Travis4staterep.com is a small mini-site for Travis Stauffer‘s campaign for State Representative in Pennsylvania – he’s running locally, not in the state level. The website gives him a web presence and also a way for him to be contacted and receive donations.
A website was already started with Wix.com but wasn’t completed because of complications with receiving donations and design.
Server, WordPress, and setup
Because the old site was on Wix, a new server on another host was created and a new install of WordPress was deployed for this project. To keep costs low, an applicable non-premium theme was installed together with all the plugins that this website would need.
Content from the first site was imported over and the theme was customized. The site layout and outline were implemented to make a very clean website.
Contact form and donations
One requirement was for there to be a contact form present on the site so that visitors could contact Travis and volunteer for his campaign. A forms plugin was installed and a contact form was configured.
Another requirement was for the website to be able to receive donations thru First Data’s Payeezy. A suitable solution was used, which also enabled the collection of the donor’s place of employment for donations over $250.00.
