If you turn up at Barefoot Barn in Chagford at any time, chances are there’ll be a bunch of people – of every age – stretching, dancing, meditating, singing, yoga-ing, or just relaxing and taking in the amazing view across Dartmoor.
The Barn did have a website, but it needed freshening up and most importantly the owner, Roger (who by his own admission is far from computer-savvy), wanted to be able to update it himself. So we installed WordPress, wrote some custom plugins that allow him to easily add weekly classes and events to the busy programme, as well as editing pages, and customised the administration interface to be as clean and simple to use as possible. We used browns and greens in the design to reflect the natural, woody feel of the barn and surroundings and its strong environmental principles.
We provided a training session in Roger’s office with a refresher follow-up a month later, and now he’s happily writing and uploading like a pro!
Here’s what Roger has to say about his new website:
Lumpy Lemon have done an amazing job of transforming my website from a simple, plain, barebones site into a wonderfully colourful, easy-to-use and navigate piece of art.
The beauty of it, for a non-tech guy like myself, is that I can add, delete and make changes to any picture or information that I wish.
Simon patiently guided me through the process of learning how to work the site by myself, and was on the phone ready and willing to respond to all my questions.
I’d highly recommend Lumpy Lemon for a website that is clear, attractive and, most of all, once it’s set up, you can manage it yourself!
