After many weeks of work, our 1st Magento project hit the Web: TeraFlex Suspensions. As the purpose of the site in not primarily selling, but also branding and community development, we decided to use WordPress and Magento combination to accomplish the client’s goals.
The Magento portion is visible at http://www.teraflex.biz/products/. We created an original and custom theme from scratch since we did not want it to look like the default one or to have a feel similar to the default one. It was not an easy task as the learning curve for Magento template system is quite steep compared to other solutions. However, it is worth the time.
We added featured products to products page, the lightbox to products info page, and numerous styles that made this store quite unique.
All the menu elements outside Products tab are run by WordPress. We have stuff like:
All of these elements turn WordPress into a feature-rich CMS suitable for larger projects.
How do you like the new site? Feel free to post a comment.
