Rugby Rugby is a site dedicated to everything Rugby including news, tournament coverage, interviews, and merchandise.
Front End Description
The user interface for this web site was designed by a graphic designer and then I took the mockups and created the CSS and XHTML to match it.
Back End Description
There is a lot of custom content scraping functionality in place to dynamically bring in content for specific pages.
Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts
I learned quite a bit about XML and processing XML feeds as this web site is basically driven by incoming XML feeds from multiple locations. I also learned quite a bit about working with multiple “team” members from around the world as there were some people from the US and abroad working on this project at the same time. This web site also uses WordPress’s category logic to dynamically create pages on the fly when new categories and posts within categories are created. Overall, this project really let me push WordPress to it’s fullest potential.
