My Role

This was probably my biggest ExpressionEngine site to date, and features all the bells and whistles that a large community site needs. The first challenge was writing the necessary migration scripts needed to move all their content and users (12,000+ users, thousands of blog posts and library resources) from Drupal to ExpressionEngine. Apparently this had put a number of other companies they had talked to off the whole project, but after a good few hours of SQL, the task was under control!

Next was to build all the frontend profile, blog, library and calendar editing features for their members to use, and make it a whole lot easier than their Drupal setup. Once those were in place, I moved on to their standard CMS templates, content, searching and social integration (LinkedIn auth, Facebook/Twitter/Google+ sharing) and then the site was launched, with much praise from their Board!
