Challange accepted

Jigital accepted the challenge of converting an existing Sitecore site to WordPress.  The kicker was to replicate the functionality of the Sitecore 'Experience Editor' 

We happened to stumble on a tool called 'UnlimitedElements for Elementor' which allowed us to program simple components within WordPress that could dragged on to the page and edited within Elementor


What is UnlimitedElements?

UnlimitedElements for Elementor is a plugin specifically designed for the popular WordPress page builder called Elementor.

It enhances Elementor's capabilities and offers a developer the ability to create thier own components, easily, using a basic programming language. 

All of the Sitecore components for this project were re-created in UnlimitedElements that can be edited by a user within Elementor


Sitecore experience editor in WordPress

By leveraging UnlimitedElements for Elementor, Jigital was able to provide a similar editing experience for content authors and administrators in WordPress as they had in the original Sitecore site.

This allowed them to maintain the familiar interface and functionalities, ensuring a seamless transition for users familiar with the 'Experience Editor.'


A project successfully delivered

Overall, the combination of Jigital's expertise, WordPress, and the UnlimitedElements for Elementor plugin enabled them to successfully convert the Sitecore site to WordPress while replicating the key features of the 'Experience Editor.'


Our technology speciality is Sitecore, Umbraco and .NET and we help companies build digital solutions and providing our wealth of experience and insights in delivering complex IT projects in the form of bespoke consultancy and CTO as a service. 

Our greatest asset is being able to have complex technical discussions with specialists and translate that information into plain English that everyone can understand.

We also understand that technical people often get pigeon holed into 'do this and don't ask questions' which leads to people not thinking about the actual problem.  By keeping a flat organisational structure and removing 'project management' as much as possible we always look at the problem from 'how does this solution solve a business problem and move things forward, both for the us and our client'.  Reframing the problem in this manner, we are able to look at problem from a business and technical perspective recommend different approaches, the various trade-offs of each one free from any constraints.

Jigital have over a decades experience delivering complex 'enterprise' level digital solutions leveraging Sitecore and Umbraco for clients all over the world
