The Bond Experience Goes Live

We enjoy ALL of our projects but this one was especially fun.

First of all, we worked with David Z. who is one of the biggest James Bond memorabilia collectors on the planet. We had the pleasure of viewing his collection and it was totally cool.

Secondly, the passion behind Bond is really something of a phenomena and to play a part in it is very gratifying.

And lastly, the site utilized features that we implemented for the first time, such as an embedded Vimeo playlist, a categorized image gallery and an Amazon affiliated store front.

The site went live two days ago and already it has attracted more than 15,000 visits.

That’s right…15,000 in two days.

So if you like James Bond, check out The Bond Experience.

And if you like the site and want one too, by all means, contact us.

The Beauty of Responsive Design

Ahhh…responsive design.

Even the name is soothing.

The technology is even better.

No more building multiple websites for web and mobile.

No more having to put on your reading glasses to view a website on a phone.

A solution for the masses.

Following is an example of a site we recently completed that has a wonderful responsive design.

Here is how the website is viewed in a standard browser:

An Ecommerce Website Built by this Philadelphia Web Agency

There is only one reason why we haven’t blogged in six months. Holy moly, have we been busy!

We have been working on such an interesting range of products. From an inventory management system, to an event management system, to a plethora of websites, we have been cranking out work in 2014. Yes, we love being busy.

Today, I’d like to introduce a site we’ve been working on for several months. It’s a full ecommerce site, based in WordPress, utilizing a fully customized WooCommerce plugin. Jennifer’s Way Bakery is a small, amazing retail bakery in New York City. But they are going big time by opening a 13,000 square food facility so they can ship their goodies nationwide.

And they called on Altera Web to create their online presence.

They have been wonderful to work with and I wish them all of the success in the world.

Finally…an automatic WordPress backup solution that works

Here’s how it usually works when trying to find a solution to back up your WordPress website or WordPress blog.




Ok. You get the point.

At Altera Web, a Philadelphia web agency, we have tried pretty much every WordPress backup solution on the market.

First, we tried the free plugins. All I’ll say is that they are free for a reason.

Either they weren’t dependable. Or they only backed up the site pages and not the database. Or they backed up the database, but not the plugins. Or they backed up the plugins, but not the images.

So free is out.

Then after much, much research, we came upon Blog Vault. And we exhaled.

Why the praise?

  • You get a 30 day free trial. And I mean free. They don’t even ask for a credit card and you can back up multiple sites.
  • You can back up multiple WordPress sites from one dashboard.
  • It backs up EVERYTHING (database, files, themes, plugins, images, comments, etc.).
  • It stores your data on their servers (Amazon S3) so you don’t need to worry about keeping things local.
  • It encrypts the data so it’s safe.
  • It allows you to easily restore your site.
  • It allows you to change hosts very easily.
  • Lastly, they are affordable.
