As a young boy in California, Dale painted boats & nautical scenes. He and his wife Anne owned and lived aboard a 40′ ketch for seven years while living in Newport Beach, CA in the 70’s. His latest original oils depict early 19th Century Marine Subjects.
Anne Gallon approached me about this project. She wanted to set up a second website for Dale to show off his nautical artwork. I used WooCommerce to setup a store-like website but swapped out the Add to Cart buttons for Contact Us buttons which bring up a modal to with a contact form in it. Users contact Gallon Nautical Art about buying the pieces displayed on the site.
Since there are no transactions on the site, there wasn’t much to plug-in or add. Just added the usual suspects when it came to plug-ins: JetPack, All-in-One SEO, Contact Form 7, WordFence, ect. As I do with all sites, I got it Google and Bing verified through their webmaster programs.
