Maine Crafts Guild- HTML to WordPress
The Situation

Maine Crafts Guild represents the finest Maine artisans, and promotes their professional members through web presence, craft shows and outreach programs. Although they had a web presence, they needed a CMS (Content Management System) where they could update / add artists’ content, craft shows and such.

Also, the crafts’ images need to be uploaded from time to time. Their member-artists come from various regions and are also varied in their crafts. So a classification for this was required and also portraying it in a better way. Every page had its own story to tell through pictures. So every page needed its own slideshow of images.

The Solution

We built the website on WordPress CMS, with many custom templates for inner pages, like for artist a slideshow of his/her crafts is shown along with region map and other content, for Craft Shows a detailed schedule and related content along with its promotional image.

Member artists can be viewed by selecting region or craft type. On hovering over artists from the list, his/her work is shown in a slideshow. We integrated NextGEN gallery plugin to show slideshow of pictures related to a particular page. We built the theme cross-browser compatible and SEO-optimized, along with widgetised sidebars and footer.
