ConservativeHome is one of the UK’s leading political news websites. Started in 2005, this website aims to represent UK grassroots Conservative opinion.
For it’s first 8 years ConservativeHome used the blogging platform, Typepad. In 2013 we were given the task of redesigning the site and migrating all of the existing content to WordPress. The new content management system would streamline the process of adding articles and images to the site for the growing number of authors.
Another key part of the Typepad to WordPress migration was to allow advertising to be served in key locations on the page as a way of generating revenue for the website.
