Project Details

The client wished to have a high degree of flexibility within the WordPress CMS page templates. Inorder to provide flexibility yet remove the need for excessive HTML coding, I made heavy use of WordPress Shortcodes. The Shortcodes allow users to add complex content that would normally require hand coding HTML and CSS with the use of simple shortcodes such as [3_columns].

The video media library also makes use of YouTube and Vimeo API’s allowing users to quickly add a video to the library by providing just the video ID. The WordPress template does the rest, querying YouTube and Vimeo for the video’s Title, Description, Duration, and Thumbnail.
