This popular longstanding and highly regarded website in the UK fishing community was running out of options as the old site’s technical architecture was out of date and proving difficult to maintain. The decision was made to migrate the whole site from Drupal to the WordPress platform, which necessitated the migration of 8,000 news posts, 30,000 forum topics and over 50,000 users.visit website
The project was planned and managed by Qi who dealt with the sourcing of the contractors required to perform a data migration of this scale, and the build of the new site to include: full customer management access, a banner advertising system, Google Adsense integration, a multifaceted forum, custom registration, as well as a dedicated cloud hosting solution.
The migration and build of the new Total Fishing was a long and often complex project. I have to say that Justin at Qi really stuck with us at every stage, always coming up with and answer or solution and successfully project managing the migration process and site build with great determination.
