A membership organisation required an update to their WordPress website. The website had been developed at a time when the the capability of plugins to provide complex functionality was limited, much of the functionality was coded. This also meant that they were unable to update the theme to a a more modern one.
The website was extensive website with lots of data with functionality including:
- Membership system
- Document database
- Events management
- Members’ directory
Quite a bit of this content is restricted to members only.
We took on the project to upgrade the site to use commercially available theme and plugins. The aims of the project also included ensuring that the long term cost of site maintenance is minimised, which is why it was important to remove the code. The data from the original site had to be transferred and converted into a format supported by the commercial plugins.
The client is now able to change content and maintain the site as they wish whilst knowing that the software is supported commercially.
