WFAANZ Redesign

Ally from WFAANZ needed a completely new website built in WordPress. As the current website was built in Adobe Catalyst, which was being made redundant. So we had to build a completely new site in a short amount of time. The site needed a members directory for their window tinters. Most importantly, the website needed to look modern and look good on a mobile phone. As the current site did not.

Ally did our 1 on 1  Build a WordPress Website course over 3 days. Each session was 3 hours.


This is the new WFAANZ website


This was the old site

Day 1 – training

The first thing we did was set the site up on Quadra Hosting. We use these guys all the time, so know they are a reliable hosting company. With great support!

  • Next, we installed Divi.
  • We use Divi a lot because it’s easy to use page builder.
  • A page builder allows you to add any type of layout to the page.
  • Including sliders, images, text boxes, buttons and more.
  • We had quite a lot of work to do.
  • Including creating page layouts for all the pages.
  • The best feature of the Divi theme is you can copy page layouts.
  • So this made it a bit less time-consuming.


Day 2  – training

  • The first thing we did was research a plugin for the window tinters members directory.
  • We found one called the Sabai Directory plugin.
  • Click here to view. This was a paid plugin and as you can see it’s not that expensive.
  • And its a great little plugin for displaying members details.
  • So it took the entire 3 hours to set this up.
  • As we had to import all the members from the old site to the new site.
  • We did this by mapping the old CSV file to the CSV file in the directory.

Day 3 – training

  • We finalised all the page layouts.
  • And also installed a members login.
  • So the members (tinters) could log in to view documents and videos.
  • Next, we completed the footer.
  • Added some widgets for Social Media and links.
  • And added a contact form.
  • Lastly, we made the site live.

Ally is confident to keep adding content to the site and managing the member’s directory.
