Mac Miller : WordPress Publisher Spotlight

Joel  - 6Degrees Social LLC, Project Leader, answered a few questions about Mac Miller’s site and WordPress.

Tell us about the site:
Mac Miller is yet another successful artist hailing from Pittsburgh’s Rostrum Records.  Rostrum chose 6Degrees to build a community site that would be a great destination for fans interested in staying up on news, tour, photos, videos and much more.

What were the reasons you chose WordPress to build the site?
Mac’s fan base is huge but also active.  We needed an established content management system that would be able to handle the traffic while also having the functionality a music artist requires.  After we discovered BuddyPress there was no question that the WordPress / BuddyPress combination was the right direction to go.  We’re also pleased with WordPress’s admin system as we find it very user-friendly for any content managers that me assisting the site.  Bottom line, WordPress is stable, user-friendly and has an incredible developer community supporting it.  All these resources made WordPress the answer.

What are your team’s favorite WordPress features?

Custom post types are very impressive and flexible, and the huge library of plugins for almost any feature you could want.
