Website Redesign!

After several months of work, we are proud to introduce a redesign of the Kim’s Academy website!  Improvements include:

  • Completely replacing the old website (which was static HTML-based) with a solution that uses WordPress as the underlying foundation.  For those non-technical, this is Good Thing and should allow us to make future updates with less effort in the future.
  • Utilizing a Responsive template.  This means the website will automatically adjust the content you see to fit the laptop, tablet, or smartphone device you are viewing it on.
  • Improvements to each Kim’s Academy location page
    • A Google Map view.
    • Clearer presentation of schedules.
  • An experimental “Schedule Finder” feature.  With this feature you can look at a summary view of schedules from all Kim’s Academy locations and filter on specific class types, days, times, or locations.  For example, let’s say you’re interested in attending a Kim’s Academy class but only have Tuesday’s and Thursday’s opened.  With the Schedule Finder you can filter on these two days and see what class locations and times fit your request!
  • News and Announcements posted to the website will provide Google Map views and event information you can add to your calendars with one simple click.
  • A Search feature (look for the magnifying glass icon to the right of the main menu bar), allowing you to quickly find content on the website.
  • An easier way for us to add social links to popular sites such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and SnapChat.  Kim’s Academy Instructors – if you have any social links you’d like to add to your location please let us know!

There are still a few minor “fit and finish” items to complete, but overall we think you’ll enjoy the experience!  If you have any feedback or comments, feel free to send them to webmaster@kimsacademy.com.

Kamsahamnida,

Senior Master Robert Stankey, 6th Dan
