Conversion of plain HTML Website to Wordress Theme
This was an inhouse project which we carried out for this website.
We needed to add a Blog to our website to regularly publish helpful information for clients and prospects but because we built our website in plain html, we could either code the blog or use a content management system.
We went with Wordpress to save time on deployment and also prevent technical debt.
With the growing popularity of Wordpress this is a service we have rendered multiple times.
Clients get Websites built in HTML for them and over time they realise they actually want to regularly add new content and not have to call in a developer to do that.
Carrying out this conversion involves understanding and taking inventory of the codebase and all dependencies for styling and interactions.
After understanding the structure of the initial HTML website, it is then sliced and relevant parts converted to the Wordpress PHP format.
We built a fully functional clone of the website in Wordpress with all styling and interactions preserved mmaking it almost impossible for anyone browsing to know they had left the HTML version for Wordpress.
The Website is built to be search engine friendly and in accordance with latest standards.
