MyDIY Genius Website

This site had several phases to complete before launch. Firstly, the basic framework and engine was to be built using standard theme development practices. The designer provided most of the art direction which guided my creation process.

Second there was the matter of developing an import process for all data and supporting images connected to each product. The import from CSV format assistend in populating necessary custom fields that the single and archive templates would use on the front end.

Third, I needed to create a an ajax searching mechanism that could be reused in various pages to search within their categories.

Finally, some cookie supported site translation was added and toggled from the top bar of site.

I enjoyed this project immensely due to it being so rewarding when all the pieces finally fit together. The final product is a robust product database with a standardized updating procedure.
