Why Viini-lehti selected WordPress
and what happened then?
Our organization - and what Viinilehti does?
Digital channels: viinilehti.ﬁ, Viikon viinivinkki newsletter, Viinistä viiniin -apps
The setup 4 years ago: working with Microsoftsolutions and customized platforms started driving
interest towards Open source - and WordPress
… and then came the renovation “project”…
Planning and mapping
Looking for a new CMS and a partner - WordPress vs Drupal and the power of WOM
Why we chose WordPress?
Ease of use and the amenity of the UI
Lack of in-house admins
Striking more as a family-style kind of setup/-community
Was the decision easy?
Maintainability was a concern - vainly
Especially the implementation of our spearhead services were a worry - can we
get everything done with “a blog platform” - again vainly
Didn’t last very long
Transformed into long term reformatting/
development - in which WordPress has proven to be
excellent as well
Now viinilehti.ﬁ is knowingly the largest WordPresssite in Finland - measured with features and diversity
Are we there yet? Most certainly not, but we’re most
certainly getting there - lot’s is still to be done
3 thoughts when choosing
Even though WordPress is very user-friendly it’s
good - yet not mandatory - to have an techorientated person within the (customer) team
It is a highly customizable platform and self-study
goes a long way
It doesn’t need to be a blog it can be a CMS
