How we made the site

 

The website was built using WordPress.com which is an online based website building site. The site allowed us to all to contribute at the same time, meaning we could be working on certain aspects of the site together. WordPress allowed us to have full control over the site, allowing us to change fonts, images and themes, meaning we could really personalise the site to fit our desires.

To make the process easier we used a piece of software called MAMP (MAC, Apache, MySQL and PHP) or if working on a PC WAMP (Windows,  Apache, MySQL and PHP) these are both open source platforms to host desktop based sites from, the platforms allows the user to get a clearer and more accurate representation of the site
