Good Shepherd Catholic Regional School

We used a third-party WordPress theme that could be customized to fit the needs of the new Good Shepherd Catholic Regional School. Each teacher has their own unique page that can be used to share class announcements. We embedded a Google calendar on the site in order to keep parents informed of upcoming events.

Client Testimonial

“Partnering with Kim and Jason Coleman of Stranger Studios for our school web page was a “home run” for us. The Good Shepherd Catholic web page is a wonderful design and extremely user friendly. Parents and faculty members have commented how awesome it is. Kim and Jason always get back to us in a timely manner if we have a question.”—Emily Mullen, Technology Department

Neiger LLP

Neiger LLP came to us looking to move their website from static HTML files to the WordPress CMS. We worked with them to port their old design to a WordPress theme, adding some improvements along the way.

Stranger Studios supported this website through

  • Implemented a WordPress Theme Based on Their Existing Site
  • Installed Third Party Plugins and Our Old URLs Plugin for SEO
  • Setup Google Analytics for Traffic Reporting
  • Improved Hosting on Our Shared Servers

The new site is easily editable by the Neiger LLP team. This along with our cheaper (but better) hosting option for them will save them money and time.

We also changed the URL structure of the site to a WordPress default that is better for Search Engine Optimization (SEO). We used our “Old URLs” plugin to preserve traffic and “Google Juice” coming in from the old links (e.g. linking about.html to /about/).

Kim’s sister came to us with an idea for a website to help people make everyday decisions. Jason combined her idea with his own love for decision matrices (developed while working as a business consultant) to create the TopWhatever decision making engine.

The site at is a fully functional prototype and is already helping a few people make decisions. The site can be marketed and worked into a business or the technology could be used as part of a larger website.
