There is not exactly a lack of technical competence in-house at Unity Technologies, which is behind the leading game development platform Unity, yet the company has chosen HTML24 to handle the ongoing development of Unity WordPress blog.
“Although we are a technically strong company, we cannot be experts in everything, so we needed to work with someone with deep expertise in WordPress. The most important thing was that they could move fast and solve tasks efficiently – and HTML24 could do all of that” says Kristyna Hougaard, Social Media Manager at Unity Technologies.
Unity’s blog universe is quite complex with numerous features, many users and many languages. At the same time, the blog should function with the same database setup, as the company’s other websites.
“Our whole community – that is, blog, forum and feedback system – are the core of the business. We have 400,000 visits per day, so it is important that the whole platform functions perfectly. The blog is our external voice and an effective platform to reach all users at once, so it’s a really important piece.” says Kristyna Hougaard.
Unity Technologies has used HTML24 for a fundamental improvement and to debug the blog. Specifically, among other things, HTML24 acted to correct problems with images not displaying, to properly embed YouTube videos that could not play, and to filter improper comments that were blocked from the comments section. Subsequently, HTML24 provided continuous support for changes and updates, so the blog always functioned as desired.
