The largest web project I have completed to date, Northeast Auctions’ new site is based on the WordPress platform with WooCommerce as the backend of the online auction catalog. The Adamos theme served as a great starting point for the overall site layout, look and feel. Although the online bidform feature is currently disabled pending further testing and implementation of the backend, the e-commerce capability of WooCommerce was modified heavily in order to allow site users to submit bids online to be executed at the auction. With nearly 15,000 items, and average hundreds of visitors, and tens of thousands of page views a day, the architecture of the site also needs to be robust and optimized for efficiency. The site is delivered via CDN, and leverages multiple types of caching to bring the homepage load time to under 1 second.
