We worked with another digital design company to create a bespoke solution for one of their clients that had to integrate seamlessly into a WordPress website. Our responsibility within the project was to build the logic behind the plugin using WordPress’ plugin development methodologies and techniques.
The purpose of the plugin is to provide a list of “to-do” items that can be created by administrators and then users could mark these items as complete or incomplete. These items had to be categorised and scheduled to be visible to users when necessary. Users also needed to be able to sort these items by different rules and change the layout of how the items are displayed, with the plugin saving these options for each user.
On average, the client’s website receives around 250,000 unique visitors every month with an active user base of over 20,000. Since their traffic was so high, one of the priority requirements for the solution was to be as efficient as possible in both the front end and back end aspects of the plugin.
