We’ve just given the website for Wild Boar Week a makeover ready for this year’s event.
Wild Boar Week is a food event in Rye, East Sussex and this year the website needed re-vamping to be able to include all the new events that are being organised from live music to art exhibitions.
The original website was setup with WordPress but using the default theme. We have designed and developed a completely new theme which makes use of WordPress’ new built-in header and background options.
The theme also allows for posts to contain location data (latitude and longitude coordinates) which means that posts can be automatically placed on a Google map.
Custom fields have been used to allow a post to define another post as it’s “location” which means that event and menu item posts can be assigned to their restaurant or venue posts.
Featured images are made use of and these images are shown both on the post pages, on map pins and on archive pages as promo boxes with jQuery rollover effect.
Our aim was to create an event theme that would be able to display all the different types of information to the user in a clear and aesthetically pleasing manner.
