Redoux Interiors is a DIY and furniture flipping site owned by Karen Berg. She is also has been a business owner / representative for paint designer in the past, which she intends to pick back up again.
Prior to contacting Snazzy Designs, she worked with a designer that created a custom WordPress site. Karen felt some of her ideas were not implemented on the site, and she was looking for a designer that could also provide feedback on her site speed issues, which was impacting her reader’s experiences. She wants a cleaner layout, less clutter, and a theme to include options for eCommerce / online stores in the future.
She settled on Foodie Pro for her new theme.
In her admin panel, it was discovered that she has nearly 150 themes are installed on her server, which could be cluttering her database and slowing site speed, however, that cleanup is not in this current scope and will determine at the end of the site design what optimization efforts need to be prioritized.
Backup issues were the result of Redoux's files being too large. Jeanette provided some initial optimized services so that a full backup could be accomplished. Hourly services were billed as part of the total package. ($150 paid in full by Karen).

Change menu bar. Remove “How To’s since this is also covered in drop down Projects Gallery. Insert, Other Stuff, drop down menu: Good Time Charlies, Blogeur d’ invite (removed, per Karen) Menu, Move “Contact” over Menu, And last space “Subscribe” with a link to my subscription page Change “categories” bar to “Search” with a search plugin Please repeat Subscribe bar again at bottom of page -- (also added to the bottom of each post) Move BlogHer ads up to be under search bar (switch places with Dumpster Diving Series) -- Dumpster Diving is now beneath all ads. I would ask BlogHer for an additional ad 160 x 600 pillar ad -- it looks off center or lonely. So I centered the one you do have. Move “Mormon” tag and place under “Today’s Popular Posts” Google Anayltics or blog stats. I can only see rudimentary stats on SumoMe. Can you set up Google Analytics or other stats plugin so I can compare day, month, year, etc.? Also so I can see where traffic is coming from, where it is going, most popular posts.
