Welcome to the wonderful world of blocks! While everyone else was complaining about the new Gutenberg editor in WordPress and installing the Classic editor plugin, Surge saw the opportunity to maximise the content creation potential of Gutenberg for our client TISA.
TISA need to create large amounts of content quickly, and need flexibility in the look and layout of the pages they create. Offering a block-based way to create content rather than traditional templates offered them the level of control they required to create an engaging site.
The TISA site also consists of an Event booking system that integrates users and sign-ups with Workbooks CRM. The project involved a complex migration of a large amount of content across from a dated custom-built CMS to WordPress. We also produced a Laravel web application to replace the limited directory features of their old CMS.
