Description

This site is a one-stop-shop for blogging mums in New Zealand. It aggregates 200+ RSS feeds and displays their latest posts on the front page of KMB. The site also stores meta data from each blog so that visitors can easily find new mums to follow.

My Role

I created the HTML/CSS templates from Sarah’s design, and then created a new WordPress theme. I installed all the plugins that would be needed to allow Sarah to manage the site herself.

The main plugin used is FeedWordPress, which allows you to import RSS feeds into WordPress at regular intervals. I had to modify the code slightly so that it only ever imports the latest post (rather than the entire feed), otherwise the database quickly fills up.
