St. Charles Herald Guide Custom CMS to WordPress Migration

St. Charles Herald Guide Website Migration Overview

The Louisiana Sportsman is a long established local publishing company with a number of web properties. They engaged the WordHerd team to migrate all of their newspaper and magazine websites to WordPress. The first engagement was a 35,000+ article migration for the St. Charles Herald Guide from a custom CMS. In addition to the standard copy and media migration, we also established 301 redirects, moved article view counts and created a new custom Paywall plugin that integrates with their print publishing distribution center.

"As brands begin the complex process of migrating their sites off Adobe Business Catalyst in the wake of the end of development announcement, having a partner in WordHerd with extensive experience transferring business sites from Business Catalyst to WordPress can be absolutely instrumental to success. WP Engine's WordPress digital experience platform coupled with WordHerd's expertise will prove an unbeatable combination as companies re-imagine their favorite Business Catalyst features on WordPress."
