forum – für Politik, Gesellschaft und Kultur is a monthly, independent magazine publishing stories about politics, society and culture in Luxembourg. Their website provides the editorial staff with a way to engage existing and new readers by publishing news, articles, pod-cast and videos of their regular debates called public forum. Readers will find excerpts from their current publication as well as the means to browse through all the previously published issues and their articles.
A digital subscription feature gives subscribers access to the newest articles and issues in PDF format, while releasing the entire content to the non-subscribers usually a year after the release.
All issues and articles from the first issue in 1976 on are browseable and searchable from the issue archive, allowing users to restrict their search by author, title, published year or even content.
Based on a graphic design by Andrea Beck, TenTwentyFour1024 developed and delivered a WordPress installation combining the fully-responsive forum2015 theme – using selected Bootstrap 4 components – and two additional plug-ins to manage issue and article publication, as well as to import contents from the previously used database.
As for both plug-ins described above, all functionality uses WordPress Custom Posts and Taxonomies. Among the highlights of the development are the deep integration with WordPress, infinite-scroll functionality on the search results page depending on the number of results and automated media-content extraction and tagging from posts that contain audio or video material.
