Diving Eagle Necktie E-commerce Website

Talents Showcased: Server-side Development, Interactivity, Design

  • Product Information is stored in a MySQL database, and is retrieved and displayed through hand-coded PHP.
  • The site has hand-coded PHP that allows differing levels of authentication: all users can view and purchase ties, but administrators can add, update, or remove ties from the product list. If you want to try this out for yourself, log in with 'boss' as the username and password.
  • Utilization of CSS Grids on the products page allows for a flexible, responsive view of the products.

  • A custom theme was built to give the site a nice, slick appearance, but the theme is not exclusive to a garden blog and could be used with other sites as well.
  • Several plugins, such as Max Mega Menu, MetaSlider, and wpDiscuz, were added to enhance functionality, implementing a user registration page, as well as a form that allows users to send an email to the site's manager.
