CMS Migration

The decision to migrate to Craft CMS was made due to the increased flexibility Craft offers over the previous CMS. With hundreds of entries and relationships between entries one concern was migrating all the content to Craft CMS.

Fortunately Craft CMS has a robust ability to import content as a result 95% of content was completely migrated, with only a small portion of content requiring manual edits.

This migration involved moving content from two different CMSs, ExpressionEngine and Wordpress, into one consolidated system - Craft CMS

Design Enhancements

The existing design was used for the site except for some minor enhancements to modernize the look. Additionally improvements were made to reduce visual clutter and improve user experience as well as address various style issues for phone visitors.

Multi Lingual

The entire Compugen site is in English and French. Multilingual publishing workflow was improved as well. Now switching between the English and French entry, in the control panel, is just one click away.
