Our role was simple, to aid them to put together a bespoke WordPress website for their brand which can appeal to the right kind of audience they were looking to imprint. With the power of WordPress CMS, there is hardly anything difficult to achieve in today’s day and age and our team just put that into practice rightly.
Embedding their supplied web layouts into a fresh vanilla WordPress theme set up from scratch, providing the advantage to access & alter almost anything on the website through the advanced custom field (ACF) add-on turned out to be a perfect recipe for Chelsea Studio team. The site is up and they hardly fail to exhibit their grin from ear to ear about our work whenever we meet them over a coffee!
Next was to create the suite of local sites, each tailored to the country of business, including expertly translated local languages. In some instances multiple languages were required, so we made use of WPML, which allows users to switch.
These sites share many features with the group site, but also have an array of additional custom functionality, including:
Besides WordPress Multisite, we implemented Gravity Forms for form data management and personalisation. These forms were also integrated with Campaign Manager for easy email list management.
We used the Google Maps API to create the global locations and stockist map. Whilst we used WPML to handle country sites which required the ability to switch between multiple languages.
Since launch the sites have been a great success, giving Bakels a highly customised solution, whilst providing them with ease of use and control over their content.Since launch the sites have been a great success, giving Bakels a highly customised solution, whilst providing them with ease of use and control over their content.
The Multisite solution means that any code pushes or updates only need to be carried out once for all sites, saving the client time and money.
