Golf Road Warriors

Role: Designer, WordPress Developer
When: Oct-Nov 2011
Tools Used: XHTML/CSS, PHP, WordPress

What: Golf Road Warriors is a website devoted to the adventures of four golf writers as they travel to Scottsdale, Arizona for a one-week trip.

I was responsible for taking the previous look and feel of the site and creating a WordPress theme that resembled it as closely as possible.

The site includes a PHP call for posts in a specific date range, something that I hadn’t run across before.

By creating a filter function and setting a date range, I was able to achieve the desired result. I maintained the site from start to finish and was quick to make any changes when a category went unchecked.

Videos were brought in with JWplayer or YouTube embed code.

This was probably one of the largest-scale sites that I’ve produced to date and completion of the project was extremely rewarding.
