Web Design & Programming

I can create simple, low-cost Web sites to give you a presence on the Web and allow people to contact you, or sophisticated database-driven sites for businesses with many products. Other services include helping you select the e-commerce providers that best suit your business, and getting your site indexed and ranked highly in search engines so your audience can find you:

  • Custom e-stores, with shopping carts and electronic payment.
  • Controls for sorting, searching, and filtering catalog data.
  • Administration tools that let site owners update content on their own.
  • Tools to maintain mailing lists, and create and send out newsletters.
  • Contact forms to avoid the harvesting of email addresses by SpamBots.
  • Capture of data from Web forms.
  • Search engine submission and optimization.
  • Languages and technologies: PHP, JavaScript, CSS, DHTML, CGI scripts written in C

GoodFood Natural Foods

This is a demo site for a natural foods store. The shopping cart is an expandable form that was custom written using PHP and JavaScript. The site interfaces with a PIM called Maximizer. When you click the "Place order" button, it sends an email notification of the "order" with the attachments that Maximizer knows how to read. Maximizer's Web development tool, ecBuilder, also works by generating these emails, but its design doesn't allow for an expandable order form.

The site's email notifications are hardcoded to go to me, but you can redirect them to yourself with this URL:

Replace you@domain.com with your email address.
