What They Needed

The organization had outgrown their WordPress.com setup. They needed to port their extensive content onto a new hosting provider and adjust their theme to set them up for more flexibility in the future.

What We Built

  • Successfully transferred 2,384 media files, 138 pages, and 525 posts by 70 different users.
  • Designed a backwards-compatible layout for old pages and media assets, with an option for customized, complex layouts moving forward.
  • Improved social sharing on pages and articles so artists can more easily post articles across their own social networks.
  • Improved SEO performance.
  • Presented more robust functionality to showcase completed projects, which Rocket Grants is now positioned to implement when budgeting allows.
