Queens Diamond Jubilee

This was a massive job which involved me working in-house with Shipley based agency Igniyte. First of all the WordPress site was built and launched. Custom design based on Paul Blandford’s excellent work, it featured custom advertising widget positions, MailChimp integration, an interactive map for street parties including a custom form which auto-generated posts in Draft form. When reviewed a Google maps marker was automatically produced and the map recentered.

After launch the Magento site got built. Multi currency (Pound, Dollar and Euro) with daily automated exchange rate updates, Worldwide shipping using Royal Mail and ParcelForce, Shipping Tracking, Cron based backup, Google Shopping, Profit reports, Admin pricing over-rides, Vodafone promotion tie-in 100% order discounts, realtime European VAT number checking for wholesalers.

A hugely successful installation, it was moved across to a heavy weight dedicated server to cope with the high demand.
