Matt Ridley, world-renowned author has been a client of ours for over 10 years now and we have recently re-platformed his new website mattridley.co.uk from Umbraco to WordPress.
We’re thrilled to highlight our recent collaboration with Matt Ridley, renowned author and journalist, in transitioning his extensive blog from an end-of-life Umbraco 7 platform to a more future-proof WordPress environment. Given Matt’s large following and the wealth of content involved—over 800 blog posts—this was no small feat.
Our skilled developers at Retox crafted a bespoke import tool to seamlessly migrate all existing blog posts. This automated process saved countless hours of manual effort, allowing Matt and his PA Michelle to focus on what they do best: creating compelling content. The switch to WordPress provides Matt with a more robust, scalable platform that will support his evolving needs, ensuring that his insightful writings continue to reach and inspire his broad audience well into the future.
What We Did
Migration from Umbraco to WordPress
"Retox are extremely helpful and professional, they provided me with a great website. Any query/amendment was met with no fuss by their staff. All necessary training was provided for how we update the website 'behind the scenes' with Julie, Charles and Liam being super helpful and efficient on this. We would highly recommend them and will continue to use Retox for all our website needs."
