Best of Philly

We recently worked with magazine publishers, MetroCorp Inc. to create an online directory of their popular Best Of series for Philadelphia Magazine and Boston Magazine.

The Best Of Philly series highlights the most popular and highest rated restaurants, businesses, entertainment and services in the area. Each year the magazine dedicates one issue to Best Of Philly highlighting the best of the best in the city and surrounding suburbs. The Philadelphia Magazine team wanted to create a clean and organized way to search this list on their website.

To build the Best of Philly section, we had to import their legacy content, which includes Best Of awards dating back to 2006.  Using a combination of a data importer and custom code, we were able to import all of their content into custom post types and taxonomies in WordPress.

The new Best of Philly section allows the visitor to scroll through a list of categories and view some information including details about the winner, photos from the location, addresses, phone numbers and website.
