FileMaker API WordPress Plugin

We’ve been commissioned by a Kent based digital media agency to develop a new WordPress plugin that synchronises data from a FileMaker database server API to a chosen WordPress custom post type.

The finished plugin has a custom settings panel that allows the WordPress administrator to …

  • Configure the FileMaker server and authentication details
  • Choose one or more FileMaker layouts
  • Choose which Custom Post Type in which to import the data
  • Choose FileMaker layout fields for Post Title, Featured Image, Post Content, Post Excerpt, Tags, Categories and any other Custom Taxonomy
  • Use shortcodes to display the data
  • Store portal data as serialised meta data
  • Import images and files into the media library and attach them to the relevant post

There are plans to further develop the plugin to be able to import different layouts to different custom post types.

JUEL Website

It has been a great pleasure to work with JUEL Accessories to develop their new web site

Those of you from Rye and Battle will recognise this luxury brand; a boutique shop full to the brim with beautiful things.

JUEL required us to develop a web site that reflected their shop’s alluring style whilst still allowing the owners to keep the site up-to-date, managing its content with ease.

The end result was a WordPress site with a bespoke, multi-templated theme which uses WordPress’ built-in Category Cloud widget on the home page to show off all their luxury brand and product showcases. The theme also makes use of featured images and multiple custom menus.
