Hunter Sotheby’s International Realty Website Wins Award

27 April 2012 | Website Design

We’re thrilled to learn that the site we created for Hunter Sotheby’s International Realty has just been awarded “Best Real Estate Agency Website – Thailand” at the International Property Awards! Congratulations to the whole Zighead team for their efforts on the site.  Of course, a huge amount of credit goes to the Hunter Sotheby’s team for managing the site so well since it went ‘live’ back in September 2011.

Built on a WordPress framework, one of the website’s key features is its AJAX-driven search/sort/filter functionality which allows visitors to narrow down their choices with minimal delay.  Variable size image galleries, automatically generated PDF and printable listings, Google maps, videos and virtual tours are just a few of the additional features that have made the site such a success.

This is the second year in a row that a site built by Zighead Communications has been recognized at the International Property Awards. In 2011, Phillips Property received “Highly Commended Real Estate Agency Website – Thailand”.

This infographic by Colin Harman has been around quite a while, but because its so well-designed and accurate we thought we’d share it again. And yes folks, it applies equally well to web design as it does to graphic design (or bridge building, for that matter).

16 April 2012 | Website Design, WordPress

If you’ve worked with WordPress for any length of time, you’ve seen the WordPress update nag.

wordpress update nag

As an administrator, this is a great little alert to remind you to upgrade your WordPress installation to the latest version and take advantage of all the great new features or important fixes that are part of each new edition. But do non-admins really need to see it? Not if they can’t initiate an upgrade by themselves. Continue reading »
