ETF Corporate WordPress site - now supported by Big Blue Door

24 January 2018

Following on from our recent post about updating a number of sites for the Education and Training Foundation to reflect their updated brand we're delighted to announce that we have been appointed to provide ongoing support to the Foundation for their corporate site, which is based on WordPress. The appointment actually came back in September, but in true agency fashion we've been too snowed under to blog recently! We'll try and do better as part of our (belated) new years resolution.

Over the period of the contract we'll be working closely with the communications team, and a separate agency who manages the hosting setup to ensure the site remains fully secure as well as supporting updates to reflects the latest priorities across the Further Education and Training sector.

We've already delivered a number of incremental improvements to the site, including installing Hotjar so we can track more accurately how users are utilising the current system and identify where user journeys can be optimised. Wider work has included the recent WordPress security updates, to version 4.9.2, and completing a full code review across the system.

We're delighted to be the agency of choice for the Foundation's main communication channel with the sector and look forward to working on the platform in the future.

You may previously have thought of Big Blue Door as primarily a Drupal agency, but we actually support a number of wider systems as well (WordPress, Wagtail etc), so if you need any support in these areas don't hesitate to get in touch.
