registration in order for users to submit events using the premium Community Events extension of the WordPress plugin The Events Calendar.
  • The client and I are also working together to configure a mobile app for the site.

Testimonial

“Valarie did such a phenomenal job. She took my budget and vision and made it all work into a beautiful website that does exactly what I want it to do. Communication about what I wanted and needed was easy and she always understood what I was trying to go for and accomplish. I’m very happy and excited about my website, and look forward to working with Valarie on future projects as well.”
