MTFC goes for WordPress
This website for Matt’s Trust Fund for Cancer has had a major overhaul. Building your own content management system might be good for the soul but it takes too long to put together and lacks so much when compared to ‘ready made’ systems that have matured and improved over many years benefitting from the involvement of numerous developers together with the feedback from many users.
So, MTFC has now moved over to become yet another WordPress site.
Primarily designed as a ‘blogging’ platform, WordPress can also ‘cut it’ as a CMS.
The current site makes use of some static pages but most of the content for the near future is likely to be in the form of articles. Hopefully, anyone using the site will not get confused over the two different approaches, pages and categorised articles, being used at the same time.
The original site used to look like this: -
The WordPress theme comes courtesy of Michael Hutagalung’s Arthemia Free but with a few tweaks to make it look a little more like his Arthermia Premium version.
His theme is designed to give a magazine style to the WordPress platform.
Maybe we’ll have a try at making it look a bit more original at some point but for now providing more content is the priority.
