UCL ENGins site launch

The culmination of a lot of work over the summer came this week, with the launch of a new website for the UCL engineering department.

The site, uclengins.org is a  heavily customised WordPress platform with an advanced tagging mechanism and has “gamification” features which encourage site users to become site contributors and work their way up the leaderboards.

We inherited an “interesting” code base to build from and bring this site to life, which proved quite a challenge to deal with when WordPress 4.2/4.3 arrived (with its major changes to the way taxonomy terms are handled) mid-way through the project and our decision to stay up to date resulted in some sleepless nights…  Hats off to Dave Langley for his sterling work getting on top of it in time for the big launch earlier this week!
