USC24x7 is a community website intended for fans of the University of Southern California (USC) college football team. The website was originally built using Wix in 2018 using the traditional Wix Editor and included an active Blog focus on specific USC topics as well as more general discussions of important topics in college football, a community forum for Site Members to engage with the community, and a unique “Game Day” entertainment feature where Site Members try to guess the final scores of the season’s games, with a final, overall winner being declared at the end of the season.
The site owner wanted to migrate the site to the new Wix Editor X platform to create a fully responsive website for their community members – maintaining all current site functionality. The site is rich with video and image content in addition to the Blog and Forum areas, and having a fully responsive design would enhance the user experience.
We started the project by first designing a Migration Preparation Plan that included a review of all existing page objects and custom Velo code to identify any objects that were not supported by Editor X. (Since Editor X is a newer Wix Platform, some of the existing page objects were not supported.) These unsupported page objects and associated code were then replaced and the revised pages fully tested.
We then completed a full review of the custom “Game Day” code to identify and resolve bugs, errors, and functionality that did not perform as intended. The Game Day portion of the site includes five custom pages available only to Site Members along with an Administrator Dashboard used by the site owner to manage the Game Day operations. Data for Game Day is maintained in five custom Wix Collections which are maintained by the Game Day page and event-triggered code. Together, the custom code and custom Collections insure the integrity of all input data entered by the Site Members and the ranking data calculated during the actual game play.
With the Migration Preparation Plan fully complete, we finally turned our attention to the actual migration of the site content to the Editor X version of the site. The design of each page was adapted for a fully responsive website with three breakpoint sets, insuring an optimum user experience regardless of the visitor’s device type.
