We selected WordPress as we got positive references, and as it’s the most popular open source platform for content management. It was easy to find WordPress consultants via Upwork and other freelancer portals, but the quality of consultants was not easy to determine. Our first experience was bad. Our second experience very good.
The standard implementation of WordPress is quite basic, both regarding its back-office and front-office. Actually, the templates look a bit outdated. So, some tailoring was definitely needed in our case. Especially, because we wanted an easy hamburger menu, integrating all the menu options. And, because we wanted the interface to be aligned with that of our other websites.
The Iceclog website, using a WordPress framework, is recently introduced and now updated per September 1, 2016. Some tweaks are made, to make it better for users. I highlight these here:
In the next version, we will look into further improving SEO, design improvements, a hamburger menu to reduce the number of menu lines in the mobile version, functionality for adding product reviews, and move more of our content into iceclog.
In the mean time, we review the security functionality, as the openness of WordPress also makes it a common target for WordPress spam.
