Corporate WordPress Theme Build for Phoenix Business Leaders

A custom WordPress theme and event booking system for corporate leadership

In 2019 I was hired by Pretty Clever design studio in Bournemouth to develop a custom WordPress theme with an events booking system for Phoenix Leaders.

Phoenix Leaders

This was a challenging project, with complex animations and transition effects, used on the home page and main fly-out menu. The page template modules were built into a backend page builder using flexible ACF layouts, allowing Phoenix Leaders full control over updating content.

Flexible layout page builder

Phoenix Leaders can access WordPress CMS and select from block modules that can be re-ordered on the page using drag and drop interface:

ACF Flexible Layouts

Creating new landing pages, and updating existing content is a breeze using the page builder I developed with ACF flexible layouts.

Events booking system

Phoenix Leaders events required the option to list upcoming events and make them bookable, with the ability to take payment using a credit or debit card.

The WordPress theme has a CPT for "events" type and all event posts have ACF options that allow administrators to make specific events bookable:

ACF Booking Options

A bookable event has the option to add a booking price, number of seats/spaces and VAT amount. When a user books an event they can add their attendees and this data is passed to a secure payment form for processing:

Gravity Forms Events Booking

I built the booking system using Gravity Forms REST API with custom functionality for processing online payments with Stripe and EU VAT calculations.

Attendees can complete the form and once payment has been processed an automated email notification is sent to them with details of the event booking. A script updates the new total number of attendees stored in a custom field for that event.
