Wordpress conversion and web development for East Asia Student

Hugh Grigg | Kensio Software | Friday 1 May 2020

I provided conversion of a WordPress website into a fast and cost-efficient static website for East Asia Student.

East Asia Student Web Development

Due to a combination of high-quality content and good SEO, the education website receives a relatively high level of traffic, which was becoming expensive to host for WordPress. Ensuring that the WordPress installation was up-to-date and secure also required ongoing work. Converting the website from WordPress to a static website system made it cheaper to operate, faster to use and more secure.

A large part of the conversion work was extracting existing content from the WordPress MySQL database and generating Markdown files to replace it. A Python script automated the content conversion.

The WordPress theme was also replaced with a redesigned static theme with more efficient CSS to render more quickly in users’ browsers.

The new static website is hosted in AWS using S3, Cloudfront and Route53.
