This site promotes a small company in Idaho that installs custom holiday lighting, and stores it during the off-season. It features a classic one-page design, deconstructed logo hero slider, spam-protected contact form, staff bios, and a gallery of work examples. Each season, the contact form generates dozens and dozens of leads for the company. This is a second-generation redesign that followed a change of ownership in 2018. The redesign was conceived, built, and launched in about 10 days.
Around 2013, we were approached by some Elko County judges who were impressed with a site we built for the Sixth Judicial District Court here in Winnemucca. They asked us to put together a single website to serve as an information clearinghouse for all eight courts in Elko County, Nevada. It was a labor-intensive project initially, as we worked with a large group of clients to pull together all the media and information needed. After several weeks, we launched on Joomla 2.5. Distributing costs among the various courts helps keep costs low for Elko County taxpayers. We migrated to Joomla 3.x in 2017, and the site serves an impressively high volume of users. It features an advanced download manager that serves up the self-help legal forms preferred by each court, custom logo branding, judge bios, courthouse maps and photos, links to third-party ticket payment gateways, and SSL encryption for a handful of domain names that point to the site.
This site uses custom photography and advanced Google Maps techniques to showcase the work of a local building contractor. It also features a catalog component showcasing the builder’s sideline in fine furniture. It began life in 2010 on Joomla 1.5, and was migrated to Joomla 3.x six years later. During the migration, a new template was implemented, as the old one was no longer maintained. Additional features include spam-protected contact forms, mobile-clickable phone numbers, and Google Maps with custom info bubble and printable driving directions.
This site launched with a new, custom logo design, and an extensive catalog of the museum’s attractions, photographed by us and described by museum founder Pansilee Larson. Several years later, we added an online store offering memberships, historical publications, and event tickets. Winnemucca Web Works is proud to donate the hosting and maintenance for this site, and even more proud that, with a little help at times, museum staff have largely been able to add and modify content by themselves. Over the years, the site has migrated from Joomla 1.5 to 2.5 and finally to 3.x. These migrations entailed a full template replacement, along with the replacement of several essential components.
This site was originally built on WordPress 2, by Bill Sims, director of GBAE, a non-profit aimed at bringing quality musical entertainment to Winnemucca. Around 2010, I migrated the site to my hosting platform, added a direct email system built atop PHP-List, and have donated hosting and maintenance ever since. The site’s aging template required several minor surgeries to keep it running on more modern versions of WordPress. So, in 2019, I convinced Bill to let me migrate the whole site to a more modern template. To ensure our new template provider would never go out of business or loose interest, I sellected WordPress 5’s built-in “TwentySeventeen” theme, which was more than up to the task of recreating Bill’s original website vision with good mobile device support and great speed. Oh, and I also added a simple online ticket sales system based on Event Tickets from Modern Tribe, and a new “Past Performances” page that presents historic show information in a succinct and aesthetic way.
