Mags Direct, New Online Magazine Shop


I’ve been lucky enough to combine my WordPress experience with my day job for the first time, creating a brand new ecommerce website to sell the UK’s top magazines.  The concept is to sell single copies of magazines at their coverprice (same as shop price), but posted 1st class to the customers door, for FREE!   No having to buy a long subscription, just get the issue you want, when you want it (we’ll hold back issue stock as well as the current issue, and you can also pre-order magazines!).

It’s built on a WordPress backbone, with strengthened security and a custom theme.  I’ve even created a lot of the graphics!

So if you like a good read, check out, cheers!

Webmaster of this and many websites over the years. I've been a Senior developer (Java JEE and Oracle DB, specialising in SEAM/JSF/Hibernate web development). Ex Lead Developer at New Scientist magazine, where I worked on creating a new WordPress based website, using almost 100% custom created widgets, plugins and theme. My own projects include websites created in WordPress and custom written with PHP and MySQL, and have my own dedicated linux server to run them from. Currently proud of; Mags Direct - a site I created for my work at the Frontline Group. An online magazine shop, which I created with almost zero budget within a week (since had a full theme upgrade). Found at Married, one cat. Beer fanatic (wife probably says bore) - real ales and craft beers. I have spent for too much on home brew gear, I create full mash craft beers. I spend a lot of time either going to gigs or organising them - I'm part of a small bunch of friends putting on DIY Punk shows called "The Scary Clown Presents..." our website can be found here; Also a fan of the local footy team - UP THE POSH!
