Case Study - Sprichie
Sprichie is one-stop news blog, covering everything from business, technology, health to movies, music and sports. The project came to us as web development and maintenance project, where the IT Chimes development team was required to optimize and tweak the site features and add several added functionalities. The idea was to create a news and social portal replete with complete user front-end support, besides providing optimal back-end support. We understood the premise and delivered Sphrichie website with more added functionalities and better user experience.
ConceptSprichie.com was required to help latest news and fun blogs go viral, and hence needed to look funky and interesting at the same time. Hence, WordPress was used as it is the best Content Management System (CMS) out there for blogging platforms. Sprichie users can create their own profiles; add friends and tag news and items in terms of their interests and favorite topics. The root concept was to develop the website as fun, crisp, exciting and share worthy.
TechnologyThe Sprichie project was part developed when it was handed over to the IT Chimes web development team. The site code was part written in WordPress default and other in customized code. This issue had several negative undertones working against the site performance and overall functionality. The tags working alongside the posts were being stored in the same database table, which hindered categorizing posts in more groups and sub-groups as required by the users. IT Chimes’ experienced and talented MySQL software developers did a little out-of-the-box thinking and reworked the site code, such that the above-mentioned problem was fixed with style. The users can easily tag and share their posts as per their interests in a seamless manner.
