Truth-Out.org Launches News Portal Redesign in Joomla CMS

Boston MA, April 2nd, CNP integrations announces the launch of Truth-Out.org using Joomla CMS.

(PRWEB) April 02, 2012

The Truth Out organization is known for their often controversial and alternative view points out side of main stream media. Their web site which is a popular thought provoking source of news and information made them targets of numerous cyber-attacks and due to the heavy volume of traffic from their extensive readership; the old framework built on the Drupal CMS platform was also problematic and inefficient.

The new framework, built on the Joomla CMS platform, marks a major technical accomplishment from the support teams at CNP Integrations. They have developed a unique process for migrating Drupal sites to the Joomla platform. While there are a few companies doing this type of migration none have yet migrated a site of this scale and complexity. CNP Integration's new process has trimmed the level of effort required, thus minimizing cost and time to market. In addition to refining a complex process for a Drupal to Joomla migration they developed several custom extensions to facilitate Truth Out's proprietary workflows and content management practices.

"As a Project Manager for many different types of Joomla! sites, Truthout.org is definitely one of the most interesting projects we've run across. With it's unique requirements for security, content, and user management, CNP Integrations was able to employ innovative solutions to help build the site into a successful, and secure portal with the potential to grow in the future. This was an exciting challenge and a great opportunity for us to showcase our integrations and support capabilities," says project manager Jonathan Neubauer.

In addition to the new Joomla CMS platform rolled out by the CNP Integrations team they relocated the site's hosting to CNP's new cloud based hosting platform which will offer significant savings for ongoing support and a proactive security strategy through CNP's partnerships with RackSpace and SecureLive.
