FIRST PHASE - UNDERSTANDING THE MAIN PAIN pointS
Semperis website was custom designed, and built on a boilerplate template while development environments are not synced. The site has had 20 (!) active plugins that affect the site’s performance & DB. A lot of the CSS code was irrelevant or duplicate lines. It was difficult to fix bugs or create new features.
