Front End Description
TIME Inc provided the PSD mockups for the site and I provided them with a finished CSS/XHTML/PHP WordPress theme.
Back End Description
This is the most complicated sites I have done to date. There are a number of custom admin panels for various aspects of the site both post/page wide and site wide including: custom taxonomy pages, custom menus, custom post options, custom galleries, custom on the fly queries, etc. There were a lot of aspects of this site that are done by a number of custom functions and plugins creates specifically for this site that make it easy for the editors to add/manipulate content as needed.
Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts
Overall – this was a great project to work on as there were times I was not sure how or if something could be done, but we worked through everything to get it done and working just per the original specifications.
