Responsive Holiday Cottage Theme

We have been working with Camber Holiday Cottages for many years camberholidaycottages.co.uk

Their last website was built using WordPress but before responsive websites were mainstream so an upgrade was on the cards.

They loved their original design so just required the site to be redeveloped with a responsive framework. We also made use of the new theme customisation options in WordPress and took on board quite a few new features that the client asked us to build into the new design for them including slideshow thumbnails, responsive columns on archive pages, automatic display of cottages on the home page and tabbed content on property pages.

Responsive Delicatessen Website

Here’s a website we put together for the Rye Deli ryedeli.co.uk

They wanted a way to show the world what they sold with photos and chalk boards.

We setup a host of custom post templates which allowed them to manage their content easily from within the standard WordPress content management system.

Budget Responsive Web Design

Here’s another example of a bespoke, responsive, WordPress website that won’t break the bank. This one template WordPress theme uses Zurb’s Foundation framework and all the features of WordPress to make the content management system as easy to use as possible.

Take a look at the site http://ryechimneysweep.co.uk

 

Responsive Holiday Website

“h.o.f.n.a.r. means court jester in Dutch” … so says Daniel Janes, the man behind this holiday company with a difference. Daniel organises actioned packed group holidays for 20-30 somethings; be it snowboarding, surfing, mountain biking, power boating or another thrill seeking activity, you can be sure Daniel has been there, done it!

Daniel asked us to re-design his existing www.hofnar.com site so that it would be more mobile friendly so we introduced him to the concept of responsive websites and he was sold.

As the existing design (by Rye designer Tommy Rocket) was still current, the site just needed redeveloping to make use of Zurb’s responsive framework, Foundation.

Now Daniel is happy that the content he publishes will be displayed to the best ability on all modern devices without him have to worry too much about it!

Responsive Videos

Here’s a website we’ve just completed for the Queen of Horror Festival in Hastings, www.pittofhorror.com.

Aside from being completely responsive, working on multiple devices and screen sizes, one of the features of this site that we like is the video on the homepage.

Zurb Foundation create a lovely wrapper for Vimeo and YouTube videos to make them responsive (they stretch and shrink to fit the size of the screen being used) whilst WordPress has a great feature that auto-embeds videos by just pasting the video link into the post or page.

We have combined these two features with a simple bit of PHP that adds the responsive wrapper to the auto-embedded videos. If you want to use it in your own WordPress theme, just add this code to your functions.php file in your theme …

add_filter(’embed_oembed_html’, ’embed_flex_video’, 99, 4);
function embed_flex_video($html, $url, $attr, $post_id) {
return ‘<div class=”flex-video”>’ . $html . ‘</div>’;
}
