Harbourside Church

Harbourside Church is located on the North Shore in Auckland that holds services every Sunday. We worked with their team to migrate an exisiting to a new Wordpress content management system.

The challenge

The Harbourside Church website was built on a platform that was difficult for staff to manage and update content. When the previous developer moved overseas, no-one was left with any knowledge of how to make changes. In addition, there was an urgency to come up with a solution as many important changes needed to be communicated to the church members.

The team at Blackdrop were asked to rebuild the website, making it easier for staff to make changes. In addition, we were asked to make several improvements and updates to the overall website layout.

The goals

Redevelop the website on an easy-to-use content management system while making layout modifications and visual improvements to the website.
  • Copy an existing website and redevelop to be based on a Wordpress CMS system
  • Improve the visual layout and design
  • Provide integration with live video streaming

Our approach

Responsive design and quick turn-around
Blackdrop started by stripping back the origional develpment, salvaging useful components that could be transferred to the new website and then started to recode the website from scratch. We updated the HTML and CSS of the website, improving mobile responsiveness and adding additional design and layout requirements.

Once the new website had been successfully migrated to a new Wordpress content management system, we added several functional enhancements and helped integrate a new Live Streaming function which allows services to be broadcast via the website in real time.
