I’ve been working on some fundamental changes to the GovIntranet WordPress theme and plugins in preparation for moving to version 5.0.
The Forestry Commission and associated organisations used a bespoke content management system for their intranet and it was due to drop out of support early in 2019. The search for a new intranet platform was on, and I first heard from the Forestry project team towards the end of 2016 when they were exploring options.
It started, as many new GovIntranet features do, with an idea from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. The internal communications team wanted a way for staff to post recognition and praise for other members of staff on the intranet.
My latest client intranet project to come to fruition is Kewnet, the intranet for the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
It was just over five years ago, when I received a DM from lesteph asking how things were going at the Ministry of Justice, and if I fancied a coffee.
