Website Documentation

  • Create a new post in the WordPress dashboard.
  • Insert copy into editor right beneath the title – you will not need to open Elementor at all 🙂
  • You’ll notice a new setting at the very bottom that asks if this blog contains a SharpSpring form. If it does, click yes. If not, click no. If the new post does include a form, you will be able to add a custom CTA/Button CTA to go along with it. Both of these need to be filled out as the form is a popup now!
  • In order to display the form you will need to create a new Elementor block. This can be done by clicking Enter after the copy. You’ll see a + icon appear on hover, allowing you to search for a new block. Once clicked, search for Elementor Library.
  • Once the Elementor block has been added, a list of all the templates used on the site will populate. If you scroll down you’ll notice there are quite a few labeled SharpSpring. Click the one that fits your blog.
  • Additionally, you can add a featured image, category, and author.
  • Remember, don’t forget to click Update as you go to ensure changes are being saved!
  • Once all these steps are done, make sure to check the page. If everything looks correct, you are good to go!
  • In order to add a team member, you will need to go into Elementor. This can be done by navigating to the YMC Team page and clicking on Edit With Elementor in the black topbar.
  • There are a few steps to setting up a new member. First, hover on an existing person and click duplicate. Drag the person to the next available column. If a new row needs to be created, you can right click and do the same on any existing row. Second, change name, title, and photos. The normal image is changed by clicking on any team member box > Style tab > Front > Image. The second (silly image) is changed by clicking on team member box > Style tab > Back > Image
  • Note: The back image has an orange background and is a perfect square at 350x350px. 
  • Click Update.
  • Once the new team member has been added the last step is to link to their bio. Navigate back to main WordPress dashboard. Hover on Templates (on left navigation bar) and click Popups. You’ll notice each staff member has their own. If you hover on any team member you are able to clone it by clicking on Happy Clone. A duplicated version of a previous team member will appear at top. Change the name of the new popup and save.
  • Once the new popup has been created, hover and click Edit with Elementor. Change the image, title and copy, then click Update.
  • Lastly, navigate back to the YMC Team page. Click on the box that new team member is in. Click on the Content tab and find the Wrapper Link field.
  • Click on Popup (with wrench icon next to it) and search for new team member popup you created.
  • Once the new team member has been selected click Update.
  • Navigate to the YMC Team page and check to make sure everything is working correctly.
  • Navigate to WordPress Dashboard and click on Posts.
  • You’ll notice the category, Teal Paper.
  • Create new post and assign it to the Teal Paper Category.
  • Set featured image
  • At very bottom, under Teal Paper Download, upload file.
  • Click Update.
  • View page to make sure everything looks correct and button is linked.

Step One

The graphs themselves on the Staff and Client DISC pages were built in Canva. All you need to do is drag and drop in the new staff/client to their correct location on the graph and link their photo to their profile (from the media library on the site). You’ll find the canva links below:

Staff Disc
Client Disc

Note: The changes you make will automatically appear on the site as well so the script will not ever have to be updated. You do not need an account to edit.

Step Two

Navigate to the appropriate DISC page on the website itself, open Elementor, and scroll down to the table under the graph. Here you can create a new row with the staff/client image, title, and score. The score can also be linked to the DISC profile uploaded in the media library.

Let's Get Started!

Dexter Ochoa

Development Assistant

When it comes to blending logical thinking and creative problem solving, Dexter’s abilities are undeniable! Beginning his career as a Web Developer, he’s no stranger to the wide world of Marketing and Advertising. Calling Biñan City in the Philippines home, Dexter has a burning desire to visit the Alpine peaks and valleys of Switzerland. While that journey may be far off, he is still no stranger to international travel. While visiting Japan, he was able to enjoy his favorite delicacy: Sushi and Sashimi. He also learned unexpected facts about Japanese Yen, specifically that it has special markings for the blind to know its value!

Living life by his motto to “Do good even if the world is unfair,” Dexter would also advise his younger self, “It’s hard, but you’re doing good!” Whether he’s enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning or the occasional Pale Pilsen in the evening, Dexter is eager to work with the talented professionals of YMC, and we’re just as eager to add his talent to the team as well! His marketing words of wisdom? “Be creative, and just do what you want!”

Andrew Wyche

Copywriter

Hailing from the NC state capital (that’s Raleigh if you didn’t know), Andrew is YMC’s Copywriter extraordinaire. That’s why he knows that “The verb form of ‘reconnaissance’ is ‘reconnoiter.’ The former is, strictly speaking, a noun.” Seriously, he knows his words and he’ll use those words to get bold and weird (in a good way) with his copy. Fuelled by a love for pasta, shellfish, a good single malt, or a meal consisting of all three, Andrew navigates life with a motto engraved in his heart: “Choose kindness. Always.” It is this guiding principle that has led him to explore the realm of marketing, driven by a desire to connect with people in meaningful ways. As he continues to chase his dreams, one bucket list item stands out above the rest – a pilgrimage to Scotland. With his heart set on adventure and his pen poised for creativity, Andrew’s journey is far from over.

Alex VanHaasteren

Senior Web Developer

Alex is YMC’s Senior Web Developer and, as the title suggests, she is an absolute pro! While she initially started in graphic design – working long and hard to expertly bring concepts to life – she also felt drawn to technology and applying her natural ability to problem solve. Web Development proved the perfect blend of her creative passion and technical savvy.

When Alex is out with friends – including her YMC colleagues – she’s up for Greek cuisine or some good pulled pork BBQ washed down with Diet Coke. Or an Old Fashioned, if the occasion demands. Someday, she hopes to go to Africa on a safari. Hopefully she’ll see a giraffe in the wild, because – as she’s pointed out – its neck is too short to reach the ground!

When she isn’t jamming out to T-Swift, she’s happy to impart some marketing words of wisdom, “Aim to create something unforgettable.” For day-to-day inspiration, she would remind you of two fundamental truths: You decide your happiness, and Ice cream is its own food group—not just a dessert.
