The Bloomfield Development Corporation is a community group focused on supporting, promoting and enhancing the residents of and businesses in Bloomfield neighborhood in Pittsburgh, PA. Their previous website was constructed using a hosting company site builder by a previous staff member.
From a user perspective, the website was not responsive, hard to navigate and had scant and, at times, opposing information. From a business standpoint, the site did not properly display the group’s logo and did not incorporate any coherent color scheme or branding. For all of these reasons, it was not meeting the goal and needs of the organization.
The new site includes a custom theme based on _s starter theme from Automattic and incorporates Bootstrap for responsiveness. The new site allows them to utilize built-in WordPress functionality for blogging, as well as taking advantage of the CMS capabilities so staff members do not have to have extensive tech experience to be able to add new content and maintain the site.
Theme: custom theme based on _s and Bootstrap
Plugins: Gravity Forms with MailChimp & PayPal addons, Custom Post Widget, TablePress, The Events Calendar, Simple Social Icons, Chamber Dashboard Business Directory
