Backend and CMS
For this project I developed the Wordpress instance locally, created and tested the Custom Post Types, Custom Fields and populated with Dummy content. I completed and tested the site locally before moving to a live server.
I setup and configured a live Apache server and transferred the site using SFTP. I have since stopped paying for this Apache server so no longer have a hosted version of this demo project but the codebase is available on Github at the link above.
Custom Post Types, Books and Short Stories
This was developed as a theme an author could use so I created 2 Custom Post Types. One for Books and another for Short Stories. This allows the user to upload a book cover, short description and full article post for each.
The cover and short description are used for the index pages for each Post Type. The Index page of books for example displays a list of all the books in the database showing the book cover and short description for each. The cover thumbnail would lead to a detailed entry page for the particular book when clicked.
Contact Form Integration
I created the Contact and Newsletter Forms and integrated them with Wordpress using the Contact Form 7 and Flamingo plugins. This allowed a user to send a contact form and the contents of the form would be sent as an email as well as being saved in the Wordpress backend.
