One of my first tasks while working at Trusted Media Brands was to consolidate 4 branded websites. The premise was that these sites were primarily the online presence for 4 subscription magazines: ‘Reminisce’, ‘Farm & Ranch Living’, ‘Country Magazine’ & ‘Country Woman Magazine’. We refactored the sites into a WordPress Multisite, used the Genesis Framework for all, used the same Genesis Child Theme for all, then I wrote a non-destructive plugin that could be installed on each site, and leave the theme and child theme untouched. This was essentially a ‘grandchild’ theme. I took full advantage of the WordPress Customizer so as to individualize each theme, while maintaining only one plugin.
I completed this project while in the employment of Second Melody
