The Barlens Project is one of the largest, most detailed and unique systems we have tackled over the last few years. Both Slashdot and our client are very happy with the result. A custom-built WordPress template plugged into one of our favourite plugins “Advanced Custom fields” (ACF) has turned this very complex system into an easy to use and manage system.
No messy cavalcade of plugins to figure out what does which in the back-end system. No lifetime training contract required here. Propeller heads not required to update any element. Each product, page, post, category and system has been carefully arranged into the back-end using a combination of custom posts, ACF, common sense and a dash of minimisation.
And the Front-end system…. It certainly stands out! Its bold, large individual look grabs your attention, yet gets it point across in an easy to use fashion. Not to mention… Its FAST!
Some features include:
- Product listing system run through WooCommerce
- Quoting and Wish-list system
- A look book / inspiration system, where a user selects their event type and subcategory then can see product ideas and information on that selection (Of course those products are cross referenced with the other parts of the system and can easily be added into their quote)
- Every element of this website and system gets a unique, unified look that gels together the various sections from Home page to Handy Hints. All VERY easily edited and managed via the WordPress backend system
