About the project
As professional full-stack web developers, we had the privilege of rethinking and rebuilding the DressScoop Laval website. The previous site was on Magento 1, and according to the owner's objectives, it was not quite right. Here are some of the problems she encountered while managing her website:
Too much technicality required to administer the site. In 90% of the cases, all the desired modifications will require the help of the developer. As a result, she will have to spend a lot of money without any appropriate return on investment.
The Magento 1 version will reach its end of life by June 2020. As you probably know, the end of life of Magento 1 is scheduled for next year (June 2020). To avoid the security risks associated with the obsolete version of Magento, it had to be upgraded to the latest version or something else.
DressScoop has had to rethink or redesign some functionalities of its website. Extension, the previous developers installed a long time ago were no longer working. The cost of development was not worth it.
Our mission as professional developers
As professional website developers and a team that understands the strength and weakness of various tools, we had to recommend something better. Given its business focus and experience, we recommended WordPress as the best option. Some tools, such as Magento, are an excellent tool for large companies. You usually need a team of developers to help you with management and updates. Whereas WordPress is fairly easy to manage and maintain.
First, DressScoop will be able to update the extension or functionalities of its website without relying on us. Updating a WordPress website is simple.
Secondly, it can update its content and do SEO easily without any additional functionality. On her website, we install Yoast SEO which is easy to use and understand.
Finally, she won't have to worry about security, updating functionality. We train her to do it herself.
Tools and technologies used
We used the latest version of WordPress 5.2.3
Our team developed a template from scratch. As WordPress experts, we can create WordPress templates from Scratch. To provide a unique design for the DressScoop website, we converted an HTML template into a WordPress template.
The design we did was with the Bootstrap framework. For example, responsiveness is crucial these days. One of the advantages of Bootstrap is that it allows you to resize a website to fit the screen size.
Some plugins we have used are Yoast SEO, Smush (to optimize images) and Fast Velocity Minify. These plugins have the particularity of offering a unique experience to your website.
To make sure we didn't use the old syntax or make mistakes during development, we used the W3C validator to validate our coding.
To avoid spam, we have protected all forms on the site with Google Captcha V3.
