Custom WordPress Website for Woodworking Academy


GPD Academy is a custom WordPress website I designed for world-class woodworking expert, Gregory Paolini. He needed a site that matched the look and feel of the Woodshop website I developed for him previously. We copied some elements such as the color scheme, layouts, and information.

Some custom advanced functionality was also required for the Classes and Current Schedule pages. I made a custom post type in WordPress to manage the Classes, and I installed a plugin called, Event Manager, to handle the current schedule. I also found an add-on to the plugin called, WP FullCalendar, which enabled an elegant calendar view.

Gregory also wanted to have a way to add special notes next to the events in the current schedule, so I found a solution using an Attributes feature built into the event manager plugin, and added template shortcodes to display the Attributes in the correct location.

Finally, I made a short tutorial video illustrating exactly how to add/edit events and maintain the schedule.
