About the Tech
This site was built on WordPress using the visual page builder Beaver Builder as well as custom theming.
My Role on this Project
While I did not create this site initially, I helped to add new features and make improvements that touched on every page.
In addition to general site maintenance I was responsible for taking care of many things: Building out an interface for a third party API; Upgrading the blog search; Making SEO improvements; Creating a new registration form; Deploying changes to production; Keeping plugins up to date; Performing quality assurance testing to make sure everything was looking great.
SEO was one area that we managed to make many improvements to. Using modern tools I found many issues in both the URL structure and HTML tags; and explained to the team both the cause of these and why they mattered to our ranking. They approved my plan to fix things, and afterwards scans showed a significant improvement.
