So this recent project I completed is actually a personal website of mine that I have been wanting to finish up for some time now and I finally got it done.  The Wine Balancer is a very simple ecommerce website currently selling only one product, a Wine Balancer.  A Wine Balancer is basically a piece of wood that is cut at a certain angle which blanances a bottle of wine giving it the effect of being “gravity defying”.  I personally make these balancers myself out of Oak using a drill press and a chop box and then hand sanding and staining them.

The website features some awesome photos taken by Yasmin Khajavi of YKVision Photography in Portland.  Here are the rest of the plugins being used on the site:

  • All in One SEO Pack – For SEO, Duh
  • Better WordPress Minify – Faster loading of Pages
  • Cart66 Lite – Using this to manage my Ecommerce Aspect.  This is the free version and there is a more robust “paid” version available as well.  So far this has worked out great.
  • Easing Slider – For my home page Slider
  • Exclude Pages from Navigation – Always use this plugin to keep certain pages out of the Nav
  • Fast Secure Contact Form – My Favorite Contact Form Plugin
  • Google Analytics for WordPress – For Analytics, Duh
  • Google XML Sitemaps – For sitemaps, Duh
  • Login Lockdown – Site Security Plugin.  Easy and Effective.  Prevents people from guessing your login
  • My Page Order – To help order my navigation
  • No Self Pings – Cause self pings are just annoying
  • Raven’s Anitspam – New Antispam plugin I am trying out
  • Secure WordPress – For Security Purpsoses
  • Subscribe to Comments – Allows visitors to subscribe to your comments
  • Viper’s Video Quicktags – Makes adding videos much easier
  • WordPress Database Backup – Emails me weekly backups of my Database
  • WP-prettyPhoto – One of several Lightbox plugins I choose from
  • WP Google Fonts – For easier and prettier fonts

And here are some screenshots from the website:
