theestablishment.co wanted to migrate off Medium.com to their own open-source platform. Working with DevCollaborative, I set up a process to move their 1000+ article archives into a WordPress site. DevCollaborative modified a free WordPress theme to reflect their brand, and the site re-launched in 2018.
When The Establishment ceased operations in 2019, I converted their site into a static HTML archive that will showcase their work into the future.
This project was simple in terms of WordPress configuration – WP’s core functionality is designed for this kind of blog-style content – but the two migrations, first from Medium.com’s HTML export to WordPress XML, and then from WordPress to static HTML, provided interesting technical challenges.
