Tools We Use On Our Site

If you’re interested in how we put the site together or see something that you would like to use on your site, you’ve come to the right place.  Here’s a selection of the tools that we use to build and maintain the site.


  • X, the Theme – a very pretentious sounding affair, but it has a lot of great features baked in.  They recently added the opt-in box that we use to collect emails.  It’s worked well so far, eliminates yet another plugin, and we know it’s tested with our theme!
  • Akismet – eliminate comment spam.  Akismet does a good job of pushing the obvious spam into a folder where you can occasionally review and purge it while still giving you a quick review of legitimate comments.  The false positives are very rare.
  • W3 Total Cache – file and object caching to speed your site up.  W3 Total Cache queues up frequently requested files and database data in memory to eliminate slow disk IO to improve your site’s responsiveness.
