Project Description

The original incarnation of What the Nexus was designed long before the game was set to release. So as it got closer to the game’s launch day, I felt that the website looked a bit dated, and needed a redesign. I had about a year’s worth of experience working with WordPress and running fan sites that I wanted to apply to this new version of What the Nexus.

Divi Customization

Of course, being me, I wasn’t about to just slap a theme on a website and call it a day. No! I had to customize it and make it my own! Don’t get me wrong, the base Divi is incredibly sexy and great. But I needed it to be even better.

I replaced the default slider module with the more powerful Revolution Slider. I added special code to make the dropdown menu animated. I integrated Google AdSense so I could generate a passive income from advertising. I didn’t do too much in changing the look and feel of the theme, because Divi was perfect for a sleek, futuristic website. But I definitely added some cool features and pushed the limits of what Divi, and WordPress in general, can do.
