Channel Swimming Dover

The website was set up to showcase Dover Museum’s unique and comprehensive Channel Swimming photographic archive and object collection. The site also contains a wealth of information, including research on swimmers, swims and all things cross-Channel Swimming.

In order to accommodate all of the information – hundreds of swimmers, their swims and photos, and the relationships between them – in a way that would be maintainable by editors and accessible to visitors, CommunitySites built the site using a heavily customised version of WordPress in which different post types can belong to other post types. That data is then presented in three different search interfaces; thus, for example, it’s possible to search only for successful swims, for swimmers with photos or for photos of a particular place.
