About the project

With almost five decades in the media industry, NorthSideSun Newspaper is a well-trusted source for news, entertainment, and community events across Jackson, Mississippi. To ensure their viewers had an improved experience, though, they were looking to upgrade from their outdated version of Drupal; this old platform was significantly slowing site loading times as well as performance overall - consequently impacting customer engagement too.
