Responsive Web Design Launched for Summit Strength
Jan 20, 2017

With the Kansas City Chief's Playoff Loss it was a tough week at IDP.  Life must go on and website development must also go on.  So we went ahead and launched another new responsive web design this week.  This time it was for Summit Strength Physical Therapy in Lee's Summit, MO.

Summit Strength is a long time web design client with IDP, going back over 10 years.  Over the last decade we have re-designed their website three times.  It is a great honor to be able to retain a web design client for a long time and re-design their website over time.  Thank you Summit Strength for your business!  By the way, Summit Strength happens to provide the best physical therapy services in the Kansas City and Lees Summit area.

Back to the responsive web design project.  The new mobile friendly responsive design was built on WordPress using the Bootstrap framework.  Our process is pretty simple.  We work with the client to develop graphic design mockups of the web design.  We do not use pre-made WordPress templates.  Custom graphic design work is done to develop a unique and professional responsive web design that represents the company brand.  Once the web design mockups are approved our web developers develop and build the WordPress website.  We setup a beta site for development and skin the site.  The client provides content and feedback.  We complete all of the pages and test the responsive web design.  Finally, we launch the new website and host it in most cases.  IDP has been hosting Summit Strength websites and email for over 10 years.  Check out the new responsive web design!

What is Responsive Web Design?
Responsive web design is the idea that a website should respond to the screen size of the user. A responsive template is a flexible grid and layout so that it can respond to different screen widths for different devices.  The images and text on a responsive design scale in size depending on the device being used.  Text and images scale down on mobile.  Traditional web design focused on desktop web design.  Responsive web design accounts for desktop, tablet and mobile devices.  Chances are if your website is over 3 years old it probably needs to be re-built into a responsive web design template.  You can learn more on our responsive web design page.

IDP Develops New Websites for European Companies
Jan 02, 2017

IDP recently completed three website projects in Europe.  The websites specifically were for insurance companies in Norway, Sweden and Germany.  In 2017, three more websites will be developed for additional European locations.  The project involved developing one mobile responsive WordPress template and then duplicating that Website for all of the various countries.  The company wanted the same design, layout and branding used for all of the websites.  The logo and content is unique for each site.  The three websites can be seen here:


One of the requirements for the project was multi language translation.  The websites are in English and the local country languages as well.  We developed the websites using the Polylang Multi Language plugin.  The Polylang plugin allows you to develop the duplicate pages in different languages and manage them easily thru the CMS.  The plugin includes the functionality to detect your browser language preference and automatically load the web page in that language.  It also has a language drop down menu in order to switch between languages manually.  We did not use any automatic language translation software because it often does not translate well enough for a professional corporate web site.
Virtual Private Server Web Hosting
The project also included building and setting up a custom VPS server for the client.  One private virtual server was setup in order to consolidate all of the sites on one web server for web hosting.  IDP was responsible for building the private VPS server and we are hosting it within our IDP web hosting environment.  IDP has been hosting websites since 2003.  We continue to invest in our web hosting environment in order to make it fast, secure, redundant and reliable.  Our virtual web hosting environment runs on a VMWare VCenter cluster of servers.  Our data center is at Netstandard data center in Kansas City.  Our backups run on R1Soft Enterprise backup software.  Many web design companies no longer offer web hosting and they outsource it to a third party.  IDP has done the opposite.  We continue to invest in our web hosting environment and we offer full service web hosting and VPS server hosting.  We do everything for you so that you can concentrate on running your business.
