A: The Port is looking to build off of our current website platform and enhance user experience with engaging and fresh content.
Q: How is the current site constructed?
A: The site is built with WordPress. We use GoAnywhere MFT to connect the WordPress database to our local database for pages like the Harbormaster Report, TWIC Escort Application, Berth Applications, Bid Alerts, etc., but we would retain control of that program. We also have some 3rd Party WordPress plugins. A complete list of third-party plug-ins can be found here. ALPorts.com Plug-Ins
