Full-stack Developer for
A WordPress website with educational content. Embedded in the content of the pages, the website includes a reverse mortgage calculator plugin. This plugin gets the user inputs and does the calculations while feeding the information to Salesforce using the Salesforce API.

I focused on the theme design implementation, creating the content pages and calculator plugin, and integration with Salesforce.

News Portal Websites
Inside Retail is one of the most trusted retail industry publications globally targeting the retail industry, published by Octomedia, one of Australia's leading B2B publishers. What started as a weekly newspaper in 1971 is today a retail education hub featuring daily news, analysis, executive interviews, and more from their network of journalists and contributors.

I developed their online platform to publish free and premium articles. They have six websites that share a single system for authentication. Firebase authentication is used instead of a standard WordPress system. Users must purchase a membership to access premium content, and the Stripe API handles the subscription process. The email campaigns are sent via Emarsys and ActiveCampaign, so user data is sent to the platform via their API.

Directory Listing Website
Inside Franchise Business is a brand listing website with advanced search filters based on Australia. It has premium and free brand listings, whereas premium listings have features to make inquiries to their franchise.

ActiveCampaign API Integration
I developed an ActiveCampaign integration with Contact Form 7 as an add-on that helps extend subscription lists and collect unlimited leads. Users can easily add their contacts in ActiveCampaign when submitting their contact form.

Fake Sales Notification Plugin
Salert is an effective marketing tool designed to increase the conversion of site visitors into customers and it also has a feature to generate fake sales notifications to engage visitors, where this plugin can generate notifications without the WooCommerce plugin.

I developed this plugin by targeting eCommerce platform websites that want to increase sales by showing their sales notification—even if they are not selling much, they can show fake sales notifications to website visitors.

WordPress Themes
Authored several free themes on according to their coding standards and these themes can be used as multipurpose news and magazines and eCommerce sites.

I am constantly releasing updates for these themes to make them compatible with the latest WordPress version.

LMS Website
It is an LMS website with the option to manage courses in the back end, and teachers can access those contents after logging in to their accounts for specific roles. Premium teachers can access all the course lessons, whereas free teachers can only access limited courses.

Website Migration for the International Council for Canada Studies
The project involved the overall migration of their site built in standard PHP to WordPress. Migrated all the databases and pages of the old site to the new one and entirely changed the homepage design.

Harpke Family Farm
Harpke Family Farm is a WooCommerce-based website that sells its products online wholesale. The main feature is that the order can be placed from the back end with the delivery and pick-up date. The admin has a detailed report download system in the back end and all the orders are synced with Quickbook API.

The Beach House at Lakeside
The Beach House at Lakeside is a vacation rental website showing two lakeside cottages with all their facilities and details. Visitors can check all the property details and make reservations through the website.

Real Estate Website Development

Ten Rents is a real estate website built with Houzez WordPress theme where there are two different logins for the landlord and tenants. The landlord can list their properties on the website by registering their account. The tenant can view their listings, inquire about the property, and schedule an inspection time. The tenant can pay the landlord via their dashboard account on the site.

Avance Car Rental Service
I developed the website of Avance, a car rental service in Greece, for listing the vehicles and hiring system and the site is under the WordPress platform, which involves WooCommerce and third-party API integration. All the vehicles are being fetched from the API and integrated with WooCommerce to list them towards visitors. The system works with two-way communication between WooCommerce and third-party APIs.

Avance is a car rental service for Greece. They offer different category vehicles to their customers to hire for their purpose. Overall, visitors can choose their pickup and drop-off location, together with the date and available vehicles listed out—they can pick any vehicles easily as per their needs.

The standard CMS pages on the site are built with the Elementor page builder. It is a multilingual site, so the WPML plugin is used for switching the website to different languages. Also, there is Google Maps integration for locations.


A website where students could purchase a learning course according to their personality. The personality is assessed through answers to questions, and each user is assigned to a specific tutor. Stripe is used for subscribing to lessons, and the Calendly API is used for scheduling lessons according to the tutor's availability.

Astrology Site
An astrology website where visitors can fill up their personal details to get specific astrological information. The website is based on an API connected by one of the forms in the website. When visitors fill out the form, it sends their data to and gets results from that API. After that, a user is created automatically, their data is saved in the back end, and their results are shown on their profile page in front end.

Site Maintainence

I worked on a website that collects user data via HubSpot integration. They had an issue with connecting HubSpot that needed a quick fix. After that, I updated their site with all themes and plugins with the latest version.

Website Migration from WIX to WordPress
Scoreify was built on WIX, and the client wanted to move the entire website into WordPress. I set up a WordPress site and moved all the pages there. I also implemented page builder Elementor to create layouts for the homepage and other pages.

A Custom Plugin
A custom plugin I developed to display media files according to assigned user profiles. I worked with proxy servers as the client has IP restrictions. The overall site performance was checked and updated by WordPress.

Website Manager
HubSpot landing pages for a marketing client. I handled server-level redirection according to conditions 301 and 302. I also tracked working hours on Harvest as their platform. I did the overall performance check for the website.

Custom WooCommerce Site Development
A landing page for an upcoming website to showcase their product. I converted the Figma design into a website using the Elementor page builder. I also added custom animations and CSS code to make a website exact to the design flow.

Learning Platform Website
Pengrid 24 is an educational content site that I developed using WordPress. Its additional features include registration and user login, allowing registered users to upload and download content to the site, and responsive design.

WordPress/WooCommerce Developer for a Bottle Refill Site

A refill website for cleaning products, shampoos, and washing up liquids. Our website will be an eCommerce platform where users can purchase the products, request refills (which involves sending back the bottle and paying a lower price), or return their used bottles (and receive some credit). This will require us to handle bottle tracking and consider three different prices for each product: purchase price, refill price, and credit for the returned bottle.
