The Palms Health & Wellbeing Centre Website Goes Live

The Palms Health & Wellbeing Centre is based in Gorey Co. Wexford. The centre is comprised of rooms for practitioners to rent.

The Palms have operated a website for years where they advertised their rooms and had profile pages for all of their practitioners. As the number of practitioners rose, management of the profile pages became more and more difficult – to the point where it became unmanageable.

We reinvented their website and implemented a directory structure whereby they could define categories and add up new practitioner profiles with structured date easily. The system includes search functionality, an A-Z listing, contact details and a contact form for every practitioner on their profile page. All in all a much more functional and manageable system.

Ballinakill Outdoor Swimming Pool Website Goes Live

Ballinakill is based in Co. Laois and the community there have run an outdoor swimming pool for years. The venture has been very successful and up until this year, all bookings were handled manually over the phone or WhatsApp. As visitor/member numbers and complexity increased, it became more time consuming, error-prone and unworkable.

They required a more automated solution that would enforce their capacity thresholds, whilst being easy to use and informative. We introduced smart coupons – that were emailed to each member after they had successfully signed up for a season ticket. This can be used by the member at checkout to complete their booking without paying.

The system is easy to use by the members, and the administrators who can easily manage bookings. We implemented a booking export tool also which allows them to easily export bookings from the system into CSV format which allows them to easily check in members and guests as they arrive.

The system will email members and guests to confirm their bookings, and will send out automated emails to remind them of their upcoming sessions. It also allows for easy rescheduling and cancelling.

All in all a much more efficient system for the folks running the pool bookings.

Fair Seas Website Goes Live

We’ve been working with the folks at Fair Seas for the last few months as they launched their mission. Fair Seas is an Irish based NGO with the goal to protect, conserve and restore Ireland’s marine environment. It’s a new organisation that didn’t have any identity or online presence.

They required a bespoke WordPress theme developed form the ground up that was tailor made for their needs. We created a beautiful and functional website for them that will allow the guys to spread the good word for years to come. The website is very easy eye-catching but simple. It’s light on text but very clear on message. We created a bespoke blog / news experience that will allow Fair Seas to share powerful content and generate support for their cause. Some of the features on the website include :-

  • Fully customised bespoke WordPress theme
  • Bespoke news section
  • Social media sharing on news articles
  • Search functionality
  • Mailchimp newsletter integration
  • Optimised for mobile devices

We’re very proud of the final result, which you can see here.

WordPress 6 is here!

WordPress 6 was released on May 24th. The release name is “Arturo”, named after Arturo O’Farrill – a Mexican Grammy-wining jazz musician.

What’s New?

The release contains over 500 enhancements and over 400 bug fixes.  Some of the major enhancements are covered below.

Full site editing

This is a feature that has been available on certain themes for a while and the WordPress developers have been slowly working towards integrating it into WordPress core for block based themes. Essentially full site editing allows you to modify your entire site look and feel through the block editor page – rather than going into specific ‘Appearance’ pages for the theme. Useful for those with block based themes.

Switch theme styles easily

This is another theme based enhancement. Theme developers will now be able to create style presets that can be modified through a new style button on the block editor.

Export theme options, templates and styles

This new feature allows you to easily export theme options from one site to another. So let’s say you created beautiful styles and modules in a website – and some of these elements might work on another project – WordPress now allows for easy export and import of these options.

Block editor enhancements

Most releases in the last 2 years featured enhancements to the Gutenberg block editor. Release 6 introduces new blocks such as comments, read more, author biography & avatar. Also introduced in release 6 are enhancements to editor to allow for easier text selection, the ability to lock reusable blocks, and the ability to select multiple blocks in the list view amongst other enhancements.

Accessibility changes

WordPress 6.0 introduces many accessibility improvements that will greatly enhance the experience for those with accessibility needs.

Under the hood improvements

As with every WordPress release, the developers have made enhancements to the WordPress core to make it easy for third party theme and plugin developers to integrate and extend their capabilities of the platform.

Barry Edwards Artist Website Goes Live

Barry Edwards is a Waterford based artist with an extensive portfolio of paintings, drawings, collages & life drawing works. He needed a modern & functional website to help him showcase his talents and work.

We needed to come up with a design in keeping with his style of work – something that would compliment his portfolio and show it off in an artistic yet ‘non-fussy’ way. We’ve uploaded hundreds of paintings & sketches and sorted into galleries based on the category so people can browser categories and explore his work easily. We also included a blog where Barry can post content and news about what he’s up to.

See the result here.

The Greedy Goose is an innovative dining experience in Malahide Co. Dublin. Their menu is not traditional, rather you can choose dishes from 2 separate tasting menu’s.

Like all restaurants, menus will change so the team at the Greedy Goose are fully equipped to manage their content easily and respond to business changes.

WordPress 5.9 was released on January 25th. The release name is “Joséphine”, named after Joséphine Baker – an acclaimed jazz singer.

What’s New?

Following on from the recent trend of WordPress updates, Gutenberg blocks are up front and central in this release. Gutenberg is the advanced editor within WordPress that was launched a couple of years ago and is improving with every release as new features are added. It’s built with blocks of functionality that you can drag and drop within your pages.

Release 5.9 brings improvements to styling block themes (you’ll no longer need to use the Theme Customizer). The navigation block has been enhanced to give you the power to choose menu styles and preferences based on your screen size. There are new typography tools and layout controls to help you control the look and feel of your site easier. Other improvements include revamped list views within the editor and improved gallery blocks.

A new year also means a new WordPress theme and Twenty Twenty-Two is the the first default block theme in the history of WordPress.
