Haley wanted to move her blog over from WordPress.com to WordPress.org as she reshifted her content to focus more on healthy living and travel. Using the Lily Package, I modified the Hickory theme with customizations to showcase her photography and highlight her content.
For the logo, Haley selected Wondering Wisteria – a timeless identity with classic navy and oxblood colors. For her website and email sign-up, she opted to use the header variation. She wanted her design to be feminine, but appeal to males as well (since her content is not gender-specific).
Haley’s customizations to the Hickory theme include the following:
- Custom Slider
- Optional Post View
- Custom Contact Form
- Custom Colors
- Favicon + Pin It Button
- Custom Fonts
This package included integrating her Mailchimp RSS campaign and setting up sign-up forms throughout the site. I also transferred all her content over from WordPress.com to the self-hosted WordPress.
