Diane Heacox, Ed.D.

TYPE: Informational/Lead Generation
THEME: Hestia

Diane Heacox contacted me in early 2019. She wanted a more updated look for her website, and needed some areas to be easily updated herself.

Diane conducts workshops and sessions at conferences so she needed to have pages for events and a place for attendees to download her handouts in addition to the pages . Most importantly, she needed to be able to update the handouts herself since she often uploads the final version while at the conference moments before her scheduled sessions. 

Overall Design

Dr. Heacox wanted a more traditional look with the menu on the top and various sections on the home page.

She wanted to keep the same branding color scheme she had. She also wanted bold buttons and large dark text.

I built the website on WordPress using the Hestia theme. I customized the site using Elementor Pro page and site builder.

Easy Updating

Diane needed to be able to make updates on the fly, but she’s not tech savvy so I created forms for her to add and edit information on her Events, Articles and Handouts pages.

Using the plugins Custom Post Types, Advanced Custom Fields, ACF Frontend Forms and Jet Engine I was able to create a way for Diane to simply fill out a form and the information would be propagated into templates on the appropriate pages.

The end user only sees the listing but when Diane logs in, the listings change so that she can add, delete or update an event.

The end result is that Diane is able to input the information is one spot, once and it propagates to multiple listing places.
