New design & brand
The tired out-dated website built in 2000 for France Today has been redesigned and migrated to over to WordPress, the site is now responsive and ready to engage new audiences. We have supported the migration and new website build.
One of our biggest challenges was to migrate thousands of posts from the old bespoke site to WordPress, We developed an algorithm to match up the old database with the new one to migrate over the bulk of the content, comments, and galleries to the new site.
We built the Interactive map of France using HTML 5 and 2 versions of the hotspots and city from a hand drawn map, by overlaying the icons we have animated them
The administrators have the ability in the admin to tag content to display the latest posts on the map automatically. We also added a ‘range’ for each location so that if no tags have been added it will automatically pick up the geo range to display the closest articles and content.
By adding features like this to the site engages the audience to stay longer on the site and explore France in a fun way.
Bonjour Paris gets on average 5000 unique hits a day with page view levels reaching over 20,000 a day.
This is one of the 3 main critical sites we manage for France Media Group from their portfolio of large traffic sites.
We helped create a modern and fully functional website to encourage new and younger audiences to Bonjour Paris. The old website was dated, lacked new content and had poor usability.
