The Great Torrington Cavaliers are an energetic local fundraising organization. They had an existing website but they were struggling to cope with the changes required whenever they ran a new event. They also wanted a site which would act as a centre for the exchange of information amongst their membership. I chose to use Drupal to build the site which, with its great flexibility and power, has made it much easier for the Cavaliers to publish information and present it in a well-organised fashion. The new site also has a much stronger visual design than the old one.
“Figure W have helped bring the Great Torrington Cavaliers into the 21st century.
Alfred’s knowledge and understanding of the extremely clever Drupal software is second to none. I gave him our requirements and within a couple of days he had a demo site up and running for me to look at.
Having used Microsoft FrontPage previously I had a job getting my head around this new way of administering, and made several desperate requests to Alfred to get me back on track. He was always there to help and never once made it feel awkward or inconvenient.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Likemind to anyone for the website needs.
Thank you Alfred from ALL the Cavaliers — ” — Steve Blake Secretary, Great Torrington Cavaliers
Helen Palmer of Tailor Made South Africa Travel wanted to get control over her website, which was based on an unsatisfactory custom-made PHP application. She already had a WordPress blog so I suggested using WordPress for the entire site. This would mean she could update her pages whenever she liked, which would be a major benefit to the business.
I converted the site template to a WordPress one and migrated the existing content to WordPress pages. This also necessitated some PHP coding to generate the two-tier menu structure she required. At the same time I made the menus keyboard accessible and adjusted font sizes for greater readability. I also added the facility for pages to have fully customisable titles and meta data for search engine optimisation purposes. Finally, I made a little favicon to enhance the site’s identity.
drinkmilk was set up by Simon Williams, aka Crayola, as a home for his graphic design / record label / music distribution business. I was asked by Simon to tighten up the site’s design. Our brief was to ensure his graphical ideas were given a setting that was consistent and user-friendly. Accordingly, I converted his original site to one based on templates and CSS, thereby minimising page size, reducing maintenance overheads and making the site more search engine friendly. I also installed a simple content management system so Simon can manage the site himself.
“Having chosen Likemind to work on the build of our website I immediately knew we had made the correct choice. Likemind were friendly, helpful beyond the call of duty and uncompromisingly professional in their approach to our needs. I would recommend Likemind wholeheartedly to everyone.” — Simon Williams, drinkmilk.
