Welcome

Websites are a professional necessity in today’s highly competitive virtual world. With just the click of a button, anyone can buy anything from anywhere. Information on is-fotan-rightliterally every subject is mere seconds away.

So how are you going to make sure your website comes out of the tangle on top? How do you ensure that what you have to offer is going to stand out in a crowded global marketplace?

In an era where the average person does the majority of their business with people (or non-people) they have never even met, I say the best way to move your business forward is to take a step back.

Fotan Web and Graphic Design offers a global reach with a personal touch. The problem with huge companies is that most aren’t able to resolve issues quickly (according to an iPage review). I believe in doing things the old-fashioned way–in knowing names, shaking hands, telling a few jokes and in truly listening. If you want your business to be a part of the future but like the way things were done in the past, please contact me. At the very least you’ll talk to a real person, and you might even make a new friend.

UCC Accreditation WordPress Blog

I've been on contract working as webmaster for Umpqua Community College for quite a while now and one of the things they asked me to do was to take their Accreditation blog and clean it up.  Before I got to it it was a stock WordPress theme and didn't look anything like UCC

Require Login For Single WordPress Page

| WordPress Plugins

By default, anyone who comes to your WordPress website can see any page on that website.  What if you want your website to be open to everyone, except you really need to have a page or two that only registered, logged in users see?  Example?  A company intranet, a calenda

Schola Antiquae Vocis

| Art and Music

This was a singing group my mom belonged to.  As you can probably imagine, I didn't have to try real hard to get the job working on this site.  Of course, I also didn't get paid much for it.  I think it was a pretty nice design though.  At the time, the circles and stuff

One-Click WordPress Installer

So, I install a lot of WordPress.  It gets painful going to wordpress.org, downloading the latest stable version, unzipping it then uploading the zillion files up to the server through FTP.  Especially if you're not on some crazy fast internet connection.  Personally, my

This is a site I just finished.  It's a custom WordPress conversion.  I know, I know.  I've done a bunch of them now.  This on had to include a way to embed a special client application served from a secure server inside the WordPress framework.  Tech stuff aside, it re

In my new day job, I came across a problem today that I had never seen.  The application I'm working on requires an inordinate amount of JavaScript (in the form of jQuery).  Basically I'm display large amounts of data from a database in a graphical form using jQuery Spider

Winston Area Community Partnership

| Self-Managed Websites

This is actually the second version of this website.  When I did the first, they didn't have much budget and didn't really know how much they would use their website.  They asked for a pretty static site and, to be honest, WordPress hadn't really become a functional Conten

Sadler Aircraft Blog

| WordPress Blogs

Sadler's website needed a way to be kept updated, but the original design was 100% Flash.  No good for quick, easy updates.  (I hate Flash, if I haven't mentioned that…)  A custom blog seemed like just the thing.  This was before WordPress was as easy as it is now.  C

This was my first PHP-based site.  Took me days and days to do what I can do in about 5 minutes now.  Gotta learn somewhere though, right?  The design is horribly dated by today's standards, but back in 2003, or so, it was quite nice.  The PHP included a small database t
