IDP recently launched a new WordPress web design project for Allegra Learning. Allegra Learning provides nursing and healthcare professionals CE credits online. This was a website re-design project. The client already had a web site that was working OK for selling and providing online learning but it was getting very dated and it was not responsive. The previous web development projects was built custom. The new site we converted into a WordPress website. The project included graphic design, web page mockups, home page slider, responsive development, custom programming, web development, WordPress development, CE Broker integration and E-Commerce.

The biggest component of this project was the learning management software (LMS). The LMS system provides the functionality for students to enroll in courses, take lessons and complete exams among other things. For this project we used the LearnDash LMS system. LearnDash is a WordPress paid plugin module that includes all of the standard LMS functionality. IDP was responsible for installing the plugin, configuring and customizing the skin and templates, setting up the curriculum and completion certificates. Our developers ended up doing a lot of custom programming on this project. There were some things that the LMS software solution did not do that we needed to add some custom programming to solve.
The biggest challenge of this project was taking the existing website database from the old system and merging it with the new WordPress LearnDash software system. The client already had a large e-commerce online LMS system with students, courses, course history, certificates and affiliates. All of the old data had to be imported and merged with the new LMS system. The student user accounts we were able to write a custom script to import into WordPress and they became WordPress / LearnDash users in the new system. The old course data and completed certificates data we had to get creative and do some problem solving. Data migration from an old site to a new site is often the most challenging and overlooked piece of a web project like this.
The e-commerce component of this project utilizes easy digital downloads. The affiliates portion of the project utilizes wp affiliates. LearnDash LMS system works very well with both of these plugins.
We were able to build the project in a way that all of the WordPress updates, LearnDash updates and other plugin updates can all be applied normally without breaking the site. There was a lot of custom programming that had to be completed to make this project successful. It is very important to build a site like this in such a way that WordPress software updates and plugin updates can be successfully installed.
IDP recently completed a new web development project for Community Buying Group. CBG is a long time client and IDP has done many projects for them in the past. This project involved re-building a custom PHP web application from scratch and building it on the Yii Framework. The original application was dated and showing its age. Originally it was built on a custom PHP framework. The new and improved application running on the Yii framework will be easier to develop and maintain going forward with future development. The project included e-commerce integration with Stripe, API integration with Salesforce, custom PHP development, Yii Framework development, submit form signups to join CBG, custom fields and memberships, estimate your savings graphical sliders, administrator control panel development and many other things that cannot all be listed out here! Sum it up to say this was a big, complicated custom PHP programming project.
One of the hardest parts of the project was integrating it with a WordPress frontend and setting up the application part to run in a sub-directory of WordPress. We ran into a lot of technical challenges on this project. The project was completed in 4-5 months. The final product is impressive. It is an enterprise level web application system. It runs on a Ubuntu 16.04 machine on PHP7 and Nginx, so it truly is the latest and greatest technology. Check out the new site at

IDP launched a new website design for Kids TLC this month. This was a pretty big undertaking. There are a lot of pages and content on the site and the client was going thru a re-write of most of the content and pages at the same time. The client had an existing site that had become very large and pieced together. It was getting hard to update and keep current with new technology. The website design project was a complete re-build from scratch. Kids TLC is a great Kansas City non-profit organization that transforms thousands of children's lives each year through innovative and successful psychiatric treatment, outpatient behavioral health, homeless teen outreach, autism and parent support programs. IDP is thrilled to work with our new client Kids TLC!
The website design project was a WordPress content management system responsive design job. We developed the new site on WordPress so the client can manage and maintain the site. The new website features a full width responsive design, home page banner slider, call to action buttons, drop down navigation menu, lots and lots of pages, language translation, social media integration, donation integration and a blog. Check out the newest web design from Internet Design & Publishing!
WordPress Web Hosting for New Web Site
IDP is also providing web hosting for the new site. We have been doing web hosting in Kansas City since 2003. WordPress hosting done correctly is harder than you might think. The software needs to be updated regularly and needs to be built in such a way that you can update the site without it breaking. The software needs to be secure. we recommend installing Sucuri Wordpress security plugin and going thru the hardening process to harden the file system. The website needs to be fast and you need to go thru some speed optimization to get the software running fast. The website needs to be setup for search engines and we recommend installing Yoast SEO module on the software, configuring the XML sitemaps, integrating with Google Webmaster account and Google Analytics.
If you need help with your web hosting or web design contact IDP! We love this type of work!
"I just wanted to take time to let you know how much we appreciate the web hosting / web design services you have provided us the past several years. I'll never forgot how concerned I was when my past web host went out of business and forced me to look elsewhere. I thought I had a good web host, but once I switched to IDP it wasn't long before I realized the quality of services IDP provides are far superior to those I had been receiving!
Since choosing IDP to be my webhost some 7+ years ago, you have performed services which have improved my search engine results to a level I never expected possible (i.e. #1 or #2 ranking on just about every pertinent search criteria)! "
"IDP helped to turn our good website into a great one, with their redesign resulting in a web traffic increase of 600% in the first three months. The team is knowledgeable, patient, and easy to work with - taking our ideas, bringing their own, and synthesizing our best thinking into reality. Our globally-oriented site now has the level of polish that it needed, making our content come alive and attracting much greater interest and word of mouth referrals. Thanks guys!"
"About 3 years ago we were searching for a new web design and SEO company, and when we put the word out we were looking 3 separate companies recommended IDP. In fact we had very few other recommendations. We have a unique direct sales strategy for our high end TV Furniture, TV Cabinets, and TV Consoles and IDP has helped us to market Performance Furniture locally as well as nationwide. Their approach to SEO is very straightforward where we know what is happening and can track our results. Very satisfied with IDP."
"IDP finally allowed us to have a quality website that reflects our company, message and high level of service we provide to our clients.
The process went smoothly and quickly and we are thrilled with the final results. I would recommend using IDP to any company with website needs."
"It was a pleasure working with IDP. They gave us a quote that was easy to understand and competetitively priced. Everything was completed on or before schedule and within budget. We made some additions/tweaks to the system during the process and to our delight they responded promptly and handled all of our concerns and helped us figure out how to accomplish our goals. Follow-up after the project has been excellent.
We will certainly look to IDP for our future needs and have already recommended them to several business associates and friends."
"IDP has become a very important piece of the marketing strategy for The Auto Clinic. IDP has given our company a strong presence on the internet. I continue to receive positive comments related our website design from our customers and associates in the Lee's Summit business community. Also, since IDP initiated their internet search engine advertising strategies, we have found more and more of our new customers are discovering our company through internet searching. Our positioning on the internet has allowed us to put our logo in front of our new and repeat customers. I have been very satisfied with my company's exposure for the dollars spent."
"I was satisfied with my firm's existing website when a friend recommended that I ask IDP to evaluate it. I decided that an evaluation wouldn't hurt, and I'm glad I did. IDP transformed our website from a generic, informational site into our second biggest revenue generator, only behind client referrals. The website has been so successful in generating new business that I have been able to substantially reduce marketing dollars spent elsewhere. In addition, IDP's fast response to requests for changes to the site is impressive. I recommend IDP to any company looking to grow its business and to better serve its existing customers."
