Project Details

What We Need
  • Updates and/or fixes to Organization’s existing website (e.g., bug fixes, plugin or widget integration, etc.)
  • Training for up to 3 Organization staff members on how to resolve minor issues going forward (if applicable)
Additional Details

Our existing WordPress website is moving very slow on the back end. We have a virtual event coming up in October that will be hosted on our website. We need to create a new page and embed our live stream and auction site onto our website but do not have the knowledge to do so. We are looking for someone who can help us resolve these issues as soon as possible.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a wordpress account, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have two development team members, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $3,757 , allowing us to this will allow us to continue making a difference in our students' lives. We will be able to raise funds to keep living our mission of Empowerment Through Education.

This project is extremely important because the event we are hosting is where we get the majority of our funding for the year. Due to COVID, we are unable to host our event in person so we want to ensure our first virtual event goes as smoothly as possible. Making sure we have an efficient and functional website will help us get there and impress our donors, and still reach our goal despite it being online.

The original assignment was troubleshooting bugs and creating a page to promote the event and embed the virtual event's live stream. The end result? A 12-page microsite for the FriendRaiser, and on the main site a jQuery banner, a popup and a menu item for the FriendRaiser. For a project with tight deadlines, I would usually use Elementor with WordPress but at the time I started the project Elementor was experiencing problems. So we used the Gutenberg Block Editor, which was a learning curve for both myself and staff at Hope Partnership for Education. Because of time constraints on my end, Hope Partnership updated content and designed parts of the microsite themselves. So in the end it was a collaborative project. I wish Hope Partnership much success with their October 23 virtual event.
