Dordogne Gite Website with fresh new WordPress theme

Client Brief : A fresh look for an existing Dordogne Holiday Gite Website

My client had an existing WordPress website to market her French holiday gite in the Dordogne. The brief was to freshen up the style of the existing website whilst retaining the bulk of the content and images, all at a cost-effective price. In addition, the client wanted to change Web Hosting companies.

Our Solution

Dordogne Gites Website wordpress premium themeThis was an ideal match for our Website Freshen-Up Service, where we take an existing website, convert it into a WordPress site and apply a premium theme to make the site look special for a great price.

Due to the complexity of the existing site – as well as the need to change hosting servers – we decide to install a fresh version of WordPress and premium theme on our server, rather than port the entire system across to the new server and then change it there. So the existing page and post content was exported using the Tools –> Export facility in the WordPress back-end and then imported into the new site.

As far as possible we retained the existing page names, and installed the Redirection plugin by John Godley to handle any remaining 301-redirects and 404 page not found errors.

We are currently undertaking a translation of the site into French. The French site will be included as part of the Site Network structure available since wordpress 3.0.
