Content Migration Refinement For Horry Georgetown Technical College

By | 2016-07-11

Working on a redesign for your website? HGTC’s revamped webpages needed additional TLC after running through OmniUpdate’s migration script. For this project, I created new snippets, added updates for accessibility and SEO improvements, corrected broken links and fixed legacy content to look great on mobile.

For this project, I worked with Missy at Horry Georgetown Technical College to help her quickly release the migration of her new beautiful redesign out into the “wild!”

I contributed in the following ways:

  • **Reviewed web templates and suggested critical updates–**Added missing or incomplete meta tags; implemented improvements for SEO including restructuring header tags; added the school name to page titles; created hover animations and/or colors for better usability; and more.
  • Modified styles for responsive design–Updated the design of the homepage carousel to look consistent on all devices; modified content styles as necessary; and created new classes as needed to assist with the design.
  • Investigated and fixed malfunctioning snippets and widgets–Fixed JavaScript conflicts in forms; corrected misaligned grids and videos; and modified the XSL code as necessary.
  • Updated .tmpl (template) files to be more useful to end-user–Changed default settings to remove unused content; added pieces that users would often be adding back in; suggested improvements for templates; and updated existing pages using Find/Replace for template options.
  • Cross-checked and re-purposed content from previous website–Thoroughly checked, updated and/or documented any discrepancies between the migrated and previous content; added in new content and links as necessary; and sent daily review e-mails for status of web migration.
  • Ran reports–Corrected broken links and fixed file permissions as necessary.

Thanks to Missy for sharing the following client testimonial–what an honor it was to work with her!

“You did a fabulous job, and were a real pleasure to work with. We were totally on the same page, and I would definitely consider using you again!”
