This is my business website. I’ve been doing Zen Cart modifications (and also working with a handful of other carts) since 2006. Live Site: http://www.thatsoftwareguy.com Tools Bootstrap Ericka Template Story For years I had a static HTML site designed for desktops. Here’s what the old site looked like: In 2013, I finally updated my site to use Twitter Boostrap 3 so it could be easily viewed on mobile devices. It’s a blog style website, but for some unknown reason, I was never tempted to use actual blogging software like Wordpress.
I have so many Zen Cart mods that I need three four demo stores to show them all! Live Site: http://www.thatsoftwareguy2.com/ Tools Bootstrap Ericka Template Story Some of my modifications overlap each other, so I really had to create multiple sites to show off all of them. I wound up using one of Picaflor Azul’s many templates - the one I settled on was Responsive Sheffield Blue.
This is the store where I sell my mods (mostly Zen Cart). Live Site: http://www.thatsoftwareguy.com/store Tools Zen Cart Template B40515 Story For years, I would distribute software manually. I’d get a payment and then email the software, either from my desktop or from my Blackberry. Why didn’t I use Zen Cart? I know, it seems crazy. Honestly, I was just too busy building sites for other people to build my own.
This is my book group website. We have been reading together for more than ten years. Live Site: http://tampabaybookgroup.org Tools Static HTML Images served via Amazon using the Affiliate link builder. Story I have maintained this site just by editing HTML for many years. I have often thought about taking a more sophisticated approach, but I have never taken the leap. For example, I did an implementation of this using Postgres and Rails that you can see on Heroku.

This is my blog. Live Site: http://thatsoftwareguy.com/blog Tools Wordpress Story Yet another boring blog. I mostly talk about Zen Cart stuff. Lots of the content is just copied from my main site. Almost exclusively read by my mother.
This is my YouTube channel. Lots of videos about Zen Cart. Live Site: http://https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCUsYq9lvnWRD2C9yurCNCQ
This is my Hugo-based site on Github. Live Site: http://scottcwilson.github.io Tools Hugo Aglaus Theme ShrinkTheWeb Markdown Pro Github Source for this website: https://github.com/scottcwilson/hugosite The hugosite repo readme describes how I publish the blog. I think my technique is much easier than the one described in the Hugo documentation.
