Universal Student Living is a specialist student accommodation management company with campuses dotted around the UK. They contacted us as they wanted to integrate a WorldPay payment form into their WordPress website. This led onto further theme improvements including a homepage redesign, visual improvements to the site along with bespoke WordPress plugin development.
WordPress Integration With WorldPay
The idea was that students would fill out their details in a payment form on the website and after their details were validated they would then be taken through to WorldPay to securely process their payment and notify Universal Student Living of the transaction. The end solution was developed using a bespoke WordPress plugin, which allowed the site owner to embed this payment form into any page or post in the website.
After creating the payment form we were tasked with making a number of amendments to their WordPress website, the biggest of these was coding up a new homepage design supplied by their designer. The old homepage didn’t work correctly on tablet and mobile devices and instead of investing time fixing the old homepage it was decided that developing a new website homepage would be the best course of action. The new homepage focused on showcasing their student accommodation.
The website’s footer was re-coded to match the updated homepage redesign. While we worked on restyling the footer some theme amends were applied to improve how this looked for tablet and mobile devices. In 2015 the client decided to update the colour scheme and logo for the website. They replaced the red and grey colour scheme with blue and green, which had to be changed throughout the website.
After the success of the theme amendments it was decided that we should integrate website translations so visitors can easily read the content of the site. This was phased out towards the end of 2014 as Google Translate didn’t provide accurate translations for the content.Visit Website
