My VanCity

My VanCity on various devices.2
MyVanCity - old in 2016 needed a major redesign to freshen the look and add more functionality to this local magazine site.

This project marked the first time we utilized the blocks in the new Gutenberg page builder, part of WordPress Version 5.0. Blocks were created for the home page in 1, 2, and 3 feature post rows, finishing with a row for an Instagram carousel. The improved sidebar displays recent posts with better formatting and feature images. We upgraded the Authors page with better avatars and links.

We also provided consultations regarding taxonomy and workflow efficiencies.

Tasks: Design, development, tutoring, maintenance.     View Site

I love my new updated look and it is a big hit with our readers . Within the first week of launching the new our site visits were up almost 5%. Page views are up and the bounce rate is down!

The new look of is everything I asked for and I love how it looks. The new design gives the website both a classic and current look that will serve me well into the future.

I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done to create the new website and making my WordPress easier to use. You have really upped our game with this new look!
