Dental Professionals had several goals in mind in seeking to revamp their website. The company wanted dental offices to be able to submit jobs and potential employees to register with Dental Professionals and apply for those jobs. Of course, Dental Professionals wanted to be able to edit and approve the jobs that would appear on their site.
Kool Kat Web Designs selected the WP Job Manager plugin to manage the posting of jobs. The plugin is light weight and easy to customize. We were able to change to layout, add custom fields and create links to forms where potential employees could apply for jobs.
Dental Professionals also wanted a simple layout that would work on phones and tablets as well as desktops and laptops. To this end, we chose to build a child theme based on the Responsive Theme from CyberChimps. Kool Kat Web Designs incorporated a custom logo and designed the child theme to have a more modern look than the original responsive theme.

Jonesy’s Automotive Restoration is built on a WordPress child theme of the Merchant theme from Woo Themes. Using a child theme enabled us to incorporate the Jonesy’s logo and banner in addition to the custom colors used throughout the site. In addition, we were able to take aspects of the built-in functionality and apply it to other areas. For example, the portfolio uses a light-box and slide show that we were able to leverage for the standard WordPress gallery. The theme is responsive and adjusts in size so it looks great on desktops, laptops, tablets and phones.
