Shortly after we delivered the carousel we were asked to migrate ADVA Optical Networking's WordPress blog into a newly designed responsive blog section in their Sitecore website. The added challenge was maintaining imported social network posts, URLs and comments. To meet this challenge we developed a custom XML import tool with auto-import functionality. This useful tool maps field, URLs, social posts and comments to the new blog section in Sitecore.
Following the migration ADVA Optical Networking's blog called 'Technically Speaking' sits in its own blog folder within the Sitecore content tree. Content editors can create new blog content in Sitecore's familiar UI, with each blog post grouped into folders based on the creation date. As well as maintaining social network posts, URLs and comments, ADVA Optical Networking's blog feeds and main blog pages seamlessly integrate with an eye-catching design. The blog section is also capable of utilising all the Sitecore features like personalisation and analytics, enabling Sitecore editors and marketers to get even more out of Sitecore, without compromise.
