Joshua Vs The World
This is a personal project of mine. I quit my full-time job to travel the world for a year and wanted a way for friends and family to be part of my travels. Lauren Warr designed the graphics and I built the site. This was one of the first WordPress only projects and provided a great learning opportunity. This is also the first site that I migrated over to WHL. I am now hosting client’s sites as an added source of revenue while still providing the support my clients have come to expect from me.
Many of the site’s features came after the site was live. Support for Retina displays were added as well as image caching. This being one of my first WordPress only sites familiarized me with PHP, WordPress Plugins, and the flexibility, or lack thereof, with various themes.
Not knowing where and when I’d be, it was important for me to have a consistent browsing experience, no matter the device I used to access the Internet. Making this site responsive was cumbersome since it was an afterthought. Implementing mobile-ready versions during initial development is a much more efficient approach. Needless to say the site is responsive and looks great.
