Our collaboration

The Kilrenny & Anstruther Burgh Collection is a local heritage charity. Their website was hosted on a very small (100 MB) hosting account which limited how many updates and images they could display, and they used a clunky way to sell books and membership, their primary sources of income.

First, I helped them move their website and domain name to a new hosting account with TSOHost.

Next, we worked together over a few weeks to understand requirements, work out the new site structure and design before collaborating on the build.

As they were already familiar with WordPress, the new site was built using the Divi theme in WordPress, using WooCommerce for the new style bookstore, and retaining PayPal as the payment gateway (which was also retained for membership payments).

One key requirement was to be able to dynamically calculate postage costs for book orders. This was done simply with the Royal Mail Live Rates WooCommerce plugin, although there was a little customisation needed to hide unwanted options due to the limitation of local post office facilities.
