Hi, my name’s Shawn and I’m with Graticle Design, a web design agency.

Today I want to go over a platform that we use called WordPress for all of our client’s websites.

I just want to show you how easy it is to use WordPress and what it looks like for our clients.

Here is an example of one of those websites: iklugg.com

This website is a blog and the owner posts recipes, diy articles, and general blog posts. She has a customized backend that we’ve developed for her to make it extremely easy to add content to this website. This is all without being technical and relying on someone just to make a blog post.

So if we login to her website, we are now in WordPress. This is the view that she sees while managing her blog.

As you can see, we have the recipe section, and if you click on it, you’ll notice that all of her recipes are kept and organized here.

If we click on the Mexican Black Bean and Corn Salad recipe, you can see that she adds content and has numerous images.

It’s very easy to add an image, she can just click on Add Media and then can drag and drop an image to be placed in the blog post.

The front-end or public facing side of the website automatically resizes the image to make it fit to the page. It also automatically scales it down so the image is lightweight.

She also has a featured image and categories that she can add her recipe post to. She has Time Servings and Level option for the time is takes to cook this recipe, how many servings, and the difficulty of cooking it. There is also the Ingredient List that she can add, reorder, and remove from. There is also an Optional Garnishes for the recipe as well.

Finally she has a Directions area where she can list out the directions for cooking.

WordPress then compiles all of this content, and put the page together automatically. When she’s finished, she hits the Update button and everything else is taken care of.

As you can see, it’s extremely easy to edit a website on WordPress. We’ve obviously heavily customized her website, and that’s typically what we do for all of our client’s websites to make it even easier to manage.

If you have any questions or would like us to design and develop a WordPress website for you, you can go to graticle.com/contact or you can give us a call at (360) 450-3711 and we’ll help you out.

I really can’t fully express how great my experience was working with Shawn and Graticle. I work for a non-profit and our website had fallen into disrepair–we had even lost ownership of our domain name! But Shawn went above and beyond and walked me through the process of getting our domain name back, along with the complete design of the new site. I absolutely LOVED that he developed videos that walked us through the process of managing the website–from logging in, to editing photos, to changing content–he covered all the bases we needed to take care of our new site. This was particularly appreciated because, as a non-profit, we will likely be moving through web managers over the years and having these videos to pass on to each new manager will be an incredible relief, and will (hopefully) help us avoid the trap we fell into with our last site. He is the most responsible businessman I’ve ever worked with, he was extremely prompt in his replies to emails, and I never felt like he left us hanging or confused at any step along the way. I recommend his services with full marks! You won’t regret it!
