I started describing some of the steps I took recently whil eredesigning my wife’s website. She’s a professional athlete and a personal trainer. We needed a clean. modern design with a reliable eCommerce solution. To get this far, I paired up the Divi theme with WooCommerce. The process was quite simple and I was able to get the launch done quickly. Everything looked and wored pretty well, but a couple things were left to iron out. One of them was the checkout process.
Yesterday I was discussing my experiences with relaunching my wife’s personal training and figure competition website, ankhjii.com. In that post I was talking about the decisions I made on relaunch and selecting WooCommerce for our eCommerce solution. Like I discussed in that post, I’m normally a roll your own solution kind of guy. I like to code my own stuff or use minimal plugins with my own adaptation. That’s an old mindset, back 5 or 6 years ago, the WordPress ecosystem wasn’t nearly what it was today. It was difficult to find a plugin that would do what I want and even harder to find a quality theme. Times have changed, here’s my theme selection story.
Not a lot of opportunity to post over here on VoodooPress lately. I did finally graduate with my Master’s last week, that was a big piece of what was keeping me from doing anything WordPressy for the past three years. That’s not to say I’ve been completely absent, after all, I have many websites to run! I just haven’t been able to post about it.
