We cooperated with a digital conversation platform that connects the private sector with the world’s leading security experts. It delivers relevant analysis of news and events that helps readers accurately anticipate and safely navigate the global security environment. This customer asked us to migrate the website and all the content from Drupal to WordPress.
In the migration process, we had to copy all the existing site styles for an exact match between the old and new sites’ templates, as well as add new features. A special requirement was that pages needed to be redirected correctly to maintain the site’s SEO positions in search engines. These goals were complicated by numerous bugs on the Drupal site.
To solve all these challenges, we have developed custom functionality using complicated architectural solutions in the form of algorithms.
We migrated the existing content (posts, pages, and all additional content types), as well as added functionality that was not originally present on the WordPress site. This included the possibility to branch the promotional sidebars, as well as provide relationships between the articles that described the situation in a particular region (Asia, Africa, Americas, etc.). Since the site has its own experts who provide its content and analysis, our team also created the special Cyber Advisory Board to present the cybernetics experts’ bios in a staggered pattern.
