The site and its processes

The official website for Rubik's Brand Limited.

The site's aim is to be the "go-to" location for all things "Rubiks". It employs ExpressionEngine's multi site manager to provide location specific sites to North America, Europe and the UK.

The web shop is provided by Expresso Store and sells a wide range of official Rubik's Brand items including the "classic" 3x3 cube, puzzles, games, jigsaws, stickers and novelty gifts. Using multi site manager the product pricing is displayed in UK Pounds, Euros and US Dollars with orders funnelled for local fulfillment.

We inherited an existing (non responsive) site built on an old version of EE and started by upgrading to 2.9.2 along with all the plugins. We then gave the site a re-design, which included making it responsive.

We're now working on desgns and layouts for many of the content pages so expect the site to change and improve over the year.

Add-ons and EE special sauce

Add-ons used are: Expresso Store, Channel Images, Crumbly, Detour Pro, Low Reorder, SEO Lite, Transcribe, MC Country and GW Code Categories.

We also developed our own plug-in to allow the client to manage product filtering by price and category.
