"Dear Eduard, I will admit this. Your work has done wonders to our product and I feel we've got the best of the site with some amazing presentation."

It's one of the last projects that I'm still working on. It's an HTML/CSS template coded and designed by me. The template is created using Twitter Bootstrap, PHP, and Ajax for the contact form and some external jQuery plugins like Packery.

Custom Responsive Design for VirtueMart Joomla Component

http://airsport.ru/catalog
Implemented a custom design for a VirtueMart component and all its modules on a Joomla website based on the existing Joomla template used for other pages on the website. All the work is done using Joomla override techniques.

Free WordPress Plugin

https://wordpress.org/plugins/latest-posts-with-thumbnails-and-ads/
A simple WordPress plugin that shows the latest posts from a WordPress website.

It also has several options:
1) To choose a vertical and horizontal view with the carousel.
2) To choose to display HTML and JavaScript ads between every X posts based on user need.

WordPress Website, SEO, and Blogging

This was previously my company that I started from scratch. I created the website designs and installed, managed, and configured Apache with Nginx as a reverse proxy. Also, I completely build the company website using WordPress.

Custom WordPress Plugin

A WordPress plugin that needs to be installed into websites to work. It first adds a post thumbnail to the RSS feed, and then the two websites can exchange their latest posts by displaying a list of posts with a thumbnail, a title, and the link to the post on the other website.

The plugin source code is not public anywhere, as it was created only for personal use.
