Hotel Website Upgrade

Well, that took longer than expected but the Annandale Arms Hotel website for the Moffat tourist destination finally got a makeover in the style of a WordPress conversion from a legacy vbscript content management system. Still comfortable enough on a Windows server with a web.config situation for the permalinks.


The theme is based on SKT Coffee Pro as it was the best fit and includes a simple custom google analytics plugin to maintain the webmaster tools and general google verifications.

The facebook logo link in the header is an font awesome construct using stacked icons which was fun to play with.

Plugins to note are: VenoBox lightbox, Yoast SEO, Shortcodes Ultimate and Custom Facebook Feed with a Contact Form 7 including google recaptcha integration for peace of mind in this modern day and age. The facebook bridging has long been key to the business profile.

Finally and almost presumptiously, the website is finally responsive and renders well on ubiquitous smartphones and tablets. Bargain.
