Why it’s in the Showcase: Offbeat magazine was developed entirely using WordPress theme logic and some custom plugins. The development team created an easily managed visual archive of the magazine’s 20 years of backissues, a club directory system, a restaurants directory system (both of which can be updated with an Excel file upload), a club events system to list events at venues in New Orleans, and the soon to be released festival builder, which will allow site managers to update the events of a festival with just an Excel file upload.
