We wanted to create an online management system for our ISOB members and make some of the data visible in the public pages of our existing WordPress site.
Starting with data from a simple spreadsheet that we provided, Lunaria designed and built a management tool, fully integrated within WordPress.
The data about our Members is linked to the Companies that they own, trade as or work for, and there are a variety of different types of work undertaken by each, so it was a little more challenging than just a single table of data.
As the project brief developed, changes could be previewed in a staging/development site, identical to our Live site in most other respects.
Now that the system is up and running, we’re able to add to and update the information in a secure, web-based environment, using our existing WordPress credentials.
The whole project took about a month to complete and Lunaria were in continuous communication throughout, as each stage of the project was signed off.
No special skills or training were required, as the management tool uses standard web-based forms, familiar to most Internet users.
Overall, we’ve very pleased with the final product and would recommend Lunaria should you have a similar project requirement.

“Our McKenzie Mountaineering company web site was hosted with Moonfruit and we’d put some effort into getting good quality, relevant content for our visitors and clients. We ran up against some limits though. Some features of the Moonfruit content editor required a flash plugin, and the ability to control layouts and apply templates was somewhat limited. We know Grant and Lindsay personally: they are both active outdoor people and understood what we were looking for.
Grant organised our domain name transfers to Lunaria, and also registered a couple of additional domain names for us. He set up a new WordPress site and his assistance with content migration has been invaluable. As Lunaria are a small partnership business, the service is more personal than that offered by larger national or international tech companies. Having a friendly tech support person available on a Slack channel is a real bonus when you’re new to web development and digital marketing. I’d recommend Lunaria as small, friendly Scottish company with a great track record and portfolio of creative design and photography”

“In 2020, The Just Festival began a new partnership with Lunaria. Due to the pandemic, we followed the route of many organisations and needed to shift our content from live to online in a fast time-frame. Initially this felt overwhelming, but Lunaria saw us through it with great patience, flexibility and reassurance. Using their expertise we now have a new WordPress site (designed and hosted by Lunaria), with good functionality to Eventbrite for ticketing and charitable donations. The events themselves were held as Zoom webinars, with the live recordings made available on our YouTube channel within a few days. Lunaria’s support and guidance ensured a smooth pathway from website and social media to Eventbrite and finally to Zoom for the live events. It was a steep learning curve for us, but the success of the online Festival means we are confident in continuing our digital journey with Lunaria into 2021 Festival, and including ongoing year round events through our new page Just Platform.”

“Lunaria have hosted my web services since 2007. Over that period, they have been very reliable and any issues that have arisen have been responded to and resolved quickly and efficiently. In 2019, Lindsay re-designed my web site from top to bottom, migrating content from an existing bespoke site to WordPress. I needed something that would impress my client base in the television industry and Lindsay’s expertise in graphics and design was invaluable, culminating in a slick, branded site that meets modern web standards”.

“The UK Society for Computing and Technology in Anaesthesia (SCATA) has been a client of Lunaria Ltd for more than ten years. Over that period, Grant in his role as webmaster has built a comprehensive set of bespoke online tools to manage our membership database. In addition, the site undergoes regular updates to keep it in line with the latest web standards of usability and security. SCATA receives good technical support in resolving any issues and in efficient content management. More recently, Grant has built a bespoke online meeting management system that covers delegate registration, payments, programme management, meeting evaluation and feedback. Lunaria also maintain an online mailing list for SCATA using the popular PHPList open source mailing tool.”

“We moved our aging site over to Lunaria a few years back and the team re-vamped and made it modern and current. It now looks and functions much better. The team at Lunaria are very helpful and skilled at hosting the site and respond quickly to any change requests. I would recommend Lunaria for small to medium sized businesses looking for design and a web master”

“Lindsay and Grant took the time to sit down with me, chat through my requirements and listened to my ideas about how I wanted my site to look and function. They not only took on board what I had to say but chucked lots of their own creative and technical ideas in to the mix. The result is something that showcases my work and is easy for me to update. Importantly I now have a website that I feel really comfortable with. “
“Having worked with Lindsay Snedden and Lunaria on and off for seventeen years, I regard him as an integral part of my creative family, producing eye-catching artwork for print, branding and production photographs. I particularly value his advice, the collaborative nature of his approach and his understanding of the narrative around how best to visually represent my work. Frankly he’s the best!”
Writer, Performer, Director
“From working with Lindsay and the team on a number of projects I can safely say Lunaria provide an outstanding, professional and efficient service. Lunaria have the knowledge and expertise to quickly come up with excellent contemporary designs, often with only a vague concept as a starting point. They have gone above and beyond to meet challenging timelines and accommodate last minute revisions with alacrity. I can’t recommend them more highly.”
