Well we fell victim to a theme scam. I have a client that wanted to use the ProStyler theme (http://prostylertheme.com/) I didn’t have any reviews to go on nor did they offer a free version so I was cautious. Apparently this other site was using it so it must exist. Surely it did exist and was for sale. This website was quick to collect $67 and I was issued a bogus online account that didn’t do anything. I’m sure Paypal will handle this but buyers beware of WordPress Theme scams out there.
It’s an honor to welcome the Women on Wheels (WOW) to S1TE Websites. With a large membership base it was important to create a development environment to test plugins and configurations before rolling changes out to the members. This also came with a fresh responsive design for any device and countless plugin integrations. Welcome ladies. Ride on, we got this.
We fired up another WordPress site for another awesome local track. We went with the new Twenty Fifteen theme because of its impressive responsive design. A fresh new logo was in order too. As more and more people flock to mobile devices more and more clients are asking for this. Also this client wanted all Instagram posts to automatically update his website. Along with all our standard security plugins we added the gallery plugin Envira and the Instagrate to WordPress plugin to accommodate. Hope you like it.
We would like to welcome our new guests to our dev environment. We are creating a public profile, but most interesting is the behind the scenes business functionality required. We’ll be integrating their Google apps and developing custom apps to cut down on their daily routine tasks so they can get back to work.
We just loved the original image. The dirt in the foreground with a blurry rider. Unfortunately the original picture the guy was riding a mountain bike. We do love to cross train but we didn’t want to confuse any newcomers so we converted this to a KX450F. Of course we added more dirt and the lens flare. Hope you like it.
The PitRacer logo has undergone a subtle transformation. The vector graphics needed cleaned up so while we were in there we updated the black double stroke to be an actual stroke and gave it a subtle thickness increase for a bolder look. We also added a race look to the “P” and “R”. If you look closely at the P and R you’ll see a couple supercross 180’s (ok, maybe after a couple brews).
The popular motocross social network PitRacer.com has been revamped this month. The challenge was to completely reload the virtually dead backend application vBulletin and replace it with the popular xenForo backend but make it look exactly the same, retain all users and passwords, post, threads, avatars, messages, basically they needed to keep everything. We acheived this with the flawless mySQL integration scripts and discovered some pretty tight add-ins along the way. Ok, so it doesn’t look exactly the same, just better.
The add-on xenGallery could be a product in itself. It was inexpensive but loaded with style. The default is a pinterest design:
We’re still discovering subtle ways how xenForo is miles ahead of the competition in the forum world. We hope you like the new digs.
Legendary golfer Bob Toski launches he’s junior golf tournament website featuring yet another WordPress backend. The Twenty Fourteen theme is just too good not to use. The default green accents were just a bonus. They’re offering scholarships to a few lucky juniors too. Be sure to check them out at http://toskijuniorgolf.com.
