Built with HTML, CSS, & WordPressSee Live
Forty-Five Degrees is a theme for WordPress. It is a design I purchased from ThemeForest and then developed into a living, breathing WordPress site! The wonderful thing about WordPress is that it lets a client control the content on their website without knowing any HTML. This is because this product is built with a database and the coding language PHP.
Some skills and languages developed in this project include:
- Creating a database and running sites on a local server with MAMP
- Using PHP to dynamically generate content
- Understanding how the WordPress dashboard works
- Custom Field Types and Custom Post Types WordPress Plugins
- WordPress deployment
I really enjoyed this project because it was the first time I saw a site dynamically generate content. When I understood how WordPress could pull certain content and information when called upon, I was wowed by its efficiency, as I felt we had been repeating code prior to this project. Learning how to make a multi-page site this quickly was incredibly empowering!
