Build a WordPress site from the ground up leveraging our expertise in WordPress development and knowledge of WordPress plugins that would allow us to meet the client’s needs on a speedy timetable
JT Engineering was using an aging WordPress website that was no longer meeting their needs in terms displaying the company’s varied set of capabilities and portfolio of work. They were looking to let users discover the types of services they offer while then seeing the projects they’ve completed in those services types. Those services include construction engineering, land development, land surveying, traffic engineering, structural engineering, and water resource engineering. JT Engineering was additionally looking to display their experienced and accomplished set of staff members with the ability to filter members by their field of work as well as a keyword search. Lastly, JT needed the site to list open positions and let applicants apply directly through the site.
We drew upon our deep knowledge of WordPress features and high quality community plugins to meet the client’s needs at a rapid pace.
We excel at combining custom post types, custom fields using Advanced Custom Fields, and content display and filtering using FacetWP. We employed and combined WordPress features and the capabilities of these plugins in several places on the site. We set up services, projects, and staff members as custom post types – each with their own set of custom fields. We used these custom fields to relate projects to services, staff to projects as project leads, and staff to departments. This allowed us to do a variety of more sophisticated programmatic content display and filtering. We were able to display the latest projects for each service type on each service landing page. For each project we were able to display the project lead and pull from the data saved for that staff member. For both the Projects and Staff landing pages we put together a full lists of those content types that could be filtered and searched. Additionally, we build widgets for featured projects and latest projects that would display content appropriate for where the widget was placed.
To meet the need of having the site serve as a place for JT Engineering to list job openings and allow applicants to apply through the site we installed the WP Job Openings plugins which has a powerful and flexible frontend and administrative experience that JT Engineering was very comfortable using.
Producing the necessary custom post types with relevant custom fields streamlined the content creation process for JT Engineering. They can create new projects, tag it with a service and project lead, and it will display in the appropriate formats and locations across the site without any extra administrative work. The ease of access to JT’s offered services and completed projects allows users to experience their level of understanding and qualifications in the engineering field.
