The Bike Shed Motorcycle Club: from biker blog to 12,000 square foot Shoreditch venue featuring a 100 seat cafe/bar, shop, gallery and more.
In 2014, Anthony ‘Dutch’ van Someren from TheBikeShed.cc approached me with a specification for a bespoke WordPress plugin that would allow Bike Shed users to quickly and easily add their bikes to the website to be listed for sale in a new “classifieds” section. He wanted prospective customers to be able to filter the bike ads by country, city and value.
I created the Classifieds section using WordPress’ custom post types and taxonomies, setting up a bespoke admin panel in the WordPress backend to allow management of the bike ads, and allowing quick payment for bike owners via PayPal (Standard Payments).
By the time the Classifieds section was replaced in May 2015, it had processed over 400 bike ads.
