Microsoft Age of Empires is a community-oriented WordPress website built with Sage, a Laravel PHP web framework-based theme. The website fosters user engagement through news updates, forums, and the Insiders Program.
Michael Chavez was hired to build out the user flow of the Insider Sign Up and Sign In process and enhance the editor experience for the news update feed by creating custom Gutenberg Block layouts. These layouts provided editors with a preview of how the page would appear before publishing.
With the invaluable support from the Microsoft team and Michael's Laravel and WordPress expertise, the site was successfully launched to great acclaim, leading to a significant increase in user engagement.
