AEI Dish Inc. is a Dish Network regional installer for satellite TV and satellite Internet.  AEI Dish Network has been in business since 1997.

The website was developed on WordPress with Thesis, with heavy JavaScript (with jQuery) and PHP customizations.


The three feature boxes and sidebar on the right are instituted via the Improved Include Page plugin.


Other features include:

  • Custom font for headers is implemented via Cufon, and incorporated using the WP-Cufon plugin
  • Header image is specified via a custom field, so each page can have its own unique header
  • Dynamic drop-down menus are CSS-only based, with a small jQuery solution for potential IE problems
  • Yoast Breadcrumbs plugin modifed to display slugs instead of page titles

The carousel is uses the jCarousel Lite jQuery plugn, and I hand-coded the entire functionality.  All code and content are stored in the WordPress page and not in any back-end file, so upgrading is not an issue.




The accordion uses the Hackadelic Sliding Notes plugin for WordPress.

The sidebar on the left is also implemented via Improved Include Page, so each page can have its own unique sidebar.
