The Black Rose website is a gothic and alternative clothing online store.
Back in 2012, this old website was still running on a custom ecommerce platform that was not coping very well with the thousands of products the business had grown to sell. What the client needed was an easy-to-use CMS to maintain his shop, take orders etc...
I chose to use OpenCart for various reasons:
- User-friendly admin interface.
- Open source and free.
- Easily extendable.
In 2015, the site went through a redesign to become responsive and mobile-friendly, as well as a major OpenCart's version upgrade.
- Tools: OpenCart, PHP/HTML/CSS/JS, XML vQmod
- Role: Back-end and front-end development
