New website for Swinton Park

The new website for Swinton Park is now live.

Swinton Park is a country estate at Masham in Yorkshire and offers a hotel with 31 bedrooms, a cookery school, spa and estate activities.

The graphic design was provided to me and I then built the site using the WordPress content management system.This involved quite a lot of customization of WordPress to create a visual theme for the site and to build plug-ins to make the website behave as required.

Previously the content of the website was managed using Adobe Dreamweaver which meant that it was difficult for staff at the hotel to manage the content, to add new pages and to incorporate them into the menu without calling on me to do that. Using WordPress they now have much greater control over the website.
