We’ve had a pretty busy few months here at interconnect/it and, as a consequence, we’ve failed to tell the world about a large number of website’s we’ve built recently.
So here’s the first – launched in mid-Spring 2011, the new corporate Informa Telecoms & Media was built by us over winter. It’s our most sophisticated ever WordPress implementation, offering a huge range of functionality that allows the marketing team at the company to quickly and easily show off the wide range of products and services on offer.
- Adds WordPress Sections – a new tool by us
- Dramatic extension of the WP widgets system
- Powerful aggregation tools
- Easy to create alternative sites for other brands
- Large range of banner and image options
- Social integration
- WordPress Multisites
- Mega menus
- Lots of other clever stuff we can’t tell you about!
The front-end design was supplied to us by Informa’s internal design team. We then took this, added WordPress specific design elements, and developed the workflow, plugin suite and theme that now allows Informa Telecoms & Media to quickly promote events and new product ranges throughout their website.
A large part of the job centred around a blogging platform for Informa’s analysts, with author specific taxonomies allowing for a more sophisticated way of allowing visitors to drill down into information. As a consequence, the Analysts Blogs element of the site adds a range of features that isn’t commonly seen in WordPress based blogs.
Informa Telecoms & Media run a huge range of events. Their website previously failed to drive traffic to events and, where it did, failed to capture the interest of visitors. Consequently, we developed functionality to allow for the quick and easy aggregation of events and the automatic creation of .ics files allowing visitors to add events to their diaries.
The site is almost too big to describe fully, so why not just go and take a look?
