Sweet Thursday Web Development Portfolio

I work with small businesses, individuals, web designers and other web developers building websites, programming, troubleshooting and performing updates. I have built websites or worked on projects for Caesars, SDG & E, the world famous Hotel del Coronado, SpeakInc, California Bank & Trust, Green Flash Brewery and many more.

Below are some recent examples of websites I have built (I have built and worked on hundreds). I love working on any size project. No project is too small and I can fit most any budget. Let’s talk! Email me at gdraeger@sweetthursdayweb.com.

California Against Slavery (CAS)

CAS wanted a brand new website to enable users to find resources by region and topic.
Project Details
Launch Date August 2019
Type of Site WordPress
About the Site Custom theme, custom PHP and Javascript programming
Some Plugins Used Advanced Custom Fields, All in One SEO, BackUpWordpress, Custom Sidebars, Limit Login Attempts, Relevanssi (Better Search), Search & Filter Pro, WP Super Cache
Notes CAS had a large spreadsheet of Organizations in California that help individuals who have been victims of human trafficking. The goal was to take the information in this spreadsheet and implement it into their website via a new custom WordPress theme so that users on the website would be able to find help in the areas where they live.

CAS had several requests:

  • Make the information searchable
  • Allow users to filter the information by many different categories and sub-categories
  • Allow admins to add additional organizations into the backend of WordPress
  • Create a form that would allow new organizations to enter the information so that it goes into the backend of WordPress where an admin can look over the information and then okay it to be displayed on the website. I.e. CAS did not want to have to manually enter the information after a new organization fills out a form
  • Keep the site clean and easily readable
