Dillistone Group Plc company needed well designed website based on WordPress CMS Platform for their product - GatedTalent application. Our goal was to deliver clean and modern looking website, which would proudly represent their idea, providing easy access to information about product features and enable user registration or loginin to the platform.
Pagepro provided four very talented specialist, Chris (Project Manager), Karol (WordPress/Back-End Developer), Bartosz (Designer) and Kate (Front-End Developer). The team was hard working, taking over hours in order to deliver fully completed website on time. As a result, the whole process including making design, coding, testing and deploying - took them one month.
Step 3 HTML coding
Front-End phase always starts with building Website structure in HTML. We emphasise creating HTML components to be as much reusable as possible. In order to make clean and clear code, we use BEM Methodology to maintain order in project.
BEM (Block, Element, Modifier) is an open source technology for developing websites that need to be created quickly and maintained over many years. BEM is used in the front-end development of all Pagepro services.
Step 4 (S)CSS coding
In Pagepro we are using SCCS to writing styles code, as it allows us to achieve great efficiency and reduces risk of future issues on different browsers.
Nowadays, features like mixins or variables for colors, sizes and breakpoints are a “must have” standard in Front-End Development. It makes code reusable and easier to understand for other developers.
Step 6 First Q&A Stage
We always conduct comprehensive Q&A phase after delivering complete Front-End code. Most of all, we are making sure that particular website is working properly on different devices and on all modern browsers.
As a tool, we use BrowserStack for checking compatibility on multiple desktop and mobile browsers. Moreover, we are using real devices to check website functionalities. At least two devices with iOS, two with Android system and two with Windows Operating System.
Our Q&A assistant had been working hard to find all bugs before he handed the code to WP Developer and WordPress Development phase has begun.
Step 7 WordPress Development
As initial action our that our WP Developer took, was to prepare Underscores WordPress Starter for theme development. He had also used ACF Pro plugin in order to make Custom Fields and make almost everything on the website customizable.
Furthermore, the WordPress Multilingual Plugin was set up, which helps to manage site in different languages. When WordPress structure was ready, we focused on applying static elements from previous phase of the project.
