XHTML/CSS

Best Rate Mortgage

Originally a tabled design, recreated the original look and feel of the page using compliant XHTML/CSS. Also implemented SEO across the site to better target North and South Carolina in search results.

Butler Springs

A complete site re-design taking the site from hand coded table design and moving it to the Joomla system for ease of use on the administration backend, as well as converting the code to the much more friendly XHTML/CSS structure. Also provided custom JavaScripting, Flash, and Form work for use within the Joomla CMS.

FarmAds

Implemented, improved, and rolled out a custom classifieds script built upon third party code. I also improved the overall look and feel of the site, changing the color scheme to one much more user friendly, as well as including a “Featured Ads” schema. Also implemented the forums and auto-image uploading/scaling part of this site, this code was developed by a third party and had to be tweaked a lot to get what the user was after. This site uses tables and css for overall look and feel.

Fine Furniture Finishing

XHTML/CSS verified. This site is still under minor development. It is getting a complete overhaul for XHTML/CSS to replace the current table structure and php language as well as improvements for SEO. The site is being built using CSS Framework as well as AJAX and built 100% to customer spec.

NetWinner

XHTML/CSS design with heavy implements of Flash. Setup the original framework of the site as well as creating Flash banner ads, surveys, and other rich media applications. I have not worked on this site in two years and cannot take responsibility for the game design or newer applications that have been introduced. Most of my rich media work can only be seen when you trigger a prize winning event. I no longer have any input on this project or the site itself.

Phil Television

This is a site for a friend, rebooting it and bringing it into today’s world. All of the code is XHTML/CSS, while dealing with the problems of embedded flash content. You can view how the site once looked by clicking here. The site has some harsh language, so be warned.

US Club Poker

XHTML/CSS verified. This site is currently under development. With this site I am in the process of implementing a custom administration interface as well as a larger content section only available to registered club members. Members will also be able to recieve club news, updates and event reminders via automated email and SMS messaging services. This is all being handled using LAMP and is all custom code.

WordPress Themes/CMS

Accordion

This WordPress theme is even more far out than the last one. Originally I found this design on the six shooter site. It was written in XHTML/CSS/AJAX as a stand-alone sight. I got rather bored one evening and decided to port it over to WordPress. It’s named “Accordion” because, A> that’s the name of the main AJAX script that it uses, and B> I’m totally unoriginal at the moment.

EasyGrey

EasyGrey is a custom made template for use with WordPress. It was designed with the potential for a mid to large level music (or anything really) site. It’s extremly easy to update and modify for the non-computer savvy people out there. You need a very LIMITED knowledge of HTML to make this theme work for you. It’s all custom code and strays from your typical WordPress themes.

eCOM

CellPhone Jammers

CellPhone Jammers is another OSCommerce shopping cart application for the same client. I was responsible for adding many community contributions as well as custom coding of various API’s. I also performed database recovery (MySql) and monitoring. It may not look like much, but hundreds of pages of code were tweaked to make all of the contributions and applications work seamlessly within the site. Feel free to request a code sample.

Miscellaneous

Carolina Nissan’s is a regional portal, news, and discussion forum for everything Nissan in North and South Carolina. I helped apply more security and user restraint’s regarding uploading of materials, moving it from a manual approval process, to an automated one. Also reformatted a lot of the CSS to conform to today’s standard and provided database assistance during their upgrade.
