Responsive WordPress Web Design for Gift of Life

Responsive WordPress Web Design for Gift of Life in Kansas City
This is one of the most versatile WordPress Web Design templates we’ve developed so far. The responsive code is really clean and efficient, and it renders great on mobile devices.

This is the kind of design we like to use on larger sites, and the philosophy here is the reverse of what you might have with a one page template – where the concern is not having enough content to make it look substantial enough. When you get into larger sites with more content, the problem is delivering it in a nice clean way that isn’t overwhelming, and this design fits the bill.

It has a big roomy layout with plenty of space for navigation, and we were able to get all of the navigation for the whole site in the left column. The about section is divided into subcategories, and for that we used an accordion menu in the left column.

This is also reflected in the main header menu – where the about section items are displayed in two level drop downs. The drop down menus are also clean and snappy, and very simple in appearance. Again with a larger site this is what you want so your menus won’t look too cluttered when you have lots of links up there. We also like the “sticky header” feature – which means the header navigation and logo will always be visible no matter how far down you scroll on a page.

We designed the original Gift of Life WordPress site with page taxonomy, since most of their content was more or less static. More recently we added a large video library, and for that we used the WordPress post taxonomy so all of their videos could be archived by category.

Also notice that each section you’re in will display the navigation for that section at the top of the left column. Normally we like keeping navigation more static, but in this case it made sense to highlight each of those sections more by making them rise to the top of the list.

Overall we like how clean and easy to navigate it is, and it’s been performing well with search engines and audiences alike.
