Kansas City Web Design Company IDP Launches New Website for Project One
Nov 21, 2016

Internet Design & Publishing, Inc., a Kansas City Web Design Company, completed a new website re-design project for Project One out of Denver, CO.

Project One has been a long time client of IDP.  This is the second website IDP has developed for the construction project management firm based in Denver.  The company was going thru some re-branding and the new website matches the new company brand.  The first web design project was built on Joomla CMS software.  The new KC web design project was built on WordPress content management system software.  Over the last 14 years Kansas City web design company IDP has built hundreds of websites and many of them in the past were built on Joomla.  Over the last 2-3 years IDP has focused on building WordPress web designs and converting over all of our old Joomla sites into WordPress sites.  We prefer WordPress websites because our clients like the content management system, the software is search engine friendly, the plugins are easy to install and are pretty stable and the software updates are easy to maintain and keep secure.

The new Kansas City web design project for Project One included graphic design work, web page mockups and layouts, content development, web development, Bootstrap responsive web design, home page banner slider rotator, project photo gallery, search engine optimization and web hosting.  On the Our People page we programmed a custom user interface that shows the entire team in boxes with short summaries, click to open each box to see blow up version of each employee.  The company services pages we organized into separate project photo galleries for each area.  Project One has completed a lot of successful, impressive projects and we wanted to feature them all.  We ended up building out over 50 project photo galleries.  Each of the sub pages feature large banner image shots.

Project One is a project management and owner’s representation firm that provides planning, oversight and implementation services for capital construction projects. Project One works with clients to build collaborative project teams and manage successful projects from inception through completion and beyond.  The new web design is clean, modern and attractive.  Check out the new site at www.project-1.com


Domain Name Migration and Web Hosting
The new web design project also included switching domain names and web hosting.  The company had always used www.projectoneis.com and wanted to switch to a new domain www.project-1.com.  It can be very tricky to launch a new web site on a new domain name.  You can hurt your search engine optimization.  The website software was switching from Joomla to Wordpress and we were switching domain names.  In order to change your website address you need to setup both domain names in a Google search console account.  Then you need to complete the steps provided by Google to change your web address.  If you skip this part you could harm your SEO rankings and lose all of your domain reputation history.  We also setup 301 re-directs to point all of the old Joomla URLs to the new WordPress URLs.  The link structure was completely different and we did not want to create any 404 web page not found pages in search results so we manually setup over 50 301 re-directs pointing all of the old pages to the new pages.

The Best WordPress Online Donation Plugins for Churches
Nov 01, 2016

I was recently asked to do some research and come up with a list of recommendations for online church tithing.

Give - https://givewp.com/

PROS:

Works with WordPress easily, good reviews and full support.  Stable.  Popular solution

Lots of Robust tools around donation online giving

Goal tracking for specific fund-raising efforts

You can purchase Add-ons that would allow most popular payment gateways like Stripe, PayPal, Authorize.net, etc.  Some of the add-on programs look really cool, lots of additional functionality that could be used.

https://givewp.com/addons/

Zero Commission Charges

Seems to be really well developed and really good documentation

CONS:

The free version comes with PayPal standard only.  Which means they leave your website and go to paypal to complete the transaction.

Basic bundle is $147 per year.  This comes with 17 premium addons and all of the main payment gateways like Stripe.

Plus bundle is $247 per year.  You have to purchase the Plus plugin to get recurring billing.

https://givewp.com/addon-bundles/



 

Seamless Donations - http://zatzlabs.com/project/seamless-donations/

PROS:

Works with WordPress easily, good reviews

Free and no commissions

Automatic repeating donations

Reporting and other robust features.  Add-on plugins available

CONS:

Only works with PayPal

They leave your website to donate and recurring donations are managed thru your PayPal account.  You fill out a basic submit form with your name and amount of donation, then you click a button that takes you to PayPal.



 

PayPal Donations - https://wordpress.org/plugins/paypal-donations/

PROS:

Add simple PayPal donation buttons to your website.  Low cost option.

Easy simple setup

CONS:

User leaves your website and goes to PayPal

Low tech option not much functionality



 

WP Charitable - https://www.wpcharitable.com/

PROS:

Same as others.  Popular and well developed.  Free if you connect to your PayPal account

More flexible for developers and custom programming.  More advanced

Lots of add-on plugins available.  Works with a lot of different WordPress plugins

CONS:

Looks like it is a little more difficult to setup

I don’t see recurring payment option

More of a fundraising plugin than church tithing plugin



 

Payment Gateway Fees and Details:

Braintree is a customer friendly payment gateway. There are no minimum or monthly fees, no hidden costs and the best part is the clear rate structure: After your first $50k, it’s 2.9% + $0.30 a transaction. Read more about Braintree’s pricing here.

Braintree is great for not-for-profits because of their first $50k zero rate offer. This can really save some money and help further empower your cause. Braintree is available for merchants in the United States, Canada, Australia, Europe, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and New Zealand.



Stripe has a very simple merchant fee policy. Every transaction is charged 2.9% plus $0.30 with NO monthly charges at all. Read more about Stripe’s merchant fees here. You can also read a comprehensive list of why Stripe believes it’s the best payment gateway available.

With excellent features, competitive rates, and wide ranging support it’s no wonder why more-and-more nonprofits, organizations, and personal causes are putting their trust in Stripe to process their online donations.
