We move Deliciouslyorkshire to Wordpress

Home / Blog / We move Deliciouslyorkshire to Wordpress

Written by Giles Bennett

We were approached by Deliciouslyorkshire, the regional food group for Yorkshire and Humber, who had a bespoke Content Management System (CMS) that unfortunately was neither easy to update, or responsive. Their brief was simple, convert the existing site into a platform that they could manage easily themselves as well as making it look good on mobile devices.

Deliciouslyorkshire has now gone live and we have successfully migrated all of their old content (blog posts and recipes) over to the new site.

Anyone who regularly reads our blog will know how we often harp on about the importance of responsive design, particularly in how it increases conversion rates in Magento stores, however, responsive design is just as important with Wordpress sites, as it makes the content easier to read on mobile devices and helps with Google search rankings.

Although we primarily focus on Magento site development, we often add Wordpress sites to E-Commerce stores as it offers store owners a fantastic way of keeping their customers up to date with product and industry news. As CMS platforms go, Wordpress is quite straight forward and with a huge range of plugins available, makes it a great expandable platform for anyone interested in launching a site. For instance, with this project, we used this Mailchimp plugin with the Deliciouslyorkshire site to power their newsletter and site subscribers.

If you need someone to migrate your site onto Wordpress or to make your site responsive get in touch.
