It does some good things and internalizes the JSON API stuff. Upgrades went well on most of our installs. We did have some issues though.

My role in this is more of a consultant (web design is being done externally by CHIPS NYCWho do seem pretty awesome. Their work is really nice and I love thinking about this move from a FileMaker Pro/AppleScript solution into WordPress.) but I’ve built a few things to help get us past (or into) some sticking points. I used one of the HTML5up templates to make this super quick example. I’m not thrilled to have a white guy doing the video but it was the highest production value I found after a quick search (that might be shaped by having to use English). The […]
