Peninsula Hotels is an international chain of 5-star hotels that offer luxurious accommodation in ten different countries. The company were looking to revamp their news website which posts up-to-date content relating to the company, partners, accolades and other related news. Content is made up of a collection of news articles, an image gallery and video gallery from the different hotels across the globe.
The designs were supplied to us, and as the lead developer it was my responsibility to ensure the final result replicated them. To do this, I built a bespoke theme on top of a modified version of WordPress which was altered to allow for multilingual content, multiple categories, blogs and URL structures. Special consideration was taken place to ensure that font character sets would not effect the design in different languages as character styles and differences in word lengths could effect the positioning of content on the page.
The result is a high-functioning content management system for news posts and all managed by the in-house team that is supported in four languages.
