Website Migration

The UBMBC website has moved to a new home - it is running on Treepl CMS.

Background

Our Club website ran on the Adobe Business Catalyst CMS Platform for the last 8 years. Business Catalyst was a secure, reliable home for the Club website.

As a result, our Activities Program, Club Membership and important Guidelines are readily accessible on phones, tablets and desktop computers.

Adobe terminated the Business Catalyst CMS Platform on 26 September 2021. Thousands of websites around the world using Business Catalyst had until then to find a new home.

The UBMBC website has migrated to Treepl CMS. Treepl CMS is a modern, secure, reliable content management system built specifically to replace Business Catalyst. Treepl CMS replicates all Business Catalyst functionality and offers a lot more.

Project Status

A test instance of the UBMBC Website was built using Treepl to confirm base CMS functionality.

Data stored in the production UBMBC website was reviewed/cleansed to ensure the minimum data was migrated.

Website data was moved from Business Catalyst to a new Treepl website and converted to Treepl data structures. All code was moved. Standard code was converted to work with Treepl. UBMBC specific code was rewritten to work in the Treepl environment.

The Activities Database has been rebuilt and imported.

A new Member Database has been built and imported. New Accounts have been created for each Club Member. All current Members have been invited to logon to the new website.

The Join/Renew Components of the Membership System are still under development.

Code refactoring is ongoing. Forms and Workflow Conversion is ongoing.

When this work is complete the Club will resume processing membership Applications.
