Pam and Jack, the owners, were not happy with their existing website. The previous designer used stock images showing tropical fish not native to the BC coast. Jack, a photographer, had plenty of better images to share, but the designer would not make time to add them, nor to integrate their AirBnB listing into the website. The couple found their existing web company to be unresponsive and were very frustrated.

We overhauled the setup to improve the performance of the website. In our case that meant simple HTML / Ajax landing pages instead of sluggish WordPress sites for what was a single lead capture form.
Third party add-ons can slow down a site by as much as 25%. That’s a problem we solved. We built a custom plugin to interface with the YotPo recommendation and review system. It interacted directly with the YotPro API to create content native to the DiamondKote site. In doing this, we made the data originate from the DiamondKote site and not a third party service source. That allowed us to contain the data locally in caches and improve overall performance.
We migrated the meeting and agenda information from a legacy system built with Drupal 7. We created an integration that exported all of the data from Drupal using Views and the Export-CSV function. The data was imported into WordPress using the WP All-in-One Import plugin to turn the Drupal content into WordPress content.
