Peterborough Local History Society (PLHS) was formed in 1991 by a group who believed that the city needed an association where people could come together to share and enjoy the history of the area. Since then, they’ve grown to a society with around 75 members. Some of their members are researchers, delving into specific avenues of history and some are authors of local books, whilst the majority just want to learn from various speakers.
Joining on to one of our maintenance plans, Julie of the PLHS agreed with us it would probably be best making best use of their time by spending the first few months working on redesigning the website from the ground up. Lots of outdated and abandoned WordPress plugins we’re used and the backend was in a sorry state. We developed the new website using WordPress, a platform the society were familiar and happy with using. We created custom page templates using the Advanced Custom Fields plugin to create robust and dynamic page templates, allowing the society to maintain their website with ease, with no need for coding experience. As with all of our websites, it’s fully responsive across all devices.
