HyperWeb Communications were recently engaged in the re-design and development of Hunter Headline‘s local business news website.
Our brief was to redevelop their existing Drupal website with all it’s custom post types and digital ad delivery functions to a WordPress content management system. Coupled with this was a few thousand articles that had to be exported from Drupal and imported into WordPress custom posts. It was also an opportunity to update the way the content is displayed and to also give the site a face lift with a streamline design, giving the iconic blue branding a few more visual cues to distinguish the different features the website promotes.
The website’s content management system also has advertisement capabilities integrated with scheduling, weighting and reporting functionality.
The outcome is a fresh new look, smooth content transfer, and a future-proof content management system which enables extended functionality to be utilised when required.
