Dog’s Best Life is an online magazine/blog for dog lovers.
Dog’s Best Life’s owner, Sara Hansen, found herself with a commercial WordPress theme that had some serious problems.There was no obvious way to edit some basic elements of the theme, plus it was completely broken in Firefox.
After contacting the theme provider together and not getting much assistance, I met with Sara and we settled on a direction: start with the basic look of the commercial site, but make it better. And make it work properly in all major browsers.
We began with the original design and added enhancements of our own, and created a highly functional theme that makes it easy for Sara to manage that extra functionality from within WordPress, including the home page slideshow, featured dogs section, and ad widgets. We also integrated an Aweber newsletter registration form as a sidebar widget.
