Reasons for Change

There were a number of problems with the old design

  • Only one individual was updating the site making the content subjective and not representative of the whole council.
  • All content was listed in the same category
  • Plug-ins like photo album and video embedding were not user friendly
  • Outdated WordPress theme

Transformation Results

Supa archived all content on the site and created a fresh website with the Content Management System, Joomla. Organized all content to separate in the categories: different affiliate news, council news and general labour news. We customize designed an easy video embed API using simple link recognition from YouTube and Vimeo. VLC-specific instructional videos were created to demonstrate how to manage the site. Finally, a mail listserver was developed for communications between the council and their members.
