GIA – We Are People Too, is one of the key websites for DCCA intelligence gathering. For several years it’s been running on Joomla 1.5 – outdated and growing unwieldy. The recent conversion is to WordPress 3.6 with the integration of Responsive (mobile friendly) display architecture and integrated feeds from a number of locations.
Update: 31 March 2014
[The site you are looking at now is in it’s fourth Word Press design iteration since the 29 August 2013 revision. ]
Why [update from Joomla?]

- Flexibility for media and animation
- Future integration to WordPress Multi-site.
- Blanket subscription on Akismet spam control
