The boston.com digital team recently re-wrote and migrated all of boston.com to WordPress. Join us to learn about our experience with the migration, the challenges we faced and how we overcame them, and the great impact it has had for our journalists. We will discuss how to scale a WordPress site as big as ours, and some of the specific needs of a news website and how to meet those using WordPress, including creating custom post types and fields, working with the WP media library, external embeds, and more.
