The hædworm website uses a custom child theme of the Divi WordPress Theme. It features customised archive templates for the various content post-types used.
The website is used primarily for showcasing child themes and plugins created for users of the Divi WordPress Theme by Elegant Themes. The site was initially used as a live testing ground. After writing various tutorials and developing several plugins for the Divi Theme, it made sense to make more constructive use of the website. It is now somewhere to provide plugin support and CSS/Divi related tips for the wider Divi community. Plus, this was an opportunity to express my own work in a more personal way.
Custom WordPress Plugins
The site makes use of the Divi plugins I am currently developing. A 3D Tilt effect ‘blurb’ module and it’s younger sibling a Tilt effect Image module. You can see the plugins in action throughout the site and on their respective ‘project’ pages.
I highly recommend building a site that allows you to express your personality, especially as a web developer. It’s is a great way to keep the work interesting and fun. A great vehicle for learning new things and keeping up with the ever changing coding techniques used in web design and development. It can also be a lot of fun to build and maintain, providing the freedom to push the boundaries beyond what it is required by most website builds.
Building your own website.
If you’ve ever thought about creating your own website, WordPress is a great place to start. Whether you want to build something for your business or on a more personal level. WordPress is a great platform you can build upon to showcase what you get up to in your spare time. A place to share photos with family and friends or write articles about the things that interest you… or annoy you. It can also be a great opportunity to give something back to the community you are a part of.
I highly recommend you check out WordPress as well as the Divi WordPress Theme and Builder. Both provide a great opportunity for anyone wanting to learn how to build their own website. Plus, we have the perfect fully managed hosting solution for you. Whether you want an entire website built for you that you can add and edit content as and when you need. Or, if you want a basic WordPress installation where you can add and modify your own WordPress Theme. We’ve got you covered.
