After creating The Karass Inn’s logo I set to work creating a website for them. They used checkfront.com to handle the booking side of things so I was left to simply create the presentation side.
I used the Make Theme with only slight modifications to the CSS. Mainly to create the pop-ut Book Now button. The site looks great on mobile too:
The address, phone, and email at the top work incredibly well on mobile. By using proper Uniform Resource Identifier schemes with the links available applications will launch when they are clicked. You’re probably already familiar with mailto: which almost all email links use, it looks like this:
While the phone uses tel: like so:
So when you’re on a phone and click the link it automagically launches the phone application and makes the call.
I love being able to add these little details!

I was recently asked to set up a website that was managed under an existing WordPress Multi-site. The idea here is that a site is created via the single install of wordpress on domain-A.com but is accessed by visiting domain-B.com.
It’s actually pretty simple. I followed the tutorial from WPengine.com.
- A WordPress Multi-site (with subdomain setup set to false)
- Cpanel access
- Access to the target domain nameserver
- Point nameservers for the target domain to the proper place
- Install WP MU Domain Mapping plugin to target WPMU site
- In your cpanel add the target domain to parked domains
- Make the site you wish to redirect in WPMU
- Configure that site in the
First you set the domain’s nameserver to the target server’s name servers, which typically look something like this:
Now you’ll need to install the WordPress MU Domain Mapping plugin. You’ll need to network activate it and follow the installation steps on the plugin page.
- Move sunrise.php into wp-content/. If there is a sunrise.php there already, you’ll just have to merge them as best you can.
- Edit wp-config.php and uncomment or add the SUNRISE definition line. If it does not exist please ensure it’s on the line above the last “require_once” command.
define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' );
Now we add the new domain to parked domains in Cpanel.
- Under “Create a New Parked Domain” enter the domain name you want to add to your network.
- Click the “Add Domain” button.
- It should add the domain to the list of parked domains and under “Redirect to” it will say “not redirected”. That is OKAY.
You might need to set up a wildcards if you are using subdomains… Peep the plugin install instructions for more info.
Then on the WordPress site setup your new site (or existing one).
You’ll be adding it to the Network > Settings > Domains area.
To find the site ID go to your site list and check the edit URL for the string ‘id=5′ (or what ever number it is)
That should do it. Now visit your domain and behold your site there yet still part of the same network.
