From StudioPress Genesis to WOO Themes Canvas in one fell swoop. OK, 37 …

The client was just spending too much time tinkering and kept requesting little changes to which our answer was, “Yeah, uh, sorry, but that sort of thing would be easier if we just switched the theme to WOO Themes Canvas.” We finally made the switch and already things are easier–and look great.

We’re using the full-width Business Slider as a headline for many of the pages. They’re easy to switch out, use multiple slides per page, and assign Slide Groups to manage them easily. We’re also using on the home page (but using the same image with different text … our low tech solution to fading text).

The Representative Transactions page is a little coup on its own. Using some fancy pants code under the hood, it’s turning regular posts into a filterable portfolio. Beauty is that we’re not using custom post types so just in case we want to do this another way, we’re safe with the format.

Overall, the site is looking great and we also switched hosting to WP Engine so it’s speedy and secure.
