The Environmental Council of States had a website over a decade old. With that came over a decade of pdfs, word documents, and other files there were being hosted where members could not access them (either due to a broken CMS or various firewalls.)
We worked together through strategy sessions to give the website a purpose: To be a tool that celebrates and supports members’ efforts. This meant getting to the bottom of what content needed to migrate to the new site and letting it, along with member needs, lead our reorganization effort and visual design choices.
With all of that content, a priority had to be making it easy to find and have it be relevant to their audiences. Thanks to FacetWP, a filtering plugin from developer Matt Gibbs, we were able to provide multiple pathways to content that enabled a true “hub and spoke” experience to be developed.
