Front End Description
The client approached me with a design in progress. From that, I created a basic WordPress theme and then further revised it after more design decisions were given to me.
Back End Description
This CMS was created after the client decided they wanted to migrate from ezPublish to WordPress. We exported all the data, mapped it to the WordPress tables, cleaned up the code, and imported into WordPress. We then created custom rewrite rules to make sure all old URLs would be directed to the new WordPress URL structure. This is a complicated WordPress theme with lots of conditional logic and some custom PHP programming for OpenAds integration.
Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts
Overall, this rivals only one or two other sites in terms of sophisticated template logic and I learned a lot in the process of creating it. We also learned a lot about WordPress that we never knew before when importing and mapping the data from ezPublish into WordPress.
