Your new client is a real estate agency of a mountain resort. It still does not have a website and yet has many luxurious chalets for sale!
This agency wants to be able to update its site regularly on its own without recourse to you. You decide to create a site for them in Wordpress that they can modify and use a theme adapted to their needs.
It's your turn !
Step 1: Install Wordpress and a theme
The agency 'Chalets et caviar' in Courchevel has commissioned you to create its website. It has about fifteen luxury chalets for sale as well as other luxury chalets for rent.
She wants a 'clear, clean design that breathes the luxury line of the agency'. It's up to you to find it, install it and configure it. You have to customize the theme so that the agency feels 'at home' and does not feel like having a half-integrated theme in English. Pay particular attention to detail.
For the demo, you will complete the site by adding:
A dozen chalets for sale and for rent (separate well both)
A contact page with contact information and a functional contact form
The website will be put online so that the agency can consult and validate it.
Files to be provided:
Full HTML / CSS / PHP code for Wordpress website
URL of the site hosted on line
Step 2: Configure Access and Documentation
The agency is satisfied with your first proposal but asks you: 'how do we add, modify and delete cottages?!'. You will need to create:
An administrator account for the director of the agency
An administrator account for the developer (you) if it does not already exist
Publishing accounts for the other 2 employees of the agency
Once these accounts are created, you will provide the agency's upgrade instructions on a PDF document of 3 to 5 pages maximum. Be aware that they are not experts in creating websites: so detail the steps and do not hesitate to add screenshots to explain your purpose. They must understand on the basis of this document how to update their website.
Files to be provided:
PDF Documentation of the Wordpress site for the agency
Speaking in real condition, you will present your project. Your mentor will play the role of the client.
The defense is as follows:
Presentation of the site and justification of the graphic choices: 15-20 minutes
A moment questions / answers: 10 minutes
Your mentor will resume his mentoring role at the end of your 'appointment with the client' to debrief with you for 5 minutes.
