OTR Pro Trucker is a redo of an older site. The primary goals were to pull old database info into a new site that makes use of WordPress and takes advantage of WordPress’ content management system allowing the authorship of blogs to be used primarily for search engine optimization efforts.

We wrote a lot of custom responsive code. Most notably I created some Gravatar widgets to handle profile listing and detailed views. Also wrote some fun code to convert states from full name to abbreviations and a bunch of other cool stuff.

We had to create some work arounds to make our older databases work; we are forcing a template upon a file that takes in a GET variable from the old database to produce the company profiles. A WordPress solution would be to create the template as we did and re-create all these pages.
