I’d previously been asked to create a new site for an artist. Being on a limited budget, we opted for customising a free theme rather than building something bespoke. This is something I wouldn’t normally do as it’s generally a false economy.
There has been subsequent developments of this site, including integrating Paypal to allow people to buy paintings. This also required storing a price in the backend for each painting and determining appropriate postal costs.
You see – not everything has to be done with a plugin 😉
- Customised backend
- Integration of Paypal
- The ability to flag paintings when sold
- Conditional code on the front end to cope with variables
