Recovery Wire assists those who have been impacted by addiction. Until the end of 2015, the site ran a bi-monthly publication. Past issues can still be viewed on the site.

I have been working with Recovery Wire since early 2014 when the site was running on the Megamag WordPress theme from Themeforest. While it is a good theme, there was much more the site owner wanted out of her site than this theme could give her in the long term. So a complete revamp of this site was completed in November 2014.

The current incarnation is built on the Rigel WordPress theme from Themeforest. It’s newspaper layout is perfect to showcase the many articles and posts this site offers, and the page layouts are great too for other content. And although the theme itself came with a homepage slider, we opted to continue with the Meta Slider plugin used with the old theme as it gives more flexibility to display ads and other content as well as posts.

Ads are manually posted to the site and are handled by the Ad Rotate plugin. Smart Donations takes care of collecting donations made to the site to keep it active and free.

Future plans for this site include ecommerce with WooCommerce linking to Amazon, ability for authors to auto-post articles, and a forum.
