Compromise 2.0 by Free WordPress Themes (appears defunct since September 2013) provided the basis for the design. Archer Trading’s logo and company colour was incorporated into the header, along with the company name and tag line.
WP e-commerce provides a neat catalogue but without purchasing a Gold Shopping Cart users cannot search for products. As the owner only wants an online catalogue this will be rectified by modifying the code for the search button on the supplied front page for WordPress so that products can be searched as well as other categories of the site.
The owner can now create, edit and delete products, product categories and the Businesses For Sale and Specials sections.

Archer Trading’s website was completed as a project for Certificate IV in IT (Programming and Networking). The site makes little use of CSS.
All product images were taken by myself. The images were enhanced with drop shadows and other effects using GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program).
A future development under way is to store the products in a MySQL database so that customers can order products online.
The site can be accessed by going to http://www.archertrading.com.au/
