Jimmy is a recent friend of mine in music who has to have, no joke, the world’s best resume for a musician. From John Cougar, to Aretha Franklin, he has quite literally done it all. So the opportunity to build him a site that he can manage and have freedom with was exciting. His site is built on WordPress and uses a custom theme.
Some of the main features of his site that I was excited about was creating a seamless integration into Facebook. He can add his own unique photo albums to the site, and has a place where his Facebook photos appear as well. Originally all of the albums were shown together as well, but he wanted to simplify it into an album.
The theme uses multiple custom post types for the various information he will be posting. Tour dates, Discography, and separate portfolio options are all available at his discretion. On top of that the Portfolio section utilizes various post formats to easily organize all of the different things he will be posting in the future. Jimmy has a lot of audio and video snippets that will easily be synced up.
We are still working on some small tweaks and he is learning the new system, but overall I am happy with where this project has gone.
