‘The Bulger Beat’ Site

‘The Bulger Beat’ Site

Special focus microsite for Lawyers Weekly

When the Bulger trial was big news in Boston (and around the country for that matter), Lawyers Weekly didn’t want their coverage of the trial and related aspects to get thrown in with everything else on their site. So they had me design and develop this special focus page devoted to everything Bulger.

Challenges emerge with such projects due to the fact that the company’s IT department wasn’t located in-house. Our web sites were set up in WordPress, but most administrative abilities would be locked out. This site in particular was set up under the original theme the company had when I started, which didn’t allow any editing of CSS or template files (later on, a more robust theme was installed which at the least allowed for adjustments to CSS). These areas remain locked due to the company’s security standards.

As such, I had to work hand-in-hand with folks in IT to get this page template designed, built and launched.
