In early 2016, the existing WordPress site was slow and painful to use due to conflicting plug-ins. They needed a new website with a look and feel that did justice to the quality of their content.
British Boxing News has a rich archive of blog posts, so it was critical to accurately migrate these posts to the new site. Kye Etherton of Sugar Cube Productions wrote a custom importer to run an overnight migration of 1500 WordPress blog posts from the XML files. Ensuring that the associated images that accompanied each blog post were correctly re-sized was detailed work which the Sugar Cube team delivered efficiently and to time.
Along with blog posts, the new site features improved design, embedded video, a Twitter feed and social sharing. Sugar Cube also provides hosting and ongoing support.
Tim Rickson of TR Sports Agency is delighted with the improved site, which re-launched in November 2016.
