The final product was a highly responsive, Search Engine Optimized, and expandable website. In the frontend, visitors can quickly access Gābl’s growing collection of shows. They can choose to listen to them from the website, access them via a collection of third party services, or subscribe to a RSS feed. They can also offer feedback and search show archives.
We designed the website to incorporate a members functionality. Gābl offers a yearly subscription to exclusive content, so we created a membership registration management system, payment processing tool, and member only pages.
The website is accessible for all types of users (members, Admins, subscribers…) via a single, custom login page. Depending on who they are, upon successful login, they’re redirected to specific pages.
On the backend, we built a completely customized version of WordPress for the Gābl team. From it, they can add new shows/media, manage members and respond to contact/sponsorship requests. They can also edit every aspect of static (page) content via a visual builder.
We incorporated the CloudwaysCDN, a delivery network that integrates with our choice hosting provider, Cloudways. This combination of CDN and hosting will be able to handle massive traffic spikes, and scale as the website grows in popularity and size. This premium solution also directly leads to the site’s stellar speeds.
Performance wise, the website is extremely quick. It scores a 95+ on Google PageSpeed Insights, 93 (A) on PingDom and 100% and 96% on the two GTMetrix scores, respectively.
