The Roscommon People is a free newspaper with a circulation of over 80,000 in the west of Ireland. Their previous website was created with proprietary software and had not been updated or modernised in some time. Paul & Fiona Healy hired us to build a Joomla!™ based solution for them and transfer as much of the older stories from the proprietary system into the new Joomla system. Additionally they wanted users to be able to subscribe to their newsletter and wanted to support advertising on the website.
We developed a comprehensive solution using the Joomla content management system. We ported thousands of older articles from the previous system and implemented the K2 content management extension to make adding new stories and illustrative images as quick and easy as possible. Additionally we configured an advertising management system to handle banner advertising and classifieds for the Roscommon People. We implemented a beautiful, responsive newspaper themed template which works great on smartphones, tablets and larger screens.
Elements of this Joomla Newspaper website included
- Replacing a proprietary CMS
- Migrating thousands of legacy news articles
- Implementing a modern, responsive template
- Banner advertising functionality
- Classified advertising functionality
