Surfrider Pacific Rim


This site is an extensively customized child theme. And, by this I mean, it is basically an entirely new website inside a website! Not always the easiest thing to do, but sometimes you need to satisfy the client and do a little extra. The Pacific Rim Surfrider Chapter had decided that they wanted to use their website as a way to effectively manage and organize a ton of information on a regular ongoing basis. The original parent theme was more of a basic skeleton that wasn’t ideal for the ambitious nature of this group and they needed more. It was a fun challenge to find the best way to give it to them.

I added several custom post types and custom fields and created an easy to use backend for managing the increasing amount of content. Multiple Users with varying web comfort levels required the backend setup to be as easy and intuitive as possible. Because who wants a non-intuitive interface anyway?
