the Bike Shed – Classifieds

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.

    Jem developed our new website on time and to budget. She worked through the detail excellently and we got a superb end product that was optimised for web and mobile. We were highly impressed by her approach and knowledge. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone wanting to embark on such a project.

    Jem has been unflinchingly helpful with every stage of the development of the Albion site, and has helped us keep it up to date and functioning effectively, solving problems as they have arisen. I am a techno-phobe, but Jem has been unfailingly supportive, helpful, always friendly and efficient. Also her rates seem really good value, but don’t tell her I said so.

    Jem’s knowledge and experience of the WordPress platform has proved invaluable to Source in the time that she has been working with us. Her ability to quickly and efficiently build a WordPress website from the visuals provided is second to none – as is her willingness to support our in-house development team with their WordPress projects. Source would have no hesitation in recommending Jem to anyone looking for an experienced WordPress developer for their project or agency.

    We wanted to update our old website, Jem came highly recommended and I can see why. She had lots of great ideas and design skills, nothing was too much trouble, with very prompt replies to our emails. The end result blew me away, and I would recommend her web design services to anyone. 100% total satisfaction.

Why I love working with WordPress

I've been using WordPress since the heady days of version 1.0 and developing WordPress websites commercially since version 1.5 (released in 2005!)
