Tasks: WordPress installation, export Drupal content, logo design, color scheming, SEO, responsiveness
The previous site was running on Drupal 6.x and due to the complexity of the software it was not updated for quite some time. My proposal was to export the content and move to a self-hosted WordPress. In the future that site will be moved to wordpress.com.
The content was exported using a online export/import service (cms2cms). This actually went quite smoothly. After importing the content into the new WordPress site we focussed on a new theme. Jayadvaita Swami wanted a similar layout as his previous site, but mobile friendly. A theme from StudioPress.com was used to recreate a similar design but with improvement on readability.
