20 ways to improve the experience of content editing in WordPress
My presentation at WordCamp Manchester 2015
WordPress & Charities
LASA have asked me to present a follow-up to February’s successful webinar.
Nonprofit Technology Conference
San Jose, California
Bringing together charity professionals and techies for three days of seminars and receptions, plus an additional WordPress Day.
This annual gathering of WordPress users and developers is calling for sponsors and presenters.
Over 100 speakers are being lined up to talk on a range of WordPress design and development topics.
Jason has presented at WordCamps and some of those presentations are available on WordPress.tv
On February 2016 I presented a webinar about WordPress for charities, on behalf of London Advice Services Alliance (LASA) with funding from London Councils.
This Australian women’s charity wanted a website to support a consultation campaign. Its WordPress theme was built to work on small and large screens, with a minimal design, simple colours and specially commissioned icons.
Healthwatch Derbyshire commissioned me to build a WordPress website to act as a “Trip Advisor” for local health and social care organisations, enabling the public to rate and review them and get a response to their feedback.
How can you improve on the default WordPress dashboard; and make the post editing toolbar less cluttered, more intuitive and relevant for your users? Watch this presentation from WordCamp Manchester.
Websites are your charity’s window to the world. Get it right and you can drive traffic to your website, get your message over and attract new supporters. However, planning a new website is a complex task and there’s a lot to consider. I presented this webinar on behalf of London Advice Services Alliance.
Charities can struggle to plan and manage a website. This presentation at WordCamp London 2015 addresses questions they might ask: how to find a WordPress developer; what to put in the project brief; and how can WordPress be used to create campaign and directory websites.
The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust website raises awareness of ectopic pregnancies amongst women of childbearing age, the medical profession and the general public. I built their website using WordPress and online forums using phpBB.
Law for Life is a charity dedicated to ensuring that people have the knowledge, confidence and skills needed to deal with law-related issues. I designed and built their website using WordPress.
I built this membership organisation a WordPress website, to put lists of approved woodturners onto maps so that the public can find them easily.
TeamPB was a website jointly run by The Prostate Cancer Charity and Breast Cancer Care. They provided the visuals and I made it work in WordPress. It was invaluable for recruiting new runners via online forms.
When this association – formerly known as the Social Impact Analysts Association – underwent a rebranding, I redesigned their WordPress website.
I built this website — Dementia Friendly Environments — for the Department of Health. The site was built to follow Australian government guidelines on accessibility, and uses the corporate branding of Victorian goverment websites.
TGV Design, a branding and marketing communications company, commissioned me to build their new website in WordPress. The TGV website had few static pages; apart from a blog, its main feature was a portfolio of their work with galleries of images for each of their clients.
The RSA Comment commissioned me to build a website where you can read opinion pieces, watch topical videos, comment on them and submit your own writing for publication. The site carefully follows the corporate branding of the RSA.
I was commissioned to build a campaign website for Breast Cancer Care. Photoshop mockups were provided, which had been created by a graphic design company. I took these pictures and turned them into a functioning website.
Baptcare is a large non-profit organisation providing care services in the state of Victoria, Australia. With over 760 staff based in several dozen locations, working in very different projects, good internal communication is vital. That’s why their Intranet is so important to them.
An Intranet is like a website except that it’s only available to people working within the organisation. It’s used to share information internally rather than to publicly promote the organisation’s services. In 2008 I redesigned Baptcare’s Intranet home page. […]
Online discussion forums enable your website’s visitors to have a conversation. Your website could host a busy virtual community; and if you are a health organisation you could even use forums to provide an Internet-based support network. In 2007 the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust won an eWellbeing award for its use of online forums in building social networks. This case study explains what was learnt along the way.
