K&S Builta Website Redesign

December 28, 2019

Over time it’s necessary to refresh the look of a website. K&S Furniture/Builta’s site is one I created several years ago, which needed an update. The old site was set up using WordPress multi-site; this made each store its own separate website inside of one large WordPress install. Over time this had caused it to be bigger and more cumbersome than it needed to be — this causing more time in maintaining the site along with taking up more space on the server.

The task was to get the site down to a more manageable size and also give the whole site a new look. The new look of the website also provides each store with its own separate design.

I set up a fresh install of WordPress then imported the pages, posts, and media over to the newly created site. The clean install helped to clear out the database of any old information that had been deleted and any leftover information from any plugins that are no longer in use. By importing the data over, it saves on having to retype or copy and paste all those pages and posts.

With a fresh new install and the data brought over, I designed the web site using a customizable theme. The customizable theme allows me full control over the look and feel of the website. By using that theme, I can have each of the stores on the site have their individual look. Most importantly, with the new site, you can easily travel from one store to the next, just as if you were in the physical store.
