WPTavern: Obama Foundation Launches New Website Powered by WordPress

The Obama Foundation launched its new WordPress-powered website today. The future presidential center, which will be located in Chicago, will manage projects both in the city and other places around the world.

“More than a library or a museum, it will be a living, working center for citizenship,” President Obama said. “That’s why we want to hear from you. Tell us what you want this project to be and tell us what’s on your mind.”

The website integrates the Typeform service for collecting feedback from citizens on their hopes and dreams, as well as the people and organizations that inspire them.

WordPress developers were excited to see that the former President is using the WP REST API introduced in WordPress 4.7.

The custom theme for the Obama Foundation is built using ZURB’s Foundation as its front-end framework. It integrates the jQuery Cycle Plugin for galleries.

The website was created by Blue State Digital, an agency that got its start on the campaign trail and now focuses on serving causes and brands.

President Obama is the first president to select WordPress for his presidential center website.
